I read today that New Belgium is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. That means that I discovered craft beer 18 years ago....I moved to Fort Collins in 1993, O'Dell's, New Belgium, and HC Berger had been established only a short while....and none of it was a sure thing. It doesn't seem like that long.
For its 20th anniversary, they are going to do something with their Fat Tire to make it into a Grand Cru.....they haven't quite established what yet....I am excited to try it. I may end up buying a New Belgium style coupler to just buy one of their kegs, if I like it.
New Belgium is also planning on opening a brewery elsewhere in the US this year....although they haven't said where. Nice. Happy Birthday NB. You make us all feel old....I am a Ranger from way way back!!!!
