We’ve had a great year of working with some of our favorite American craft breweries and we’re still going strong! This July we’re strapping on rollerskates and inviting our friends from the Lagunitas Brewing Company down to Texas for a proper Alamo Drafthouse Beer Dinner.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s BOOGIE NIGHTS is a movie that deserves to be seen again on the big screen. There are certain tones, nuances, and yes, characters’ bathing suit areas in the film that warrant being viewed in a bigger than life format. We’ve worked closely with the fine folks at Lagunitas on a special food/beer/film experience that will showcase their great portfolio of top-notch ales. Alamo Executive Chef John Bullington has crafted a gourmet menu that not only accentuates each beer’s unique style but also Dirk Diggler giant talent. Trust us. This is gonna be a good one.
It’s time to see Don Cheadle in western wear, Burt Reynolds as a porn director, John C. Reilly making margaritas, and everyone else in amazing steadicam shots from the masterful eye of P.T.A. Lagunitas hails from California, which happens to be where Marky Mark’s character finds fame in this risqué flick, but the brewers assure us that there is much less disco, drugs, and sex in the Golden State than the film would have us believe. We’ll have a representative from the brewery on hand at the screening to help us understand what California is REALLY like.
Lagunitas has been a major part of the craft brew revolution as we know it since they formed in 1993 and consistently puts out top notch product in the form of their year round selection and their special and collectible seasonals. One of their COOLEST offerings ever was a commemorative brew inspired by and for each of the first 5 Frank Zappa albums on their 40th anniversaries! Their flagship beer is their IPA which hopheads worldwide crave for it’s perfectly balanced bitterness. We’ll be sipping on the IPA, PILS, LITTLE SUMPIN' SUMPIN' and MORE at each dinner!
