New Markets: Montana

Hi friends,

Our westward expansion continues with distribution to the great state of Montana!

This one is near and dear to our Co-Founder and CEO, Mike Stevens, whose annual trout camp takes place in beautiful Montana.

“Having been a two-bit fly-fishing guide in my previous life, it makes me damn proud that I can now purchase Founders beer in a place that, in a lot of ways, represents that past. Now, I might even be able to convince Dave [Co-Founder and President] to join me the next time around,” Mike says.

With the help of the Great Artisan Beverage Montana network of distributors: Summit Beverage, Cardinal Distributing, Fun Beverage, Gusto Beverage and Briggs Distributing, our beer will be available in all major markets throughout the state beginning on April 1. That’s right, our year-round, seasonal and specialty beers will be available in bottles, cans (as applicable) and kegs with select limited release beers available after the launch.

Montana is the 43rd state we are in… only seven left to go! 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 including Montana may take up to 60 days to show up on the beer finder.


Launch events will take place the week of April 10. For more information regarding where and when, visit us at or follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

      We are so pumped to be there! Unfortunately, KBS will not be making it out this year although it may be on tap at launch events. Stay tuned to for details on those. Rest assured, it will be out your way next year.
