Tour De Fat

Over the past 5 years, New Belgium Brewing Company has graciously supported my endeavors by donating kegs of Fat Tire & Skinny Dip Beers for my Annual AIDSLifeCycle Fundraising Parties. Yet, New Belgium does not stop there. Although being green is not black or white, they believe “to be environmental stewards, we need to:

  1. Lovingly care for the planet that sustains us.
  2. Honor natural resources by closing the loops between waste and input.
  3. Minimize the environmental impact of shipping our beer.
  4. Reduce our dependence on coal-fired electricity.
  5. Protect our precious Rocky Mountain water resources.
  6. Focus our efforts on conservation and efficiency.
  7. Support innovative technology.
  8. Model joyful environmentalism through our commitment to relationships, continuous improvement, and the camaraderie and cheer of beer.”

And although Fat Tire Beer & New Belgium Brewing Company, walk the green path & will reward your for trading in your car for a bike. They also, travel the country giving graciously to local charity organizations like the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.

So oil your bike chains and don your capes, crowns, tutus and tuxedos! New Belgium’s Tour de Fat is heading to San Francisco. And, it’s going to be the usual hoot & holler. And yes, I’ll be there – (look for the black dude in New Belgium Spandex).
