New Belgium’s Clips Of Faith Looking For Films

Clips of FaithFORT COLLINS, CO – New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale, is encouraging all amateur filmmakers to put the finishing touches on their favorite films for the second annual Clips of Faith Beer and Film Tour. The tour will travel to 18 cities this year, showcasing select independent films while pouring beer from the hard-to-find Lips of Faith series (and a few popular classics).
