We couldn’t think of a better way to jumpstart our 2016 schedule of summer events than a night at Founders Brewing Co. This past Friday, despite cold and rainy weather, alumni and friends had a great time at the annual Alumni Summer Kick-Off in the exclusive Centennial Room at Founders Brewing Co. Alumni toured the brewing facilities with the Founder’s Educational Department and tasted four newly released beers. Delicious house-made beer cheese and hummus was served as alumni mixed, mingled, and networked with fellow Panthers. View photos from the event on the DU Alumni Facebook page.
