Boyne Highlands – Founders Brewing Company – Zoo Bar – February 20, 2015

Founders Brewing Company has grown into one of the highest recognized breweries in the United States with a simple philosophy: “We don’t brew beer for the masses. Instead, our beers are crafted for a chosen few, a small cadre of renegades and rebels who enjoy a beer that pushes the limits of what is commonly accepted as taste. In short, we make beer for people like us.” Enjoy a selection of complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor as Founders Brewing Co. takes over the Zoo Bar taps at 4pm.

Beer List

  • Centennial IPA
  • Dirty Bastard: Scotch Style Ale
  • All Day IPA: Session Ale
  • Red’s Rye IPA
  • Porter
  • Black Rye: Dry Hopped Dalk Ale Brewed with Rye
  • Backwoods Bastard: Ale Aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels
  • Pale Ale: Dry Hopped Pale Ale

This event is part of our 2015 Winter Tap Takeover Series. We invite you to join us each Friday as a different brewery takes over the taps in either the Slopeside Lounge or Zoo Bar.
