FOUNDERS BREWING CO. EXPANDS DISTRIBUTION TO LOUISIANA
Founders Beer Will Be Available in The Pelican State in April 2013
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 3, 2013 - Founders Brewing Co. announced today that it is expanding its distribution territory to include the Pelican State, with Buquet Distributing, Schilling Distributing, Mockler Beverage, Southern Eagle Sales & Service, Champagne Beverage and Southwest Beverage slated to represent the brand across the entire state of Louisiana beginning in April.
“We haven’t been talking about Louisiana distribution for all that long,” said Co-Founder and CEO Mike Stevens, “but when we started looking at the craft beer scene there, we realized it was a great fit for us. Louisiana is part of a new region for us that we’re calling the South Central region. It includes Texas, which we opened last year, as well as Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, which we’re opening all at once.”
Residents of Louisiana can expect to find Founders’ year-round and seasonal products, both in bottles and on draft, in the first shipment. Specialty releases will follow the brewery’s release schedule from there.
The addition of Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana to Founders’ markets brings the brewery’s total distribution footprint to 30 states. For a list of all the states in which Founders is available and the brewery’s 2014 availability calendar, visit foundersbrewing.com.
