Part of The 2014 Off-Centered Film Festival!

Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone will be live for a post-screening Q&A!

HOT ROD is about as perfect as a pure comedy gets. Over the years following its release the film has developed an audience of loyal fans - and rightly so!

The Lonely Island's patented brand of audacious comedy teams up with Bill Hader, Danny McBride, Ilsa Fisher, Will Arnett, Chris Parnell and more to make a comedy that's wacky and zany while also being incredibly smart.

The film follows man-child Rod (Samberg), a small-time stuntman in his town. He spends his days hanging with his crew (Hader, McBride and Taccone), fighting his stepfather, eating jellybeans, popping wheelies on his moped, and shooting off fireworks found in public bathrooms. In other words he's livin' the dream.

That is until his stepfather (Ian McShane...no really Ian McShane) is dying and only a conveniently-priced, $50,000 surgery can save him. Rod must find a way to use his stuntman skill set to save his stepfather, so then he uncork the beating of a lifetime on him.

The film also inexplicably stars Sissy Spacek!

Watching this movie for the first time is like breathing fresh air followed by getting punched in the stomach. Mainly cause when you start it you're breathing and then you begin laughing so hard your stomach hurts...a lot.

It's WAYNE'S WORLD meets Monty Python, but it's also nothing like either of those.

It's gained a little cult following because those who've seen it, love it and those who haven't seen it need better friends to tell them about such great things.

So, if you haven't felt the brutal greatness that is HOT ROD there's no better way to be initiated into the crew than with this once-in-a-lifetime Rolling Roadshow screening with great beer and The Lonely Island (R.J. LaForce)

For this special event Dogfish Head brewmaster Sam Calagione will be on hand as will be:
