Here we are…2016. It’s safe to say 2015 was a great year for many. We saw some amazing groups step up and make waves in the industry.  We found some new friends in a few of them. Here is a stellar group of companies that you should get to know. We call them our “2015 Top Picks”. Incredible products from exceptional people. Wait to see what they’re doing in the new year!






~ BetterBody Foods ~


Remember when our friends over at BetterBody Foods sent us that package of samples?

Oh. My.

It was so great.


If you’re not familiar with them it’s probably because you’re not looking. They are popping up everywhere now! BBF has the best organic and natural foods for cooking, baking, health and wellness. And yes, you can even find them at Walmart.


Our in-house chef whipped up some coconut pancakes, better known as paleo pancakes. You’ll want to try them (totally yum). He actually made quite a bit of tasty treats with the BBF products. Not one person could resist them, and these people can be hard to please!

You absolutely must look into Symglass products. They make unbreakable pubware that looks just like glass! No, really. It definitely fooled me when I first held it. Oh, and they’re proud to say they are made right here in the US.

~ New Belgium ~


“Here’s the thing: culture isn’t about what you say; it’s about what you do.”


Sure, you’ve probably heard of New Belgium Brewing in some way, shape or form. Maybe you’ve heard of Fat Tire? They’re a pretty big brewery. And they craft some amazing beers right there in Colorado.

We wouldn’t normally push for you to learn about the nooks and crannies of a company, but this one is exceptional. Did you know that they are 100% employee owned?! Did you know that New Belgium sees each and every employee as individuals and each gets a voice? It appears to be a very cool concept. Moreover, it seems to really work! We recommend that you give a quick hop over to check out their What We’re About page. Even more coolness awaits.

They are a machine that is not slowing down. 2015 was a great year for new ideas and products. Here are some of their accomplishments:

New Belgium Brewing Re-Releasing Lips of Faith Favorite, Eric’s Ale

New Belgium Brewing to Showcase Small Batch and Sour Beers Through Denver Pilot Brewery

New Belgium Brewing to Open Hawaii with Young’s Market Company

Ben & Jerry’s and New Belgium Brewing Toast to the Next Pint in their Partnership
