Absolutely gorgeous campus. Lots of space inside and out to enjoy a beverage, throw a frisbee, play some Cornhole, or just relax in the grass. Solid selection of beers on the board featuring their tradition Belgian and famous sour ales to their American style options. Wouldn't mind seeing a little more info on the beers available though. I wish I had more time to explore and hang out here. The tour sounds fantastic which would explain why it books up so quickly.

Try an Odell IPA. Had a Voodoo on tap and couldn't finish it.

My husband and I toured NB Brewery last week. Our tour guide, Jack, was fun and informative. The facilities were beautiful and the beer amazing!

i cant believe i have lived in colorado for so long and been so active in the beer scene here and not yet been up to new belgium for the full experience. my bad for sure, this place is rad! they have a great campus up in fort collins, and its well worth visiting. the taproom is cool, big and busy for sure, but well staffed and they did a good job making it personal and not keeping me ever waiting for a beer. i was a little bummed to not see too many brewery exclusive beers, they hardly had anything that you cant find on any store shelf, i always look forward to one offs at breweries, but they were curiously absent here, which is my only real critique, but they had some lips of faith stuff pouring and all the hoppy beers i had were far better and fresher here than they ever seem to taste out in the world. definitely do the tour when you go, these guys have a beautiful facility, and were one of the first to do wood on this scale here in the states, and their room full of foeders is positively awe inspiring. we forget about this side of new belgium all too often i think, and we really shouldnt. the beers coming out of here have been pioneering, and its amazing to see where its all come from. had a great experience in here, and would highly recommend it to anyone! the visit gave me new respect for them...

New Belgium has a great clean, beautiful "Liquid Center" on the banks of the French Broad River in West Asheville, NC.
Spacious parking and grounds, spacious taproom, with patio overlooking the river and more wonderful outdoor areas.
It all looks pretty new, as in brand new concrete, pavement, sidewalks and facilities. Great friendly staff and wide selection of logo adorned goodies, also including cold brews to-go and selections that are not in the stores. A must-see, if you are in Beer City, NC.

Since New Belgium is really a large volume brewer, we did not expect the wonderful treatment we received there. The tour of the facility was fun and provided a great sampling of their major styles of beers. The Tour Guides/Employees are particularly fun to be with as they show a great appreciation of their work in letting the visitor feel welcome and informed. I'm looking forward to comparing the experience in Asheville at their new facility.
