New Belgium Brewery Tour

I recently drove down to Fort Collins, Colorado to exchange Christmas gifts with one of my favorite people in the world. While down there, we also toured New Belgium brewery, sampled some brews by Odell, and took in a gallery crawl. These photos are from New Belgium (since I’ve migrated my blog, the quality of the thumbnails has diminished. Click on any for a better shot) :

I didn’t know much about beer until I moved within striking distance of New Belgium, having generally associated beer with that mass-produced, dirty-sock-water stuff. I’m still learning a lot, which has been fun.

Along our tour, we got to sample their Abbey, Dunkelweizen (a new one that will be released soon with limited distribution), La Folie, 2 Below, and…a few others. There were chocolates, and a ride down a curly slide. The building is adorned with lots of fun art, and their commitment to environmental causes is evident. In short, if you’re going to be in Fort Collins, make sure to reserve a spot for a tour.

…and a taxidermied badger (dude wanted $125 for it). Suffice it to say, I am not the new owner of said badger.

Taken in Laramie, Fort Collins, and Denver.
