Founder's Brewing Will Distribute Its Craft Beers in Miami Beginning August 19

Craft beer drinkers in Miami are known to love variety in their brew selection, which is why they should be pleased to know that Founder's Brewing is making its way to stores and bar taps around town beginning August 19.

The rollout includes All Day IPA, Centennial IPA, Dry Hopped pale ale, and Dirty Bastard Scotch ale and will come in taps and 12-ounce bottles and six-packs. No word on special releases, but they will more than likely come now that Founder's has established a market in Florida.

Distribution begins August 19 but the real celebration is on October 4, or Founder's Friday, at Miami bars where Founder's beer is sold on tap.

For Miami's true cerveza fanatics, new product availability is cause for celebration. Sure, Miami is blessed with a wide variety of commercially available brews at area stores, but not all craft breweries in America sell their product here.

The Grand Rapids brewery got all us all excited in April when it announced its products would head to Florida. The rollout was possible because of a brewery expansion, but the installation of several new pieces of equipment delayed the start date.

Brown Distributing Company is handling the Founder's release for not onlyl South Florida, but the entire state. They serve more than 300 accounts across South Florida, many of them in Miami. Check your local watering hole or retail location to find out if they carry Founder's brew.

We can't list all of the locations carrying Founder's because there are simply too many, but here is a short list of either taps or bottles:
