“Wonderful Brewery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

New Beligum beers put Fort Collins on the map in terms of micro-brewing. They have expanded to be available in almost every state now. Fun place, always crowded. It is a jewel along the front range

“My favorite brewery tour, hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Fort Collins is an up and coming town in northern Colorado with 7 breweries and 2 new ones scheduled to be built this year. Downtown Fort Collins has college type atmosphere with various activities for all walks of life. Now the brewery is one of three (others are Odell and Fort Collins Brewery) in the immediate area and since I had limited time to explore different activities in the area I chose New Belgium since I have been drinking their beers for years and was interested in the history behind the beer. The brewery is very modern as you might expect from a newer brewing company and facilitates tours better than other tours I've been on (Miller, various microbrews, etc.) The tour is about an hour long and explores the more popular beers like fat tire and seasonals. They also have a section of the tour for "sour" beers which are ok but quite different and not for everyone, but hey, its free beer and well worth the visit. There is a gift shop near the bar where you can purchase various swag for your return trip home. Enjoy!

“Excellent Beer, Great Information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Really enjoyed this tour. Very informative about the entire beer making process from the beginning of the company to the present day. Sounds like a wonderful place to work, as one of their core values is "have fun." The tour provided much fun! There is a great surprise at the end of the tour which made me feel like a kid again!
