NEW BELGIUM'S CLIPS BEER AND FILM TOUR

That’s a wrap! The 2015 Clips Beer & Film Tour was a great success raising $152,592 for non-profits across the country. New Belgium’s beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefitting show visited 20 cities and enjoyed the company of 20,050 people who came out to support impactful organizations while enjoying great films and great beer.

Since its inception in 2010, Clips has raised $659,000 for nonprofit organizations. This year, Kansas City raised the most money of any city for the second year in a row, bringing in $17,500. For more on fund- and awareness-raising, see the city-by-city breakdown below.

New Belgium’s Clips Beer & Film Tour combines our love for beer and films, putting them together in this one-of-a-kind event. Attendees get to try our most esoteric beer offerings and pair them with inspiring short films created by fans. The best part is that 100% of the proceeds from beer sales benefit local non-profits that are working to improve their communities.

The Clips Beer & Film Tour also promotes environmental stewardship, with a significant amount of event waste diverted from landfills. In addition, all events feature bike valet or parking, encouraging people to spend a night out on two wheels.

Details of next year’s Clips Beer & Film Tour will be announced in the spring of 2016.
