Founders Brewing Company has a reputation for creating outstanding craft beer with gorgeous label art. The brews we tried while visiting their taproom recently are no exception to that rule and we even picked up some bottles to add to the label art collection. While collecting label art might seem a bit silly, it gives us a reminder of how deeply the craft brewing community is connected to the communities in which they thrive.
Label art, especially that which is commissioned from local artists, should be one of the most important things about the craft beer you enjoy. Ok, yes, we realize that flavor, aroma, and finish are all huge factors, but locally commissioned label art shows a deep dedication to the community. This is something every craft brewery should strive for, as we’re capable of affecting great changes in our communities overall.
Without many of these great craft breweries, art programs at local schools would no longer exist. The local art class at the museum may be discontinued without the funding that the local craft brewery offers. A local family may not have the income needed to survive without locally commissioned artwork created for their brewery nearby. One simple feature of a craft beer could mean a huge difference to dozens of people, which is absolutely astounding considering our breweries often start out so small.
The Founders taproom has a great list of brews available right now. We particularly love their Rubaeus, which has gained a decidedly large amount of popularity since its release. Much the same as Frootwood, which became a hit shortly after its release as well. Founders clearly have a solid hand for brewing. Below we’ve listed a few of the great brews they have on tap currently (bear in mind this list could change before you visit).
Make sure to stop back in and tell us about the brews you tried at the Founders taproom. We love hearing from our readers and your comment might spark our next brew feature. In the meantime, from all of us in South Florida, happy tasting!
