cLips of Faith = Super Fun in Madison

Last night, Madison served as the kick-off city for New Belgium Brewery's cLips of Faith Beer and Film Tour. The event was a fundraiser for the Bike Fed, and we had plenty of enthusiastic volunteers from the Bike Fed and local biking groups, including folks from the ACT Ride and the Bikers Against MS Ride.

The event was the world premiere for 17 short independent films, with the themes of sustainability, bicycling and beer running throughout. Sustainability was also a big theme in the beer garden itself, with several "Compost Offices" collecting the biodegradable beer cups, trays and food scraps for transformation into fertilizer by Wisconsin's Purple Cow Organics.

We're hoping to make this an annual event. In the meantime, you might enjoy Tour de Fat in Milwaukee on July 3, another New Belgium fundraiser for the Bike Fed where one lucky person will trade in their car for a $3,000 custom commuter bike. You want to be that lucky person? Find out how to enter here.
