Fort Collins’ ‘Tour de Fat’ Makes List of Top 10 North American Beer Festivals
A Fort Collins tradition has made another top 10 list. New Belgium Brewing’s “Tour de Fat” made OutsideOnline.com’s Top 10 Best North American Beer Festivals list. The annual series of bikes on parade brings 20,000 cyclists to Fort Collins where the beer flows and the costumes are encouraged.
There are also vaudeville acts, yo-yo performances, bands, slow-riding contests, and, of course, plenty of New Belgium brews. The Tour is free, and proceeds from beer sales go to bike-related charities. Over the past 12 years, New Belgium has raised nearly $2 million. Cheers to that.
