Fort Collins is one of those cool towns we would love to live in. There may be no sights per se and architectural marvels are slim to none but it is surrounded by beautiful nature. The town attracts an active and liberal thinking populace; riding a bike to work is not uncommon. Well, at least the people working at New Belgium Brewing. Oh, that's why we stopped here. I admit it, it was the beer.

    Your experiences in the brewery and the beer tips themselves are excellent Richie! I'm already thirsty - but am in my work lunchbreak. Maybe I should have waited a few hours before looking at ths page!

    We drove right past without even knowing about the brewery but as it was breakfast time maybe that's no bad thing! Will check it out if around here again but will have to pass on the German wife - Chris might object and a wife really isn't my thing lol

    My god, can you send me a copy of the map you use? It must be some kind of US brewery travel map ;-)

    It was such a amazing place, full of fun, good beer & inspiration :) People working there seemed committed, not just doing their job.... I really like Don's suggestion :)

    Wouldn't it be great if all the big banks and insurance companies would follow the example of the New Belgium Brewery and give their employees bicycles as a bonus, instead of all that corrupting money?
