About the Beers: At each tour stop, guests are invited to try New Belgium’s unique Lips of Faith series alongside popular classics. The beer list features everything from wheat beers to IPAs. Many of these beers can be hard to come by, especially the popular barrel-aged sour offerings (La Folie and Eric’s Ale) and the available-only-at-Clips Film Noir, a caramel, chocolate, vanilla, milk, imperial milk stout. Only one keg of this big malty/roasty brew will be available. Film Noir is basically a milk dud in beer form….no…..an EPIC milk dud in beer form.
About the Films: At the conclusion of an annual contest that garners over 100 submissions, New Belgium selects approximately 15 for inclusion on the tour each season. This year’s films touch on diverse topics – outdoor adventure, environmental activism, comedy, art, craft beer, and more. All films last under five minutes. Our selected filmmakers come from all walks of life, from basement hobbyists to professional feature-length directors. These films will be shown on a giant 30 foot inflatable movie screen.
About the Nonprofit: Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling are a group of concerned cyclists who want to make bicycling an integral part of the transportation network of Fairfax County, VA.
