New Belgium Brewing Co. last week announced it's expanding into Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. So where does that leave Ohio? "Unfortunately, we aren't quite ready to begin distribution to Ohio," spokeswoman Tiffany Connor said in an email. She went on to say that the company is looking into expanding its brewing facilities to produce more beer. "This would eventually enable us to fully expand across the country," she said. "Hopefully one day soon, Ohioans will be able to purchase New Belgium beer at their favorite corner market. We appreciate everyone's patience." New Belgium, based in Fort Collins, Colo., makes such brands as Fat Tire, 1554 and Abbey. It's the third-largest craft brewer in the U.S. and the seventh overall, according to the Brewers Association.
