Brooklyn Bicycle Co. Teams Up with New Belgium Brewing to Build Custom Cruiser Bikes
(BROOKLYN, NY) Brooklyn Bicycle Co. announced today that they have partnered with New Belgium Brewing to build their 2019 highly coveted custom cruisers. The 2019 bike is a customized version of the Driggs 3 bicycle, with Brooklyn Bicycle’s signature double top tube design and a fully custom New Belgium paint scheme complete with white frame, red fenders, and New Belgium branding.
“We believe that every good adventure begins with a bicycle ride and ends with a pint of beer,” said Michael Craft, New Belgium Spokesperson. “As we learned more about Brooklyn Bicycle’s ethos of being purposeful and witnessed the attention to detail they put into their craft, there was a natural synergy.”
“Both New Belgium and Brooklyn Bicycle share a goal of connecting people with their communities via one of the most sustainable modes of transportation,” continued Craft. “The result is a pedal-powered smile generator.”
The collaboration with New Belgium Brewing adds to a long list of collaborations for Brooklyn Bicycle Co. Starting with the Museum of Modern Art and stretching to include brands like Carvana, the Woodstock Inn & Resort, and New York’s Wagner Hotel, the brand has cemented their place in the niche fleet bike program market.
“New Belgium has a cult following amongst our team,” said Brooklyn Bicycle Co. president, Ryan Zagata. “It’s exciting to work with a brand that aligns so well with who we are and what we do. There was so much effort and care that went into this process and we’re thrilled with the outcome.”
Arriving in March, these collectable, human-powered masterpieces can be found moving New Belgium co-workers around Fort Collins and Asheville, parading through cities at 2019 Tour de Fat festivals, on display at select New Belgium retail locations, and available at auction or through raffles to raise funds to support local non-profits throughout the nation.
