Founders Brewing closes taproom
Founders Brewing Co. has been a bit of a mess this summer, but it'll be finished soon.
But first, the taproom must be closed on Sept. 3, and it will re-open to the public on Sept. 16.
The taproom will have normal hours on Sept. 2, which is Labor Day.
“As we’re nearing the end of our expansion completion, we’re seeing changes happen and happen quickly,” Founders Communications Manager Sarah Aldrich writes on Founders’ website. “The trailers that we were using for our company store and bathroom have been removed from our ‘front yard’ to make space for our construction team to finish up work on our beer garden."
The company store, which was located in a trailer outside the taproom during construction, closed on Aug. 12.
Founders offers free shipping on purchases from the online store during the downtime, until the retail spot opens up with the rest of the brewery in September.
