New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale and a wide variety of award-winning beers, is once again bringing its beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting show to Davis.
“Clips” Beer and Film Tour returns to Central Park at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 26, for the fourth year. More than $200,000 has been raised for nonprofit organizations nationwide. Last year in Davis, approximately 1,300 people came to the show and raised more than $8,500 for Davis Bicycles!, which is New Belgium’s nonprofit partner again this year.
“Clips” offers a venue where guests can try the company’s beverages while watching short films created by New Belgium fans. Up to 16 beer varieties will be on tap, including selections from the Lips of Faith series and brewery classics. All of the proceeds from beer sales will benefit Davis Bicycles!, a local bike advocacy group.
Admission is free. New Belgium beers will be available in 3-ounce samples or a 12-ounce pour. Food from Monticello Cuisine and The Davis Graduate also will be available, or guests are invited to bring their own picnic dinners. Blankets and low lawn chairs are encouraged.
“ ‘Clips’ combines our love of hand-crafted beers with independent films while giving people a chance to enjoy an evening in the park,” said spokeswoman Christie Catania. “As for films, there’s something for everyone, from comedies to short documentaries, and the beautiful thing is that you’re drinking a beer under the stars, watching films and supporting your community.”
The 2013 tour features screenings in 21 cities.
