Location: Fort Collins, Colorado
Number of Employees: 435
Digs: Brewing complex with fermentation tanks and a wood-and-steel office building.
Culture: Social (the staff collaborated on a hip-hop video to promote a new IPA). Active (cyclo-cross on the company track, climbing on the company wall, on-site yoga, Ping-Pong). Lubricated (complimentary “shift beers” at the end of the workday). The brewers that created the Tour de Fat costumed bike parades clearly enjoy themselves. “Our core value is fun,” says media-relations director Bryan Simpson.
Sweet Perk: After one year, new hires are included in a 44 percent employee stake in the company. After five, they’re taken to Belgium with cofounder Kim Jordan.
Now Hiring: Graphic designer, warehouse technicians
