Sponsored Post: New Belgium Brewery Tour de Fat

The following post is from our advertiser, New Belgium Brewery.


New Belgium Brewing's traveling celebration of all things bicycle will roll into Chicago on Saturday, July 21, 2012! More than an event, Tour de Fat is a rite of passage - a costumed bicycle parade, New Belgium beer, eye-popping entertainment, local food, crazy bike contests and much more. The ride starts at 10 am from Palmer Square (arrive early to register), followed by performances from Los Amigos Invisibles, Yo-Yo People, The Moth Storytellers, Sssnakenstein and many more. This leg of the tour benefits West Town Bikes. Visit New Belgium Brewing's website for more details and be sure to tell your friends.

The employee-owners of New Belgium Brewing would like to thank the following for making our folly possible: the inventor of the bike, our farmers and maltsters, the energy-stingy Merlin brew kettle, our seven proprietary yeast strains, our local water source the Cache la Poudre river, the Wyoming wind, anyone who lives like there is a tomorrow, and everyone in Chicago, IL, who enjoys our beer. Long live liberty!
