Avery Beer Dinner: POINT BREAK

Director Kathryn Bigelow
Year 1991
Starring Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey
Run Time 120min
More Info IMDb

Before Kathryn Bigelow was making movies about Iraq War bomb techs and SEAL Team 6 hunting down Osama Bin Laden, she was making IMPORTANT movies about vampires in the southwest and unruly gangs of surfer bank robbers. The ex-Mrs. James Cameron has never been more adept than when she took the pulse-pounding sports of high-flying skydiving and totally tubular surfing and mashed them together with a tale of heists, sex, and Gary Busey eating meatball sandwiches.

POINT BREAK may be a guilty pleasure for some; however, there is no denying that this film is most excellent.  Kathryn Bigelow delivers the goods and so will we with a five-course feast paired with Avery beer. Let your taste buds paddle out into an extreme line-up freshly prepared food from Chef Seth Rexroad and mouth-watering brew from Avery. A worthy feast for even the pickiest of ex-presidents.

Senior Brewmaster Andy Parker will be on hand to dicsuss each of the Avery beers served.

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

It’s telling that Pixar guru John Lasseter counts Japanese Studio Ghibli master Hayao Miyazaki as his key influence.  If animation in the United States ever has a chance to be something more than instantly devalued as a “children’s” medium, it’s in their hands.

Natty in suit and tie and fresh from an introduction (to a group of high-schoolers, natch) of his new film I Am David, Feig impresses with an open intelligence, an engaging charisma, and what appears to be a genuine appreciation for where he is in his career and life.
