New Belgium Brewing: A Model Employee-Owned Business

New Belgium Brewing: A Model Employee-Owned Business

“Kim Jordan and Jeff Lebesch wanted to run a more democratic business. Rather than shoulder all the tough decisions themselves, the founders of New Belgium Brewing Company sought their employees’ input early on. This meant cultivating what Jordan calls a “high-involvement culture” of engaged, enthusiastic workers and transparency with staff about all sorts of matters, including company finances.”

New Belgium’s Sour La Folie Makes A Sweet Springtime Comeback

New Belgium’s Sour La Folie Makes A Sweet Springtime Comeback

“Credit New Belgium with being up-front about this Flanders Oud Bruin. The company labels the bottles as part of its “Lips of Faith” series. The sour cherry flavor that goes with this style of beer is present, but La Folie is unquestionably a heavy pucker sour. It has a nice yeasty funk and good acidity and it’s a beer that would seemingly pair wonderfully with Chinese take-out.”

The Fort: Gunpowder & Tobacco

The Fort: Gunpowder & Tobacco

“Nestled in red rocks country, with alluring front-row views of Mt. Falcon to the west and Denver’s urban-stretching glimmer to the east, The Fort Restaurant is modeled after an old yet still-significant fortress in Colorado’s southeastern plains, eight miles from La Junta and along the Arkansas River. That long-ago trading post, Bent’s Old Fort, inspired not just the Morrison restaurant’s architecture, but also its “Paleo” menu, and for a time, its resident bear.”

New Belgium’s La Folie and the Denver Broncos: Both Representing Colorado in a Big Way

New Belgium’s La Folie and the Denver Broncos: Both Representing Colorado in a Big Way

“Looking for the perfect Colorado beer to sip on while you cheer for the Broncos? Crack open New Belgium’s La Folie. Oak barrel-aged between one and three years, this delightfully sour brown ale has notes of green apple and cherry. Sip this near the cured meat platter – it goes great with prosciutto and salami.”
