New Market Announcement: Pacific Northwest

We are humbled and honored to announce that we will be bringing our beer to a long-admired craft beer mecca, the Pacific Northwest states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho! It was westward that our Co-Founders traveled in their discovery of craft beer some 25 years ago and we’ve long anticipated the day that our beers would be available in this region.


With the help of the Great Artisan Beverage (GAB) network of wholesalers, residents of these fine states can expect to see our year-round, seasonal and specialty beers in bottles, cans (as applicable) and kegs beginning in January with our Washington launch. Select limited release beers may also be available at craft retailers following the launch. Idaho and Oregon will be right behind Washington with beer hitting shelves in February.

With a launch this epic you can be sure that we will be hosting some awesome events. Washingtonians can expect launch events in the Seattle area January 10-12. Stay tuned to our events page for more information regarding launch events in Oregon and Idaho.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for more information.

To see all the states where we are available and to find beer in your area, check out our beer finder. Note that new markets may take up to 60 days to show up on the beer finder.

Pacific Northwest, we will see you soon!

    Can’t wait. I partake of your beer every time I’m in MI.
    Love it.

      We can’t wait either… it’s been a long time coming. Thanks for the support!

    Right on!! Tremendous news!! I’m a native Western Michigander… moved out here about 5 years ago, and I’m constantly raving about Founders to my PNW friends out here. Man, I’m so looking forward to exposing them to the liquid gold you guys produce, plus getting a little piece of something that reminds me of home.

      The best part of expanding is hearing from people like you! Nothing like reminders of home, especially when those reminders are in beer form. Thanks so much for the support, cheers!

    Terrific news! TSA will get a break from harassing my checked in luggage now. Get ready, Seattle!

      Glad to make your travel just a little bit easier. We’ll see you soon!

    Oregon can’t wait to get ahold of some Red’s Rye!

    Fantastic! I’ve been talking up Founders since I moved to Oregon a couple of years ago. Though I’ve found Founders beer on tap here occasionally, I’m glad to hear that my uninitiated friends here will soon be able to easily find out what I’ve been on about! (And, of course, I’ll once again be able to compliment my homebrew with authentic bottles of many of the beers that inspired my interest in brewing in the first place. If I’ll be able to get the real thing again, perhaps I’ll be able to give my Founders Porter clone recipe a rest to brew something else!)
    Looking forward to February!

      That is fantastic to hear! Our Co-Founders began as avid homebrewers themselves, so it is something else to hear that the beers we create now are inspiring to other homebrewers. We will see you soon!

    Thank you! I was thinking that I was going to have to move back to get some decent stout.

    • Founders Brewing Co.

      Nope! We figured it would be easier on all of us if we just came to you.
