New Belgium Brewing

It all began with Fat Tire, named in honor of a bike trip through Europe. Inspired by Belgian beers that use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles, the co-founder traveled around sampling home brews to the public. Today with breweries in Colorado and North Carolina, New Belgium Brewing is 100 percent employee-owned with a line up of award winning brews and serious environmental commitment. Fat Tire: Pairs well with people.
