It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head? The New Belgium Brewery out of Fort Collins, CO has been one of my favorite breweries for a while now. Years ago my work had me living in a hotel far from home and I fell in love with Fat Tire beer. The company was 41% employee owned and the remaining was controlled by their co-founder and CEO. Well that’s all changed now and New Belgium is now 100% owned by their employees.
CEO Kim Jordan isn’t going anywhere; in fact the current company leaders are pretty much staying in place. New Belgium Brewing is expanding though. They are currently building a second facility in Asheville, North Carolina that is expected to start production in 2015. Now they just need to start selling it in Florida and I'll be happy.
