The Delaware-based brewery announced today that it will start a soft rollout into Tennessee with Memphis and Chattanooga up first. Dogfish Head will team with Budweiser of Memphis and Carter Distributing in Chattanooga to restart distribution in Tennessee.
Dogfish Head had announced in June 2013 that it was returning to Tennessee, but no more details had been announced until now.
Here’s more from Dogfish Head:
Tennessee, here we come!
Since last summer, when we announced that Dogfish was headed back to the four states we pulled out of in 2011, we’ve been grateful for all of the anticipation, kind words and patience from the craft beer community. Today, for all of the Dogfish fans in Tennessee, we can finally say … we’re back!
We’re starting a soft rollout into Tennessee with Memphis and Chattanooga, with our eye on filling out the state in the coming months.
“We did a ton of research before moving forward to come back to Tennessee,” says Dogfish Head Founder and President Sam Calagione. “We wanted to make sure we had the right partners, and I’m excited that we’ll be working with Bud of Memphis and Carter Distributing in Chattanooga.”
To find Dogfish Head beers in your area, try the Fish Finder at dogfish.com. You can search by beer and by ZIP code, and the Fish Finder will tell you where shipments have dropped in the past 60 days. Our trucks bound for Tennessee are leaving Delaware this week, beer should be appearing on shelves and taps in Memphis & Chatanooga (and the Fish Finder) over the next few weeks.
Dogfish Head is also now back in Rhode Island and parts of Indiana and Wisconsin. We are still working hard to find the right partners to fill out Indiana and Wisconsin and expect to be statewide in both in the coming months.
Thank you for all of your patience and support!
