It’s been a rainy, humid summer so far on the East Coast, so I'm wishing for several weeks of the 90-degree weather which causes me to crave one drink in particular: the shandy.

It’s pretty incredible to imagine that Founders Brewing Company, which moved to its new digs in Grand Rapids, MI, in 2008, nearly tanked. According to co-founders Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers, the company's success primarily involved making beer that no one initially thought would sell.
