New Belgium Brewing’s Tour De Fat Coasts Back to Denver with Bikes, Beer, and Bemusement on August 25th

(Fort Collins, CO) New Belgium Brewing’s 19th annual Tour de Fat will roll into Denver’s Sculpture Park on August 25th, 2018, for a day packed full of festivities celebrating bikes, music, and beer. The party starts at noon with comedic acts, shenanigans, and of course, New Belgium Brews. This year combines many favorite past ensemble acts like Sedan Halen, The Handsome Little Devils, Daredevil Chicken, and KOLARS – plus our headlining act, Jamestown Revival.

“Our love for bikes runs deep at New Belgium, all the way back to our founding in Ft. Collins, Colorado,” explained New Belgium Brewing spokesperson, Jesse Claeys. “Downtown Denver’s Sculpture park is a great venue to celebrate Tour de Fat this August, and we hope everyone joins us in giving back to the Denver cycling community.”

As with previous installments of the Tour de Fat, the event was designed to put the “fun” in fundraising, with proceeds from beer sales benefiting Bike Denver and the Denver Cruiser Ride.

Over the years, New Belgium’s Tour de Fat has raised $664,062 for Denver non-profit and food course

“The Denver community is important to all of us at New Belgium. We’re looking forward to bringing the party back to our home state and enjoying the afternoon with our Denver friends,” continued Claeys.
