founders_logoI don’t know how many of you participated in the Bringing Breweries to St. Louis, but I’m hoping it’s quite a few.  It doesn’t take much to sit down a write out a couple of sentences to a brewery letting them know how interested and exicted you are to have their product.  Well, it looks like we have another prime opportunity to bring a top tier brewery to Missouri.  Paul Hayden of The Wine and Cheese Place recently email Founder’s Brewery and received this response:

“You may have just moved Missouri to a top tier opportunity state for Founders.” — Michael Bell, Director of Sales at Founders

Maybe it’s just talk, but to me that sounds like the brewery on the edge of looking for a distributor.  So, now it’s our turn to push them over the edge.  Send an email to Michael, letting him know how much you enjoy Founder’s products and how much you’d love to see them in St. Louis.  And for all of those who don’t know what to say, it can be as simple as this:

Dear Michael,

I want to send you an email to let you know just how much I enjoy Founder’s beer.  I’ve always found that you guys produced some of the best beer in the Midwest, if not the United States.  I’m currently located in St. Louis, Missouri and while Founder’s products are attainable in Southern Illinois, I sometimes have an issue finding your product.  While I appreciate patronizing my Southern Illinois vendors, sometimes I’d love a Red’s Rye on this side of the river as well!  St. Louis and Kansas City both have rich beer history and your product would only help to continue that image.  Please consider coming to Missouri soon!

Sincerely,

STL Hops Reader.
