To manifest our love and talent by crafting our customers' favorite brands and proving business can be a force for good.
Kindling social, environmental and cultural change as a business role model.
New Belgium feels fortunate to support organizations through our grants program, and we also believe true change can only be reached when people commit their time to action as well as dollars.
Celebrating our collaborative industry, we teamed up with 11 other local craft breweries for the House that Beer Built 2 to build a home in partnership with the Beavers family and Habitat for Humanity.
New Belgium coworkers showed up in mass! Amidst sunshine and snow, we had 128 coworker volunteers on build days. Our coworker volunteers came from all over the brewery, representing 12 different departments. Through brewery sponsored fundraising and community events we rallied to raise $33k to put towards the $100k total project fundraising goal.
In honor of the men and women serving our country, New Belgium spearheaded a Military Appreciation Drive over the holiday season. We sent Christmas care packages to 160 troops overseas in order honor them, lift their spirits and show our appreciation as they serve our country.
We partnered with the Elks Lodge, who contributed $500 to the effort and donated their space for the care package assembly night. We held a bake sale, supported by a team of 11 coworker bakers and raised and additional $1947 to put towards the care packages. A crew of 67 coworkers and family members spent and evening together decorating bags and assembling the packages. It was a night of and good cheer!
We can’t fit the entire list in full but here’s a cross section of organizations our coworkers gave their time to in 2016: WNC Aids Project, Habitat for Humanity, Homeless Gear, United Way, Brother Wolf, Ciclismo Youth Foundation, Food Bank for Larimer County, Manna Food Bank, Mountain Hut Association, Alternatives to Violence, Poudre River Fest, CO Aids Foundation, Animal House, St. Patrick’s Center, Santa Cruz Museum, AmeriCorps, CitySERVE, Humane Society, Boys and Girls Club, Scleroderma Foundation, Bee City USA, The Nature Conservancy, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and numerous Poudre District schools and youth sports teams.
