New Belgium Brewing’s annual Clips Beer & Film Tour will make its fifteenth stop of the 2014 tour in Atlanta, Ga. on Friday, September 19. The event will take place on Fourth Ward Skatepark Field from 7:30-10:30 p.m., with the films starting at 9 p.m. This beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting show is going coast-to-coast hitting 21 cities in its fifth year with 100 percent of the proceeds from beer sales benefititting local nonprofits. Since its inception in 2010, Clips has raised close to $400,000 for nonprofits nationwide and is making its very first stop in Atlanta this year. Clips is a fundraiser for Atlanta Bicycle Coalition – outside alcohol is not permitted.
Clips offers a venue where guests can try New Belgium’s most esoteric beer offerings, while watching short films created by New Belgium fans. Many of New Belgium’s Lips of Faith beers can be hard to come by and Clips offers the best way to try them. Up to 17 varieties from Lips of Faith to brewery classics will be on tap.

New Belgium beers will be available in 3-ounce samples or a 12-ounce pour. Served by local beneficiary volunteers, there’s plenty of fun to be had alongside a host of traveling tricks and contests. Food from Masala Fresh and Pho Sho Sandwiches and Pastries will be available.
New Belgium selects approximately 20 short films for the tour each season. All selected filmmakers for the 2014 tour receive a trophy-worthy beer in a custom screen-printed bottle, made exclusively for the winning submissions. This year, the chosen films include a banana with an attitude, ultra marathoners running with stubborn animals, neon spandex, and much, much more! It’s a diverse and highly entertaining line-up with something for everyone.
“Clips is a great place to come together with friends and relax,” said Christie Catania, Clips National Special Events Manager. “It is an outdoor evening gathering, where you can connect with friends, watch films and enjoy good beers. One-hundred percent of proceeds from beer sales benefits your local nonprofit.”
