SMALL GRANT PROGRAM OVERVIEW
We like bikes! The bicycle is near and dear to our New Belgium hearts, as you might notice from the label of our flagship beer, Fat Tire. Not only is the bicycle all kinds of fun to ride, but as our friend Jimmy Hallyburton says, it allows us to experience our communities and our world at the speed of discovery: to connect with the world around us in a way that simply cannot be achieved when a car door is separating us from our surroundings.
We believe the bicycle keeps ourselves and the planet healthy, and we celebrate it daily here at the brewery. Ride on!
We are in support of Bicycle Advocacy projects that:
Break down barriers and fosters support for riders of all ages and abilities
