Founders Brewing Co. is bringing back a winter event that celebrates specialty brews.
The Grand Rapids-based brewery said the Firkin Freezeout will return for its eighth year this month after a brief hiatus last year.
This year’s Firkin Freezeout celebration will be held Feb. 19 at the Grand Rapids taproom and, for the first year ever, at the Founders Detroit location.
The Grand Rapids Freezeout, hosted in the brewery’s beer garden, will feature a variety of 24 firkins — small, unique casks with specialty brews — allowing attendees to sample a wide variety of Founders’ creations, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Detroit location will serve brews from eight firkins from 11 a.m. until sold out.
Both taprooms will offer food specials, including Chef Eddie’s award-winning chili in Grand Rapids and Chef Jason’s recipe in Detroit, Founders’ house bratwurst chili, white chicken chili, and a vegan option.
This event is free to attend, and children are welcome.
