Fort Collins, Colorado, United States
New Belgium Brewery began operations in 1991 and has been eco-friendly since. The brewery is entirely wind-powered, uses energy-saving brewing equipment and even pays an increased rate for renewable energy. In 2000, New Belgium introduced its employee ownership program and developed a very quirky corporate culture, putting them in lists of 'Most Audacious Companies' and 'Best Places to Work'. Today, New Belgium is the 4th largest craft brewery in the US and has some of the best and happiest brewers to create great beer for them.
