As of Monday, New Belgium beer is officially available throughout the state of Ohio.

Though a few distributors let it slide last week, you can get it everywhere now. Better yet Ranger, Fat Tire, and Triple are all $2.99 a bomber.

In addition to the locations listed below, Arnold's Bar and Grill (at 210 E. Eighth Street) is having an official keg tapping to celebrate at 5 p.m.

The tapping will be preceded by a bike parade that starts at Fountain Square at 4:30 p.m. Arnold's staff said the New Belgium keg will be delivered by bicyclists as New Belgium has a long-standing tradition of supporting the biking community.

The first 100 people to buy a pint will get a numbered, sealed and hand-signed certificate signifying they were one of the first in Ohio to drink the beer.

New Belgium representatives will also be on hand to talk about the beer and hand out memorabilia.
