Spanning over 6 generations and almost twice as many brewers, Founders has been brewing beer in Nelson for almost 160 years.

During this exciting period of global innovation our great-great-great-grandad, great uncles, uncles, and father were all at the forefront of brewing innovation, or as we call it “Brewervation”.

Our beer is a celebration of that innovation, both in and out of the brewery. We recognise that sometimes the ideas that don’t work are just as important as those that do and without that innovative spirit we’d be without many of the things we have today.
