Founders Brewing Announces Philly Beer Week Lineup

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Founders Brewing Co. announced their lineup of Philly Beer Week 2014 events today, including an All-Star Road Show event on Sunday, June 1, from 4-11pm at World Cafe Live. “All-Star” refers to both the draft lineup and the FBC All-Stars, the official brewery band, who will be playing a live show that evening.

The All-Star draft lineup for the Road Show will include Founders specialty and Backstage Series releases, a couple taproom one-offs never before on draft outside of the Founders taproom in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and some surprises. There will be 18 beers on tap.

Workout Brooklyn will open the night followed by the FBC All-Stars—a super group made up of the brewery’s finest musicians (including brewers, the production planning manager, warehouse manager, deli manager, taproom manager, two bartenders, and a cook)—for an entertaining evening of music and beer.

Tickets are $10/ea with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Live Connections. They can be purchased here beginning on Friday, April 18, at 10am EDT:

The All-Star Road Show official after party will start at 11pm at BRU Craft & Wurst.
