Our Craft Dinners are special because they pair an amazing film with an equally awesome entree and tie the bow with three beers from the perfect craft brewery. For the fantastically fun BACK TO THE FUTURE we chose the brews from California's SIERRA NEVADA (where the film is set). Tonight you'll get three brews: Ovila Tripel, Pale Ale, and the Narwhal Imperial Stout. For the crowning entree on this night, our chef Seth Rexroad knows that when it comes to going back in time to the 50s that he's grab one of those innocent, original burgers and bring it back for us to eat to forget about all of the future burgers we've had to endure, so you'll be getting a massive 50's style cheeseburger: an all American 100% beef patty, cheddar cheese, pickles, ketchup, yellow mustard, onions, mayo, tomato, and shreeded lettuce served with a heaping portion of Sierra Nevada beer battered onion rings!

Almost 30 years ago, Michael J. Fox & Christopher Lloyd took us on an era-hopping adventure with BACK TO THE FUTURE as the '80s raddest time travelin' teen and his unlikely sidekick - a crazy, wild-eyed, wild-haired scientist. What rose from those flame trails is the heaviest sci-fi comedy ever made - one that is often considered "the perfect movie" without hyperbole. (Find someone who doesn't love this movie and I'll show you a slacker!).

From Fox & Lloyd's comedic rapport to the DeLorean - a time machine with some style - to the film's basic premise of "What could happen if you could go back in time and meet your parents?" (Would you think they were cool? Or more importantly, would your mom try and get you drunk and make out with you?), we saw some serious shit in BACK TO THE FUTURE.

It was a film (and subsequent franchise) that showed us that where it was taking us, roads were not necessary. It would go on the give us an equally heavy duty sequel, that oddly enough became a blueprint for what we expected from a 2015 world. A nostalgia for the past and the future if you will.

Now here we are, months away from "the future"...still we have no Hoverboards, flying cars, power laces, JAWS 19 or pizza hydrator. But that's okay because we still have one of the greatest films ever made that can take us to the future anytime we watch it...even when that future is a thing of the past. (James Wallace)
