No company is perfect and most companies do everything they can to suppress that fact, while New Belgium is the first to admit what they’re doing wrong in big bold red letters (seriously) — along with how they want to fix it.

Their transparency on all levels of their business is unparalleled to any other I assessed, as even a quick look at their Sustainability report on their website attests.

They also deserve recognition for:

— leading in all of the places that green brewers can;

— being female inclusive (if not centric) from their beginning;

— promoting positive communities centered around the needs of the people in them — with biking as an organizational structure for that.
