New Belgium Brewing Co.
just released stats on July 17's Clips Beer & Film Tour
that brought 1,600 folks to America the Beautiful Park.
They say $12,018 was raised, up 120-percent from 2013. That money goes to Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates
, both Indy Give! participants as well.
Your next chance to do good by drinking takes place this Saturday, also in A the B Park, at the 8th annual Springs Beer Fest
. A hefty and quite respectable batch of more than 50 breweries has been assembled by hosting agencies Old Chicago
and Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery
Proceeds from this event will go toward Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado,
another Indy Give! beneficiary as well. Event organizers say more than $100,000 has been raised in the first seven years for area charities.
The fest runs from noon to 4; find ticket info and everything else at the fest's website.
