HelloCello's Fred Groth
Wins New Belgium Brewing

"Cruiser" Bicycle!

Congratulations to Fred & Amy Groth of HelloCello's Limoncello di Sonoma (one of our wonderful Beverage Partners), who won the New Belgium Brewing cruiser bicycle! The raffle draw took place on Monday, June 6, 2011, at our special screening of Troll Hunter. Apparently lucky Fred had purchased only ONE TICKET which turned out to be the winner! See our press release for more details.

This classic almost-one-of-a-kind bicycle is not available for retail sale as it was provided especially for the Sonoma International Film Festival by New Belgium Brewing, one of our Premier Sponsors.

PS: Did we mention that the front basket is just the right size to hold a case of Fat Tire beer?
