About Founders Brewing Co.
Founders Brewing Co. was established in 1997 by two craft beer/home brewing enthusiasts—Dave Engbers and Mike Stevens. Specializing in “complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor”, Founders “doesn’t brew beer for the masses.” Today, Founders ranks among the top 30 largest craft breweries in the U.S. They have received awards from numerous sources, including: World Beer Cup, European Beer Star, Great American Beer Festival, RateBeer and BeerAdvocates.

100% family owned and founded in 1890, Mahou San Miguel, has been Spain’s leading brewing company for 125 years. With eight centers, spanning across the globe, Mahou San Miguel purchased a minority stake in Founders Brewing Co. in 2015. Together they are focused on long-term strategic growth, with a commitment to brand longevity and product quality.
