Founders Beer Will Be Available in the Grand Canyon State in April 2014
(Hensley, CA) – Founders Brewing Co. announced today that it is expanding its distribution territory to include the Grand Canyon State, with Hensley & Company slated to represent the 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 Founders’ 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 the brewery’s release schedule from there.
Founders is opening five new states in April, including Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana in addition to Arizona, bringing the brewery’s total distribution footprint to 32 states.
