New Belgium helped popularize craft beer starting way back before the craft boom in 1991, and its flagship beer, Fat Tire, is the beer equivalent of oxygen: available everywhere on Earth and not too notable. And, by being one of the largest craft breweries in the country, New Belgium has the time to produce a varied selection of year-round brews, which include ginger beers, chocolate stouts and several other unique brews you can't get anywhere else. At the facility there are also mountain bike races, bike-in movie screenings, and enough beer-education events to basically make you a cicerone. If there existed a beer-themed amusement park, it would look a lot like New Belgium.
