Greetings from Colorado: New Belgium Brewing Co.

shiftFort Collins, Co.  About a 45 minute drive outside of Denver, we ventured to Fort Collins for the day and checked out the sites! Located on the continental divide, The township reminds me of an old western stop on the way west. As I quickly learned New Belgium Brewing is located here, and along with a beautiful brewery some of the most appetizing natural beer products I’ve tasted were here. Of my favorites, Shift, a 5% medium hopped beer is mild enough to refresh the 90º weather, and heavy enough for taste. The good news, is New Belgium is not only available in Fort Collins, but across the United States. On top of that they are known for their sustainable practices which include solar power, sourced local ingredients, and compostable packaging, distribution and water conservation. Making for a happy Sunday indeed.
