Wow, this was a great tour! Our tour guide Sarah was very energetic and knowledgeable on the brewery. Enjoyed her very much! We toured all through the brewery and had five samples along the way. They were very generous samples too! Learned a lot on the history of the business and the brewing process. Very interesting to learn about while sipping on their finest. Highly recommend this tour for anyone in the Denver area. Was only about an hour away from the Denver area. I also recommend hitting up some of the other breweries in town and make a day of it!

We took the new Belgium tour in late February on our visit to denver. It was just a short drive north to ft. Collins with a beautiful scenic view! The tour is free but you need to call and make reservations ahead of time because this place is pretty busy. The tour lasts about 1 1/2 hours and you will have a beer in your hand the entire time! Our tour operator wa fantastic although his name has slipped my mind. At the end of your tour, if you have filled out their online survey, will reward you with a free gift. Mine ended up being a free growler of their sunshine wheat beer! Yummy! Definitely worth the drive!!

My husband has wanted to do a brewery tour the past few times we've visited Colorado, and it never worked out. This time, we took advantage of our free morning and visited New Belgium Brewing. Luckily, we'd booked reservations for the tour a few weeks ago; it was full. Our tour guide was very fun and informative. The tour was relaxed and entertaining, and the beer excellent. We had five samples over the 90- minute tour, and really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend!

I love New Belgium! The taproom is a great place to try a variety of standard and very unique beers. The tour is also very fun and informative! I lived in Fort Collins for awhile, and so took the tour 5 or 6 times - each time was different and enjoyable! If you have a bit of time on your hands, and didn't sign up for the tour online, you can stop by the tour desk and put your name on a waiting list. They start new tours every 15 or 30 minutes, and so chances are, you will be able to get on one of the tours. (I've never reserved tickets online).

After you've visited New Belgium, make sure to check out Odell's and Equinox too. They are also delicious Fort Collins Breweries!

Note on the fee: the tour is free and includes 5 tasters of beer. If you would like beer in the taproom, you must pay for it.

My wife and I took the New Belgium Brewery tour on a Tuesday, and had a fun time. Our tour guide had been doing tours for eight years, and he was very passionate about his job and the brewery. We had five samples over the ninety minute tour, which finished up with the opportunity to slide down a slide - that's definitely not on the Coors tour. Very enjoyable time - I would recommend it if you are in the Fort Collins area. Make reservations.
