From New Belgium:
Ft. Collins, CO ., October 6, 2016 – New Belgium Brewing’s annual Clips Beer & Film Tour is coming to Philadelphia on Friday, October 21. This free event, now in its seventh year, features short films and a selection of small-batch beers with 100 percent of the proceeds from beer sales going to Neighborhood Bike Works. In total Clips has raised more than $659,000 for nonprofits. The event kicks off at 23rd Street Armory at 7:00 p.m., with the films starting at 9:00 p.m.
“This year is actually New Belgium’s 25th anniversary, so we’re doing things a little differently,” said Christie Catania, Clips national special events manager. “We asked ten filmmakers to incorporate the year 1991 into their film, as a way to salute the year that New Belgium got its start. The films do a great job of bringing us back to the glory days of big hair, questionable fashion, and outdated technology!”
In addition to a night of films under the stars, Clips offers a venue where guests can try New Belgium’s most esoteric beer offerings. Many of New Belgium’s Lips of Faith beers can be hard to come by and Clips offers the best way to try them. Twelve varieties from Lips of Faith to brewery classics will be available in 3-ounce samples, 12-ounce pours, or cans. For a complete list of beers available at the Philadelphia stop, click here.
New Belgium, promoters of environmental stewardship, encourages attendees to think twice about throwing away trash, with a significant amount of waste diverted from landfills at each stop. In addition, all locations will have bike valet, encouraging people to ride their bike to the showings.
