New Belgium Brewing’s Clips Beer and Film Tour Revisits Boulder on June 28

The Best Beer and Film Celebration of the Summer is Coming to Town

[PRESS RELEASE] Ft. Collins, CO – June 6, 2013 – New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale and a wide variety of award-winning beers, is once again bringing its beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting show to your backyard. Clips Beer and Film Tour returns to Boulder on Friday, June 28 at Twenty Ninth Street Mall. This is the fourth annual tour, which has raised more than $200,000 for nonprofit organizations. Last year in Boulder, approximately 1,600 people came to the show and raised more than $10,400 for Community Cycles, which is our nonprofit partner again this year.

Clips offers a venue where guests can try New Belgium’s most esoteric beer offerings while watching short films created by New Belgium fans. Up to 16 beer varieties will be on tap, including selections from the Lips of Faith series and some brewery classics. The best part is that 100 percent of the proceeds from beer sales benefit local nonprofits working to improve communities nationwide.

New Belgium beers will be available in 3-ounce samples or a 12-ounce pour. Served up by local beneficiary volunteers, there's plenty of fun to be had alongside a host of traveling tricks and contests. Food from Verde Food Truck, Cheese Louise and Rollin Greens will also be available.

“Clips combines our love of hand-crafted beers with independent films while giving people a chance to enjoy an evening in the park,” said Christie Catania, Clips Manager-at-Large. “As for films, there's something for everyone from comedies to short documentaries, and the beautiful thing is you're drinking a beer under the stars, watching films and supporting your community.”

New Belgium selects approximately 20 short films for the tour each season. All chosen entries for the 2013 tour will receive a custom gift from New Belgium and screenings in 21 cities. This year, the chosen films include mastering the technique of dice rolling; the quest for the ultimate full moon shot; a duel to be the hippest hipster; and homebrewing in a small New York City apartment. It’s a diverse and highly entertaining line-up that can’t be missed!
