PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. - Beer lovers in South Florida are rejoicing.

New Belgium Beer Company's Fat Tire was finally on store shelves in South Florida on Monday.

Local 10 confirmed with Total Wine in Pembroke Pines that they are now carrying Fat Tire amber ale.

New Belgium is first sending its core brands to Florida, including Fat Tire, Ranger and 1554.

"Florida will be our 32nd state of distribution and it's probably the one we've heard from most often about, ‘when are you all going get here?'" said New Belgium Florida Sales Director Jeff Sipes in a news release. "A lot of us have friends and family in state so it's a bit of a homecoming that way. We're excited."
