Tour de Fat is New Belgium Brewing’s traveling celebration of all things bicycle, honoring mankind’s greatest invention. Born in Fort Collins, Colorado, to increase awareness and participation in cycling as a sustainable form of transportation, Tour de Fat has grown into a national rite of passage for cycling advocates and bon vivants alike.
Opening each show with a costumed bike parade through the host city, Tour de Fat celebrates the power of the bike by encouraging everyone to embrace their inner-cyclist and ride the streets as a rolling carnival of creativity. The festival also features a celebration of the inspirational car-for-bike swapper series in which brave souls hand over their car keys as a commitment to commute by bike.
So, we here at Chilkoot are excited to have New Belgium Brewing takeover our taps to kick off the Tour de Fat celebration that will be taking place Saturday July 25th in Loring Park! If you can't make it to Loring Park on the 25th or just want to prime your taste buds, stop in a try a pint or a flight of New Belgium's finest! We will be pouring Friday night and throughout the weekend, until it's gone!
