  • Many years I had wanted to come here. I really did enjoy my visit. The beer is amazing and its so nice to get types of beer at the brewery that you don't get in your local store. The food trucks here were amazing! The outdoor seating was great. The bartenders were attentive and lively. They had some fun contests going on inside which made for an interesting atmosphere.
  • Reserve your brewery tour well in advance. This is by far the best brewery tour I have ever been on. They let you sample all of the varieties they make in house include some sour beers. You also get to see canning and bottling.
  • This has been my favorite brewery for years and I honestly thought I'd visit the new location in Asheville before this one, but with my destiny in my own hands, we stopped in Fort Collins for a night. Tours require reservations but again fate smiled upon us and there was two spots available on the next tour. Our hostess was a 20 year employee who graciously extolled the virtues of the company and their business philosophy. We toured the whole brewery with tasting stops along the way. This tour is a must for anyone who is a fan of. beer
  • Came here for a tour of the brewery (you need to reserve a slot) and really enjoyed the experience. The brewery is great to come spend time at as it has ample parking (parking annex across the street), a bike rental kiosk, a food truck, and two bar areas. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating as well. The tour was great as it went through brewery history (a bit too much of a cult of personality around their founder), brewing method, beer samples, and a walk through various sections of the brewery. Definitely seems like a great place to work and a brewery with a beer and employee focus. The tour ended with the option of sliding down their slide (because every brewery needs a slide) and a survey to get a bottle opener or beer sample. Great experience and certainly will keep me drinking their beer!
  • I was blown away by my experience at New Belgium. The premises was modern, hip, clean, and very inviting. I was able to sample their beers, eat fantastic food, and purchase unique merchandise. I also took the guided tour which really opened my eyes to the history of the brewery and how the whole process of brewing and bottling their beer really works. When visiting Fort Collins this will definitely be at the top of my list to see again. Highly recommend!!!
