  • 90 minute tour - Eric was our guide and was fantastic, showing enthusiasm for all the aspects of the company including the history, brewing process, beers and the company culture. Highly recommended!  more »
  • We had visited New Belgium brewing on a late Saturday morning while on a road trip. Parking on the street was a bit full, so we parked in a lot across the street that was labelled for visitors. There ...  more »
  • Fun place. Went on a Friday evening. Outside music, games, food trucks and great beer. Would highly recommend swinging by and checking this place out. Can get busy, but the price is reasonable.  more »

  • I put New Belgium on my list of top places to visit while in Denver. I was really bummed out that the tours were booked because I really wanted to see the foeder area. One of the serving staff brought me back personally.  It was truly awesome experience. While in the foeder area, I got to meet Lauren Salazar (if you don't know who she is, you should. She's completely awesome!) who is one of my brewing idols. From what I was told, most of the staff at this brewery are volunteers and own a share of the company. All of the staff is super friendly and awesome. The vibe I got from this brewery was very relaxed and everything was very laid back. Lots of beer on great beer on tap. There is usually a food truck outside with great food. Plenty of spots outside and yard games to play. You need to visit here. It's worth it!
  • Although I want to give it a 4.5 because I'm not a big fan of Belgian style beer, I gave them a 5 because they have lots of other beer that should satisfy the palate of any beer drinker. They give the best tours (5 samples!) and the company is profit shared whereas all the employees own a piece of New Belgium. That's progressive. The beer is great, too. I can never get enough of what is on tap.
  • Wonderful Fort Collins brewery! Their taproom and outdoor spaces are well kept and provide lots of room for socialization. When I was there, they had a Mac and Cheese food cart to purchase food from and lawn games. They are dog friendly. The beers are good and getting a flight was a nice way to try some of the classics with some of their more experimental stuff.
  • Best brewery tour I've ever been on!!! Mindy was our guide and she was so much fun-she had great energy and was full of information! Everyone was really friendly there isn't any food served-but there was a delicious food truck on site. Can't wait to come back to New Belgium!
  • I love it here! But only for a few reasons. Their shakes are amazing. In fact after trying a few meals, the shakes are the only things I get that seem worth it. The environment is good and the staff are always friendly and willing to talk to you. Their fries and sauce are delicious and their food is alright but a little pricy for a poor college aged person like me. 😂 I mainly go with friends for shakes! My friends like the other food options but just not my thing.
