He hates these cans! Stay away from the cans!

It's the timeless story of a man who was born a poor black child… Steve Martin (making his film debut) stars as Navin Johnson, the relentlessly stupid but innocent adopted son of a poor black sharecropper family who sets out on his own to discover his true self.

Goofy to the extreme, surreal and absolutely jam-packed with brilliant cameos, throw-away gags and set-pieces, THE JERK stands the test as one of the greatest comedies of all time.

Seems that not long ago the sniper trying to off poor, witless Navin wasn't the only one who hated cans. Cans were also the scourge of the beer drinking community. Thankfully Oskar Blues came along and started to change all that, showing beer nerds everywhere just how good canned beer can (and should) be. Eat your heart out, Silver Bullet... This special Beer Dinner presentation will feature a selection of Oskar Blues brews specially paired to go perfectly with each course of tasty food. 

So, as you watch cats being juggled on screen while you sip craft beer goodness from the OB brewery you can rest assured that you’re a real humanitarian. That’s right, proceeds from each ticket sold go to the charitable branch of Oskar Blues CAN’D AID!

This is absolutely guaranteed to be an evening even more exciting than getting your name in the phone book.
