In 1989, New Belgium Brewing ..., 16 July 2014 [cached]
In 1989, New Belgium Brewing Company founder Jeff Lebesch gained an affection for Belgian-style beer on a trip bicycling through Europe. His taste for Belgian-inspired beer and reverence for the bicycle that brought him to it remain two tenets of the Fort Collins, Colorado craft brewery, which saw eighteen-percent growth last year.
The company went commercial in 1991 when Lebesch and his wife Kim Jordan took their brew from a Colorado basement to bottles bearing a likeness to the fat-tired bicycle Lebesch traveled on over twenty years ago. Read the rest of this entry >

The New Belgium Brewing Company's owner, Jeff Lebesch, named this beer in honour of a bicycle trip he had undertaken through Belgium. In Champaign, Illinois, where he resides, my brother Gautam hosts a weekly poker game and he was keen that I join in.

Jeff Lebesch, founder of New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, began homebrewing in his basement in 1989 with a kit he fabricated from used dairy equipment. After garnering much praise and encouragement from friends and neighbors, Jeff took his basement brewery commercial in 1991 with the help and support of his wife and present day New Belgium CEO, Kim Jordan.
Before selling their first beer, Kim and Jeff agreed to establish a business centered on their core values, including producing world class beer, promoting responsible enjoyment of beer, kindling social, environmental, and cultural change, environmental stewardship, and having fun!
I was in my thirties when ..., 9 Oct 2014 [cached]
I was in my thirties when I met Jeff Lebesch at a party in Fort Collins. We started dating and got married in the fall of 1990. Jeff is a bright electrical engineer and has a shy way of being.
For a short period, Jeff continued working for the firm he was with.
Jeff could build pumps and make a lot of the systems we used to build the first brewery.
Jeff and I gave 10% of our ownership to our co-workers through a deferred compensation plan, which began in 1996. In 2000 we merged that plan with an ESOP [employee stock ownership plan], and at that point our co-workers owned 32% of the company.
In 1996, Jeff realized he didn't have the technical capability to move the brewery forward. So we hired a brewmaster named Peter Bouckaert, who's Belgian, and when Jeff decided to leave, we had the right people in place.
Jeff stopped working at New Belgium in 2001, and we divorced in 2009. I stayed with the company because it's meaningful work that I want to refine. I really love the process of co-creating with people-not just making beer, but being an advocate for progressive business thinking. Jeff's been retired for 13 years but keeps busy.
Kim Jordan and Jeff Lebesch ..., 14 May 2014 [cached]
Kim Jordan and Jeff Lebesch founded New Belgium in the basement of a home in Fort Collins, Colorado in 1991 after a bike trip through the Low Countries convinced them that there was more to beer than tapping the Rockies.
Because having a brewery on the East Coast will cut down shipping costs, Jordan and Lebesch settled on the idea of opening their outpost in Asheville, North Carolina, a well established beer town.
