If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price … or just come to our Avery Beer Dinner: POINT BREAK event on Thursday, May 23 at 7:00, which is less fatal, but just as thrilling.
Every generation has its bromantic epic, a film that lets men know it’s all right to love a ripped body, and cool philosophy, even if it’s embodied in another dude. For the ‘90s, that movie was Kathryn Bigelow’s POINT BREAK.
POINT BREAK is the doomed love story of Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves), a rookie FBI Agent on the trail of bank robbers known as the Ex-Presidents. When his partner Angelo Pappas (a scene and meatball-sub chewing Gary Busey) theorizes the Ex-Presidents might be surfers, Utah decides to infiltrate the local surfing community. But like so many undercover cops before him, Utah goes too deep, and falls hard for the waves, a girl, and the big kahuna of the beach, Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). Utah’s heart and soul are tested when he discovers Bodhi isn’t just the coolest guy of the surf, but the leader of the Ex-Presidents. Will he turn on Bodhi? Of course. He crossed a line. People trust him, and they died. But that doesn’t mean it won’t kill Utah to do it.
As summer means surf movies (even in a landlocked state like Colorado), we couldn’t resist shaping a Food and Film event around this guns-and-boards classic. With Avery Brewing Company coming in to be the Bodhi to our Utah, and Chef Seth Rexroad acting as our Pappas, we now have the perfect blend of food, film, and beer. As hearts and waves crash together onscreen, you’ll be served a series of five courses, all paired with their own Avery beer:

Paired with Out of Mind Coffee Stout
