Clips of Faith will come to Seattle for the first time.  New Belgium, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale, selected the winning films and has hit the road for its second annual tour, bringing beer, entertainment and a good time to town.  Top film submissions include lizard wrangling in the dead of the Wisconsin winter, a talking beer bottle sketch comedy and a miniature day on a tremendous mountain. In Seattle, local resident Sam Nuttman’s film, “The Millionaire’s Club” will be featured as an honorable mention. The outdoor event will bring people together to view a free screening of the collected amateur films, taste seven of New Belgium’s esoteric Lips of Faith beers, along with seven popular classics, and enjoy food from local vendors.
