New Belgium and Colorado State University have some pretty deep ties. A big chunk of New Belgium co-workers (including our founder Kim Jordan) attended the university. New Belgium partners with CSU to store a collection of our house yeast strains. Plus, Kim Jordan and New Belgium teamed up to donate $1 million to CSU’s Fermentation Science and Technology program. We love Colorado State (go Rams!).
Our next chapter together is about to unfold as we’re officially announcing today a donation of $4.3 million to CSU’s on-campus stadium project. From the press release:
“New Belgium Brewing continues to be such a tremendous supporter of Colorado State University across the board,” said Brett Anderson, vice president for university advancement. “They invest in our students and our institutional success time and time again. Their gift to the new on-campus stadium speaks to their focus on community-building and their desire to support places and things that bring people together. We are so thankful for their continued partnership and support.
Today, we’re also unveiling a one-of-a-kind, in-stadium experience called the New Belgium Porch. In the fall of 2017, you’ll be able to enjoy a Fat Tire while having an amazing New Belgium football experience inside Colorado State's new stadium.
More to come as we move forward with the project.
