Founders Beer Distributed in Florida

We’ve [finally] announced today that we are expanding our distribution territory to include the Sunshine State, with Brown Distributing slated to represent our brand across the entire state of Florida (yes, the whole state) beginning in May.

“Florida has grown tremendously in terms of craft beer savvy and awareness in the past couple of years,” said Co-Founder & CEO Mike Stevens. “Beer enthusiasts have raised the bar in the state, and we’re looking forward to getting our beer to them.”

“It is their radical approach to brewing and passion for quality that makes us so fired up to bring Founders products to Florida,” said Ian Salzberg, Senior Marketing Manager with Brown Distributing.

Floridians can expect to find Founders’ year-round and seasonal products, both in bottles and on draft, in the first shipment, which is expected to land in mid- to late May. Specialty releases will follow the brewery’s release schedule from there.

    With you distributing to nearly every state surrounding TN and the main routes going from GR to the more southern states going through TN, why are you not distributing in TN? What is keeping you from doing business in TN?

    While I can sometimes get Centennial IPA and Breakfast Stout by driving 55 miles (one way) to KY many times they don’t have any of your beers even though I’ve called ahead. Why can’t I get Founders in TN?

      We have not opened up distribution in TN yet, but we are doing research on TN as a potential market. We appreciate your patience and dedication (55 miles one way!).

    SO excited to hear this! I have been craving Founders beer ever since I had a breakfast stout in Minnesota last year with my brother! However, I don’t know if I can wait until May… I might need to buy a plane ticket to visit my brother again before then! Thank you for bringing your WONDERFUL beer to Florida!
