Founders Brewing Co. has announced that they have partnered with Odom Hawaii — of the Odom Group and the GAB network of wholesalers — to bring their beer to the Aloha State.
This marks the 50th state of distribution and successfully completes nationwide coverage for the 22-year-old brewery. Customers can expect to see select releases in draft and cans (as applicable) of All Day IPA, Solid Gold, Rubaeus and Breakfast Stout as early as the end of July.
“My partner Dave and I are very excited to announce that Founders will be heading to Hawaii!” said CEO and Co-Founder Mike Stevens. “It’s always a special time whenever we add a state of distribution and the fact that Hawaii is our 50th state makes it all the more worthy of celebration. It’s long been a dream of ours to see our beer across the US, and the fact that 22+ years later we’ve accomplished this is a testament to our Founders team and our amazing wholesaler partners. Tonight, we raise a glass to the Aloha state and thank everyone throughout America who’s helped us get to where we are today.”
Launch events will be taking place as soon as the end of the month.
