We’re Headed West: To Arizona

We’re headed west! We’re expanding our distribution territory to include the Grand Canyon State, with Hensley & Company slated to represent our brand across the entire state of Arizona beginning in April.


“Arizona is our first truly western state of distribution,” said Co-Founder and CEO Mike Stevens. “There are a lot of Michigan natives in Arizona, and it’s a state with a developing craft beer scene, so it made sense for us to open it this spring.”

Residents of Arizona can expect to find our year-round and seasonal products, both in bottles and on draft, in the first shipment. The launch is set for the week of April 21. Specialty releases will follow our release schedule from there.

To recap, we’re opening five new states in April, including Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana in addition to Arizona, bringing our total distribution footprint to 32 states. Here’s our updated distribution map:

  10. Matthew Smith

    I’m glad to see “the entire state” as we love Founders in Tucson! I was just considering driving to Texas to pick some up, so I’m glad to save the gas money for beer money.

    • Rob

      Thank you Sarah! We’ve heard availability of year-round and seasonals right away. Your calendar shows Curmudgeon and KBS being out about now – any chance of those making their way to AZ for launch?

    • Sarah

      Maybe very small amounts of KBS. Curmudgeon should make it at some point, though perhaps not in the first shipment.
