Corporate Partner Spotlight: New Belgium Brewing

solar warrior farm
New Belgium Brewing supports Solar Warrior Farm, which produces a wide variety of native and heirloom fruits and vegetables for Lakota families living on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

New Belgium Brewing is a company that exemplifies what it means to “walk the talk”. Their Local Grants Program began in 1995 when it was established that for every barrel of beer they produced, $1 would be given to non-profit organizations in the communities where they sell beers. To date, they have donated over $5 million dollars!

We are honored to be one of their grant recipients and want to thank New Belgium for all they do within our local Fort Collins community and far beyond.

A recent grant from New Belgium to our Tribal Renewable Energy Program is now supporting the employment of a “Garden Coordinator” at our newly established Solar Warrior Farm on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Thanks to this generous donation, Gloria Reyes is now employed and responsible for taking care of our 1/2 acre farm, which provides nutritious food to Lakota families living on the reservation. From all of us at TWP: Thank you New Belgium Brewing!
