Save the Date: New Belgium Clips Beer & Film Tour in Reston Sept. 16

Beer Clips and Film/Courtesy New BelgiumNew Belgium Brewing’s national Clips Beer & Film tour stops in Reston next week for a free event that will benefit Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling.

This event, now in its seventh year, features short films and a selection of small-batch beers. It takes place Sept. 16 at  Reston Town Center at 7 p.m., with the films starting at 9 p.m.

Last year, the Reston event contributed more than $4,000 of the national total of nearly $160,000 raised for nonprofits, a New Belgium spokesman said.

“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 10 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 The films do a great job of bringing us back to the glory days of big hair, questionable fashion, and outdated technology!”

There will be more than a dozen beers to try, including New Belgium’s hard-to-find Lips of Faith varieties. For a complete list of beer available in Reston, check out New Belgium’s website.

Admission is free, but beer will cost: $1.50 (3-oz. sample) or $6 (12-oz size).

There will also be food vendors on site, including, Doug the Food Dude and Bacon ‘N Eds.

  • Please bring your government issued ID. No ID means no beer.
  • Bring low chairs or blankets —or lounge on the grass.
