WE WERE BORN ON A BIKE. THE REST IS HISTORY.
A bike trip through Belgium in 1988 inspired a young couple to bring the flavors of centuries-old Belgian beer to the town of Fort Collins, CO.
New Belgium Brewing is a nationally distributed brewery recognized as a leader in sustainability and social responsibility. Founded in 1991 in Fort Collins, Colorado, the company expanded to Asheville, North Carolina, in 2016, Denver, Colorado, in 2018, and then San Francisco, CA in 2021. It is now the third largest craft brewery in the U.S.
Dedicated to proving that business can be a force for good, New Belgium is a Certified B-Corp and was the first brewery to join 1% for the Planet. The brewery has donated over $26 million to charitable causes since 1991.
New Belgium is famous for its flagship beer, Fat Tire Amber Ale, along with year-round favorites like Voodoo Ranger IPA, Sour IPA, and La Folie Sour Brown Ale as well as an award-winning wood-aged sour program and innovative limited release beers.
New Belgium strictly prohibits and does not tolerate discrimination based on race, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, ethnicity, sex, gender identity and expression (including gender nonconformity and status as a transgender individual), age, physical or mental disability, citizenship, past, current or prospective service in the uniformed services, marital status, sexual orientation, genetic information or any other characteristic protected under applicable federal, state or local law.
While New Belgium welcomes all, we also acknowledge that racial, gender, and other injustices are thickly embedded throughout our society today. Direct action must be taken to redesign our economy and communities in inclusive ways. We are committed to taking bold action within our own walls and amidst the entire craft beer community. We must all do a better job of dismantling white supremacy.
FROM THE BEGINNING
Before starting New Belgium, our co-founder, Kim Jordan, was a social worker. She saw firsthand the inequities across our country, and made a committed effort to address them in our company.
From simple efforts, like offering health benefits to domestic partners in the 1990s, to more complex business maneuvers, like opening the financial statements to co-workers and gifting them shares in the company, Kim wrote her own playbook on leadership. Over the years this made our company more resilient, with less turnover and greater co-worker satisfaction.
TRANSFORMING THE CULTURE OF CRAFT BEER
As the craft beer movement grew in the 1990s and 2000s, our cofounder Kim Jordan was the only woman among dozens of men pioneering a new way of brewing.
Although the face of craft beer is changing, there is still a lot of work to be done to encourage diversity and inclusion.
At New Belgium, we’re committed to proving that business can be a force for good. When you join our team, you’ll play a role in bringing world-class beer to our fans-and you’ll have a hell of a lot of fun doing it.
