    Founders rarely needs an introduction. You are in the tap room at Ground Zero. Chat up your server. Enjoy the serious mainstays, and the tap-room only specialties.

    Founders always has wonderful beers on tap, but if you're not sure if you'd like one, ask for a sample.

    The Devil Dancer is full of spicy goodness, but not for the delicate palate. Be warned: if you're not comfortable with vindaloo strength this sandwich will eat you for breakfast! Best eaten with beer
