Founders Brewing Co. has announced that they have partnered with multiple distributors statewide to bring their year-round, seasonal, specialty and Barrel-Aged Series beers in bottles, cans (as applicable) and kegs to Colorado beginning in October 2018.
Beer will start shipping in October, with the retail release beginning later that month. Launch events will take place towards the end of October – more details to come.
“We started this journey 21 years ago largely inspired by the craft pioneers out West in places like Colorado, California and Oregon,” said Founders’ Co-Founder and CEO, Mike Stevens. “Ever since we started distributing outside of Michigan, we’ve had our eye on getting into Colorado. It may have a competitive market, but the Colorado craft fans are passionate, adventurous and have been very vocal in petitioning for our availability. We’re pumped to finally make it happen.”
Colorado is the 47th state to see Founders’ distribution, leaving only Wyoming, Utah and Hawaii left to complete total US distribution.
Established in 1997 by two craft beer enthusiasts—Dave Engbers and Mike Stevens—with day jobs and a dream, Founders Brewing Co. brews complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics and tons of flavor. Founders ranks among the top 10 largest craft breweries in the U.S. and is one of the fastest growing. The brewery has received numerous awards from the World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival and BeerAdvocate users often rate its beers among the best in the world. Located in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, Founders is a proud member of the Michigan Brewers Guild.
