I've been on a few brewery tours and New Belgium is one of the best. The tour does an excellent job of combining company history, beer knowledge, brewing processes and equipment, and lots of samples in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. I was really happy to see that the samples ranged from some of their staples (like Fat Tire) to... More

Caters mostly to tourists, but very well organized and informative. Our female tour guide was absolutely amazing and seemed very genuine in her appreciation for New Belgium. Lots of samples and a great tasting room. I love Ranger!

If you can get on the tour it is well worth the planning!! We managed to get onto the tour from the waiting list. The tour lasts between and hour and an hour and half. It's very interesting and you get to drink quite a bit of beer! I would definitely recommend adding this to your trip if you are... More

Quick reference: 1. Kids are allowed, but they likely will be bored 2. Make reservations well in advance 3. If dropping in, tell the check-in host that you would like to be on the standby list 4. The equivalent of several beers is served - maybe a designated driver 5. Parking is a problem - we found a side street... More

We loved every moment of this experience. We came fans, and left die-hards. The 90-minute tour was fabulous. The grounds beautiful. The beer superb. The tour ends with a trip down a swirly slide! The tasting room was great, but very crowed. They have a small gift-shop with a good variety. One of my favorite aspects was the complimentary post... More

Went on this tour in July, but made our reservations 2 months prior due to its extreme popularity So be warned, if you are thinking about it. 20 can go on each tour. We have been on many brewery tours, but this one was the BEST by far. Not only do you get samplings all through the tour, and see... More

I'm a huge fan if the beers and often order them for my own keg at home but when I went to visit the actual brewery, I couldn't even find a place to sit. The bartender told me to just squeeze in somewhere but I found it way too busy.

Ok first off, Loved the PEACH PORCH yum yum! Great brew! Also we didn't do the tour because it's sold out like months before, so beware of that! Anyway, we just 'stopped' in for a taster, and fun!! They have a tiny little self-guided tour around the side for free if you want, and you can "call-in" and get voice... More

Be warned: you need to book your tour well in advance due to popularity. There's no wonder the tour is popular. You get beer tastings and fun stories along the way. The tour guide did a great job and was very funny. It's a relaxed environment, which is nice. You even get to end the tour going down a slide... More
