Founders Brewing Co. continues to make power moves around the country. In early March, Founders Brewing announced a big distribution deal in Texas. Two weeks ago, the brewery announced plans to can its first beer — All Day IPA. Now, Founders Brewing announced it is expanding its distribution territory to include the Sunshine State, with Brown Distributing slated to represent the brand across the entire state of Florida beginning in May.
“Florida has grown tremendously in terms of craft beer savvy and awareness in the past couple of years,” said Co-Founder and 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.
