Ever been to Clips Beer and Film Tour? It's swinging through 21 cities this year, and chances are one of them is pretty close to you. If you've been, then you know why it's rad. If you haven't, well, here are some pictures to give you an idea:
Clips partners New Belgium's Lips of Faith beer series — they're the rare, usually-small batch brews not often found outside Colorado —with experimental short films created by our fans. We think drinking interesting beers while watching interesting films is interesting, and other people seem to think so, too.
Clips Beer and Film Tour isn't really for pounding back beers — though you can if you'd like; it's more about celebrating different and unique styles. That's why we give out these cool-looking notebooks. Jot down your thoughts on Cascara Quad, Paardebloem, La Folie and Hoppy Bock Lager. What do you like? What don't you like? Don't worry, you won't hurt our feelings (though we do think all of our beers are the bestest.)
Seriously, there are a lot of different beers to try.
And we've always got staff on hand if you have any questions. Or maybe you just want to chat about how great beer is. That's a conversation we'd love to have, because beer really is pretty great.
There are lots of games, like life-sized Connect Four, Cornhole and Rolle Bolle, which our summer seasonal is affectionately named after. There's also this game. I'm not sure what it is; Throw The Dart At The Empty Beer Can Game? Who knows, but this guy is having a really good time playing it.
Oh, and it's always outdoors (weather permitting), so bring a chair, blanket and/or Snuggie™ and get comfortable in front of our giant inflatable movie screen.
Also, 100 percent of the proceeds from beer sales go toward a local nonprofit; more than $117,000 has been raised since Clips began.
So now you know all about Clips Beer and Film Tour. I told you it was rad, didn't I? Hopefully we'll see you at a Clips soon. Maybe we could even talk about how great beer is.
