Founders Brewing Co. has partnered with General Distributing out of Salt Lake City and Wasatch Distributing out of Ogden to bring their lineup to Utah. Founders will be sending products to select Utah State Liquor Stores as early as July 2019.

“We’re very excited to launch Utah as our 49th state of distribution and look forward to partnering with two excellent wholesalers, General and Wasatch Distributors,” said CEO and Co-Founder Mike Stevens. “For years, craft beer enthusiasts have been asking us to bring them Founders and, with the recent changes made by the state legislature to increase allowable ABVs to 5%, that time has come. Founders is a perfect fit for Utah’s recreational climate and gives us more reason to spend time in such a beautiful state.”

“The team at General Distributing is excited that Founders Brewing is coming to Utah and honored to have been chosen to distribute their fine portfolio of award-winning craft beers,” said General Distributing President, Andy Zweber. “We can’t wait to start this partnership and let the beer drinkers of Utah see what they’ve been missing!”

The Utah state legislature recently passed SB132, which increases the state cap on retail beer to 5% ABV. Since Founders produces a number of sub-5% ABV beers, including the immensely popular All Day IPA, Utahns will be able to find this brand (and more) in grocery and convenience stores, in addition to draft at on-premise retail accounts, beginning November 1st.

Utah is the 49th state to see Founders’ distribution, leaving only Hawaii left to complete total US distribution. To check out all of the states in which Founders is available, and to review information on the Founders lineup and release calendar, visit foundersbrewing.com.
