Clips Beer and Film Tour is returning to Madison for another round of bike-riding, beer-drinking, film-watching goodness. If you haven’t heard of it before, or need some convincing, here are 5 reasons why you need to go to Clips.
1. The beers
The beers! Oh, boy, the beers! New Belgium brings out their best. You’ll get to try an esoteric selection of New Belgium Brewing’s beers including Film Noir (exclusively available at Clips!), Tart Lychee, La Folie, Transatlantique Kriek, Slow Ride, Snapshot, Rampant, Ranger, Abbey, Citradelic, and of course, Fat Tire.
2. The Films
You’ll get to see 60 minutes of films hand-picked by the Clips crew for awesomeness. These creative films touch on craft beer (of course), advocacy/activism, humor, culture, adventure, art and fun. Not only that, but you’ll see the Bike Fed’s own short film featuring Dave Cieslewicz’s attempts to ride a tandem bicycle.
3. The Cruiser Bike
Do you dream of getting to ride away from Clips on your own, 100% American-made New Belgium cruiser bike filled with dozens of cases of New Belgium beer? Your dream could come true at Clips! Well, the first part, at least. Participate in the Life-Sized Games for a chance to win! We will also be raffling off this beautiful bike for just $5 a ticket at New Belgium’s 25th Anniversary Party at the Blue Moon bar in Madison on June 28th. You need this bike in your life, trust us.
4. Bike Valet
Biking is the heart of clips. If you’re riding in, we’re going to take care of you with FREE secure bike valet. Park your bike and “B sure” it’s safe with bike valet, provided in part by Madison BCycle! Bike Fed and Madison BCycle staff are teaming together to watch your bike while you enjoy Clips.
Plus, Madison BCycle annual and monthly members can dock their BCycle for free at BCycle’s virtual kiosk — enjoy the films and beer with no extra usage fees! Not a member of BCycle? Join now at madisonbcycle.com. Roll in, drop your bike off, and enjoy. We’ll even give you a high-five. The Bike Fed gives awesome high-fives.
5. Clips Supports Wisconsin Bicycling
Beer is great, but you know what’s better? Beer that supports a good cause. Thanks to the generosity of New Belgium Brewery, all beer profits will go towards our work to make Wisconsin more bike-friendly. Things like Share & Be Aware, our statewide campaign to educate motorists and pedestrians about road safety, our advocacy work at the State Capitol, and more. You’re literally drinking beer for a good cause!
