New Belgium Brewing Company

New Belgium makes high quality, small craft style beers for a big audience and has principal operations in Colorado and North Carolina.

It's a stand out among beer makers for its commitment to the environment, human rights, and the improvement of the human condition.


New Belgium is named Best Overall Socially Conscious Beer in the SweetScore Recommends review from Writer Chris Ponzi.


From Chris' Review:


No company is perfect and most companies do everything they can to suppress that fact, while New Belgium is the first to admit what they’re doing wrong in big bold red letters (seriously) -- along with how they want to fix it.

Their transparency on all levels of their business is unparalleled to any other I assessed, as even a quick look at their Sustainability report on their website attests.

They also deserve recognition for:

-- leading in all of the places that green brewers can;

-- being female inclusive (if not centric) from their beginning;

-- promoting positive communities centered around the needs of the people in them -- with biking as an organizational structure for that.
