We are pleased to announce that we are now distributing beers by Foolproof Brewing out of Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Launched in January 2013, Foolproof is one of the newest craft breweries in Rhode Island. In addition to Portland, Maine, Foolproof's beers are also distributed statewide in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, and New Hampshire.
"We are so excited to be introducing Foolproof's beers to one of the most renowned craft beer markets in the country," said Nick Garrison, Foolproof's president and founder. "Partnering with National's experienced and reputable team, we look forward to introducing the Foolproof brand to beer lovers in Maine."
Foolproof produces five year-round beers, which are available in draft and 12 oz. can format. These year-round offerings include Barstool American golden ale, Raincloud robust porter, Backyahd IPA, La Ferme Urbaine (LFU) farmhouse ale, and King of the Yahd imperial IPA. The brewery also produces a line of rotating specialty beers, including Peanut Butter Raincloud porter, Augtoberfest fest bier, Revery Russian imperial stout, and Shuckolate chocolate-oyster stout that are available in draft and cans.
Although Foolproof is a relatively new brewery, they have already gotten some nice accolades in the beer world. Barstool American Golden Ale was the 2013 Gold winner at the Great International Beer Festival. Backyahd and La Ferme Urbaine have also received silver medal awards at GIBF in 2013 and 2014, respectively. La Ferme Urbaine has also been recognized by Men's Journal as one of the 101 Best Beers in America.
We will be getting inventory for Foolproof in the next few weeks. Ask your sales rep to find out more about this great brand. It's a 'foolproof' choice...
