Dogfish Head Returns to Tennessee, Leaves Out Nashville

Last June, Dogfish Head announced plans to begin distributing to Tennessee after a hiatus since 2011, when the brewery pulled from numerous states including the Volunteer State.  Founder, Sam Colagione stated, "It wasn’t our goal to upset Dogfish Head fans and distributors, but with demand so far in front of supply, we just couldn’t brew enough beer. We were left with a choice: leave shelves empty and frustrate beer enthusiasts everywhere, or stay true to our off-centered roots, pull back, and focus on strong, smart growth."

Today, via their company blog, it was announced that Dogfish will begin showing up on shelves over the next few weeks in Tennessee, beginning with Memphis and Chattanooga.  Calagione stated, “We did a ton of research before moving forward to come back to Tennessee ... 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.”

"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!"

  1. Come on, already!

    Hearing this is better than the silence we've had from DFH the past several months but I'm ready to have a 90-Minute on my porch that I didn't have to travel to buy.

    Any ideas on why Nashville isn't part of the "soft rollout?"
