In 2008, New Belgium Brewing Company was named the best place to work in America by Outside magazine. This could be attributed to the brewery's efforts to ensure the "wellness" of their employees. Once a month the brewery's Wellness Committee meets to discuss activities, such as bike tours, for employees to participate in. In the Outside The Best Places to Work 2013, New Belgium Brewery was ranked 17th and listed as having 484 employees. @NewBelgium — we have a climbing wall in our wood cellar.
