Brewery Event: Seattle: New Belgium's Clips Beer & Fillm Tour returns this Friday, July 29th

Press Release

Ft. Collins, Colo., ... New Belgium Brewing’s annual Clips Beer & Film Tour is coming to Seattle on Friday, July 29. 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 local non-profits. In total Clips has raised more than $659,000 for nonprofits, with close to $14,000 coming from Seattle in 2015. The event kicks off at Gas Works Park at 8:00 p.m., with the films starting at 10:00 p.m. DJ Greg Vandy, from KEXP will be spinning tunes to get the evening rolling. Please note that this event is a twenty one and over affair. 
 
“This year is 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 The films do a great job of bringing us back to the glory days of big hair, questionable fashion, and outdated technology!”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. Eleven varieties from Lips of Faith to brewery classics will be available in 3-ounce samples, 12-ounce pours, or cans.
 
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.
