Not much says farewell to summer as sweetly as handmade films and beer. New Belgium Brewing is in its fourth year of hosting the outdoor Clips Beer and Film Tour festival. Along with a knack for brewing, the 100 percent employee-owned brewery based out of Fort Collins, CO has a flair for involving and supporting other local communities. The 21 city tour scopes out a different nonprofit organization at each stop to receive 100 percent of their beer sales from the tour, and the bike-friendly company has chosen to give back to Bike Athens this year. The evening serves up samples and full 12 ounce pours of popular brews, food from Atlanta’s The Pickle Food Truck and 20 short films created by fans. This year’s subjects range from home-brewing in a small New York City apartment to a duel to be the hippest hipster. Low lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged, and the whole family is welcome to attend. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. and is free.
