    • Sarah

      Fixed, thank you!

    • Nate

      Why would you distribute to Texas when you can’t even take care of your Michigan customers?

    • Sarah

      We can and do take care of our Michigan customers. If you’re a customer having an issue, please email us and we’ll work through it together: info AT foundersbrewing DOT com.

    Any chances of moving west to El Paso?

    • Sarah

      Our distributor partner, Ben E. Keith, does cover El Paso. They are best able to answer your questions about distribution in your area–please feel free to give them a call at (214) 634-1500. Cheers!

    Are we going to see Double Trouble in Texas? I don’t see it on the TABC database 🙁

    • Sarah

      Double Trouble is our May-June specialty release this year, so there’s a chance. Stay tuned!

    Oh, this is wonderful. Please tell me we’ll get some Curmudgeon!!! I don’t care if it’s draft or bottled — I’d burn cities to the ground for some fresh Curmudgeon. I’m not even going to ask about the KBS, but that gorgeous Old Ale of yours would do.

    I’m at a loss for words as to how happy I am that Founders finally made it to Texas. You guys are the best. If you’d asked me, one year ago, which brewery I wanted to have in our state, I wouldn’t have said De Struise or Bell’s or Westvleteren or Russian River (though I really like them all). I would have said Founders.

    • Sarah

      Thanks for the kind words, Andres. We’re excited to get our beer to Texas for the first time. We did send a very small amount of Curmudgeon Old Ale to Texas, so be on the lookout.

    Does the same distributor mentioned for El Paso also cover Lubbock?

    • Sarah

      Yup–Ben E. Keith covers the entire state for us.

  7. Luke

    Please find your way to Waco soon!

    • Brandon

      So pumped you are coming here! This state needs some solid breweries like yours. I’m from PA and have been spoiled. Texas is very restrictive on bringing new labels/companies in. Best of luck.

  8. Dave

    I excitedly headed to Mellow Mushroom in Denton today only to discover they had no idea what I was talking about when I mentioned Founders. Any news on this front?

    • Sarah

      It sounds like they will be getting our beer soon, but weren’t able to get it this week. Sorry for the inconvenience–we always recommend calling ahead to retailers just in case. We appreciate your support and your efforts to welcome us into Texas!

    Is Doom coming to the Dallas-Plano area?

    • Sarah

      Please call our distributor partner, Ben E. Keith, for information: (214) 634-1500

    Hello, I’m not sure if you’re gluten free. Anyway, we live in a Houston suburb & was wondering if you have a list of places north of the city, say the Navasota area? Thanks very much & have a great day.

    Best regards

    • Sarah

      Hi Patti–Our beers are not gluten free. And we ask that you call our distributor partner, Ben E. Keith, for more information on where to find our beer in your neighborhood: (214) 634-1500. Cheers!
