Spirit Lights The Way

After sampling Doug’s brews on Friday and Saturday, we went on a Tasting Tour of the New Belgium Brewery on Sunday . . .

New Belgium is home to Fat Tire beer.

The brewery is decked out with bicycles.

And some great revolving wall art.

The process is the same, but with much bigger equipment!

Did I mention that it was a Tasting Tour?

We enjoyed ample samples.

Here’s the group looking a bit sleepy before the tasting started . . .

Once the tasting began, interest picked up and we perked up . . .

Still farther along on the tour . . .

For the finale, we got to slide down a fireman’s pole transformed into a chute!

I also loved this montage . . .

And this beer can chandelier . . .

As we left, I spotted this sign of the times . . .
