Clips of Faith raised $7,500 in Asheville

New Belgium Brewing’s traveling film festival and beer tasting event came through Asheville last week (Friday, Sept. 7, in Pack Square Park). According to a press release, it “raised $7,500 at its Asheville stop on September 7, up more than $5,000 from last year. The evening could not have been more perfectly suited for a movie under the stars with about 1,250 people coming out to enjoy the films. All proceeds from the stop will go to Asheville on Bikes, which cultivates the culture of commuting and urban cycling within Asheville through celebration and advocacy.

“This was the 13th stop for the 2012 national tour, now in its third year. The tour will travel to 18 cities this year, showcasing amateur films while pouring beer from the hard-to-find Lips of Faith series, as well as a few popular New Belgium classics. Each stop along the tour features an outdoor screening of the collected films, a tasting of New Belgium’s beers and food from local vendors.”
