Colorado-based New Belgium Brewing can trace its roots to 1988 and a cycle trip through Belgium.

The experience inspired co-founders Kim Jordan and Jeff Lebesch to bring Belgian brewing techniques back to their home town.

Three years later and the duo were selling Fat Tire, one of their first beers at a local festival, and they now have over a dozen beers in production.

But while they have spent 30 years creating flavours unique to the US market, they have at least one thing in common with all brewers – the use of steam.

Steam is used to sanitise their brewing equipment, as well as being a key part of the brewing process.
