New Belgium Brewing

About
Right behind Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada, this is the 4th largest micro-brewery in the nation. New Belgium put Fort Collins on the beer map with their Fat Tire Amber ale, and expanded on the east coast in Asheville, NC, where they now brew and distribute from. This brewery, which started in a basement, is 100% employee owned and runs the Tour de Fat every year in select cities across the United States. Definitely worth going on a tour of this brewery with it's massive maze-like wood barrel (known as "foeders") aging room, which houses the largest sour beer program in the nation.
