What dialect is それはねぇべ (それはないだろう)?

It seems I hear it a lot from people from Chiba. Is it from a specific part of Chiba or even a wider area?

    It doesn't mean それはないよ but それはないだろう.

It's widely used in Kanto and Tohoku regions to a varying degree. Stereotyped Tohoku dialect uses っぺ instead of べ(ー), though.
