    Founders doesn’t make a “class 1” beer. They make over-hopped, over-sweet swill for the masses who wouldn’t recognize well-crafted beer if you poured it on them.
    Founders is to beer what bubblegum-flavored vodka is to liquor.

    Seriously, this is almost as stupid a PR effort as the t-shirt thing was.
    Good thing GR is full of gullible sheep, Founders will make a fortune.
