2007 Alpinist Film Festival Beer Sponsor: New Belgium

Jackson, Wyoming – February 22, 2007 – The Alpinist Film Festival is pleased to announce New Belgium as the official beer sponsor of the 2007 Alpinist Film Festival. The Festival will be held in downtown Jackson, Wyoming, from March 15th – 17th, at the city’s new Center for the Arts.

New Belgium is the first official liquor sponsor for the Alpinist Film Festival and represents the Festival’s growth and expansion as an international festival. At least four beers will be available on tap and the proceeds of the liquor sales – which will be poured at suggested donation – will benefit One Percent for the Tetons, the Festival’s charity for the 2007 event.

“So now not only will we have great films at a great venue with great speakers, we’ll also be having great beer – if not the best beer – to compliment the Festival and its many fans,” said Festival producer Wayne Roberts. “New Belgium is an important and needed addition to the Alpinist Film Festival.”

Based out of Fort Collins, Colorado, and most widely known for its Fat Tire beer, New Belgium will be the exclusive liquor sponsor for the Alpinist Film Festival. From New Belgium’s beginning, the company has been widely respected for its philanthropic interests and responsible business practices, having donated more than two million dollars to various organizations across the States and always donating at least $1 for every barrel sold.

“I’m incredibly excited about New Belgium signing on as our first-ever beer sponsor,” said Festival Founder and Alpinist Editor Christian Beckwith. “They’re a great company to be working in conjunction with, our values and theirs being one and the same.”

“The 2007 Festival represents and stands for what more is to come with the Alpinist Film Festival,” said Beckwith. “And I sincerely hope that as we continue along in our growth and maturity, New Belgium is always there along our side, supporting our vision and pouring some of the best beer in America at each and every event.”
