New Belgium believes that “without healthy rivers, forests, and soils, it’s impossible to brew great beer. For nearly thirty years, Fat Tire has been working to reduce its impact and protect the land and water that make great beer possible. Today, on International Beer Day, Fat Tire is now proud to say it is America’s first certified carbon neutral beer.”
