Day 36 Drink: Founders Centennial
As college buddies Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers dreamed of opening a brewery. That dream was put on hold for a few years, but it was kept alive as the pair made homebrew. Founders Brewing was born in the vacant and rundown Wolverine Brass Works building in Grand Rapids, Mich. In 2007, the brewery moved about a mile away to larger facilities.
Founders Centennial is an unfiltered IPA that 7.4 percent alcohol by volume and 65 IBUs. Slightly cloudy amber color with a moderately sized firm head. Overall inviting wild flower and spice flavor profile.
