  • the Lala JFounders Brewing Co. is entirely open to the outdoors. Recently renovated and totally revamped, there’s an enormous deck that pales in comparison to the amount of people standing on it.

    55555 by the Lala J

  • Thurgood C.Awesome atmosphere! Put an order in at the front for food and then wait for a waiter at a table to get some of the greatest beer around.

    55555 by Thurgood C.

  • Michele AGreat Oatmeal Stout

    55555 by Michele A

  • Michael D.Thoroughly unimpressed with their food. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich, which was literally lunch meat and hot sauce on bread. Their beer are mostly over-hopped takes on pale ales.

    55555 by Todd S.

    55555 by chris c.

    55555 by Leah N.
