    New Belgium is Awesome!

    Not just the beer, but how the company is so supportive of bicycles. I just got back from the Tour de Fat and it was an amazing event. New Belgium did an awesome job putting it on and I bet put some serious money into making things happen. They've also sponsored some smaller events in my area.
    I often buy local brews and like to mix it up, but if I'm torn next time on what to get, I'll now be more likely to reach for a Ranger, Fat Tire, or Skinny Dip

    Have you been to the brewery? The tour is fantastic. The entire place is bicycle heaven, the Company is a Co-op, meaning employee owned. Would be a fantastic place to work I think.
    Ride Bikes, Drink Craft Beer, Repeat.

    I haven't been to Ft. Collins but they're building a brewery in Asheville that looks awesome. looks like they're also sponsoring events out there for more greenways and I'm sure other things.

    If you like the Ranger IPA, you should totally try the Slow Ride IPA, too! Both delish!

    The New Belgium beers are good but their "Rampant" is on a higher level IMO!

    During the season their "Pumpkick" is one of the better pumpkin beers.

    NBB is good, but they're like the fourth or fifth best brewery in FoCo.

    True story! I reach for something from Odell most days before something from New Belgium, but Rampant is a damn good beer. I'm spoiled though, as they're all within riding distance.

    I became a fan back in 95/96 when i moved from NJ to CO to work at Arapahoe Basin/Keystone resorts as a snowboard dumb all us employees drank Fat Tire or Breck beer. BTW thats when I got in to Mntbikini.
    EDIT: if you worked out there back then shoot me a PM I lost a lot of friends that I would like to catch up with.

    Working for New Belgium is a highly sought after position! I remember touring the FoCo brewery years back and they had ping-pong tables, rock climbing walls, and slides in their break room! They are also allowed up to 2 beers/day while working and are given a 12-pack/week. After 1 year of service, employees receive one of those New Belgium cruisers and after 5 years they get a trip to Belgium. I'd work there for the benefits alone!
