New Belgium Brewing brews much more than their famous Fat Tire Amber Ale. The Fort Collins, CO based Belgian-style brewer also produces an esoteric series of beverages called the Lips of Faith. The creative concoctions that don this moniker are not always easy to find. But many of them will be heading to Austin along with New Belgium’s Clips Beer & Film Tour.

The beer selection includes Yuzu Berlinerweiss, Wild Dubbel, Snapshot Wheat, Gruit, Gratzer, La Folie, Tour De Fall, Ranger IPA, Blue Paddle, Shift, Fat Tire, and more. You can try each one in a 30z sample or a 12oz pour. Once the darkness comes, get comfy on a blanket or chair and pair your favorite beers with inspiring, fan-made short films.

Food will be served by local Austin vendors The Seedling Truck and Chi’lantro. All proceeds from beer sales will benefit the Austin Ridge Riders Mountain Bike Club. Both this organization and New Belgium encourage biking to the event; bike racks are located at the west bound lanes of West 4th St between Guadalupe and San Antonio.

Entry to the park and viewing of the films is free, but beer will cost you $1.25 for every three ounces.
