New Belgium Brewing Brewery Tour

Taking the New Belgium Brewing company brewery tour has always been one of my favorite things to do in Fort Collins, Colorado

After a lovely time at the Butterfly Pavilion, we made our way to another one of my favorite stops in Colorado: the New Belgium Brewing Company for the brewery tour.

Nestled in the picturesque city of Fort Collins, Colorado, New Belgium Brewing Company stands as a beacon of craft beer excellence and sustainable practices. Founded in 1991 by Jeff Lebesch and Kim Jordan, this brewery’s story is a testament to the American craft beer revolution.

What began as a homebrewing passion evolved into a full-fledged brewery with the creation of Fat Tire Amber Ale, a Belgian-style beer that is one of my favorites.

As I stepped into New Belgium’s vibrant taproom, I was immediately struck by its lively atmosphere and commitment to environmental stewardship.

The walls adorned with cycling memorabilia, a nod to the brewery’s love for bikes and sustainability, spoke volumes about their values.

In 2012, New Belgium made waves by transitioning to a 100% employee-owned model through an ESOP, ensuring that every pint poured represented a collective effort and shared success.

In 2019, New Belgium Brewing was bought out by Lion Little World Beverages. Luckily, after the sale, they weren’t gutted like Ballast Point Brewing.

Today, visitors can tour the brewery’s state-of-the-art facilities, learn about their innovative brewing techniques, and savor a diverse range of beers that reflect New Belgium’s passion for quality and sustainability.

A visit to New Belgium Brewing is not just a beer tasting experience; it’s a journey through the history of craft brewing, community engagement, and environmental consciousness.

Tickets for the tour are given out on a first come, first served basis. There are 20 tickets available for each tour. Tours are once a day at 4:00pm Monday-Friday and 2:00pm and 4:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
