Kentucky fans of New Belgium Brewing Co. no longer have to cross the border into Indiana, Ohio or Tennessee. Starting March 2, New Belgium Brewing will begin distributing in Kentucky, expanding the brewery’s distribution to 38 states. New Belgium will offer the brewery’s flagship beer Fat Tire, along with year-round releases Ranger IPA, Slow Ride Session IPA and Snapshot Wheat on draft and in 12-ounce bottles. Seasonal releases, along with Rampant Imperial IPA, Trippel Belgian-Style Ale and New Belgium’s variety packs will also be available in 12-ounce packages.
“We’ve been eyeing Kentucky for quite awhile, so it’s exciting to officially open up the state,” said New Belgium Brewing’s Sales Co-Pilot Brian Krueger. “The glory of college basketball is upon us and the Derby isn’t too far off, so we’re arriving at a pretty fun time in the state.”
