The winter holidays are nearing …and you’re ready for the fun. Well good, because we’ve got this! From the nation’s coolest beer events, to movies, music and cutting edge TV – we’ve got you covered. Plus we’ve another weekend beer pick for you, because we know you’ll be drinking.
Festivus For The Rest Of Us (Denver, CO) – Festivus, an alternative holiday originally introduced in a Seinfeld television segment has evolved into one of the nation’s best holiday-themed drinking events EVER. And finally the wait is over because this Saturday December, 15th Denver Beer Festivus is returning to the Denver Sports Castle for its 7th annual run. A mecca for local brewers and beer fans alike, 2018’s afternoon beerganza promises to be a rockin’ good time!
On The Big Screen – Another week another Marvel comic franchise movie but this one avoids the CGI tedium that this genre has wrought, in favor of cutting-edge animation. With its classic storytelling and striking animation, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an unpretentious pleasure with plenty of heart, humor, and superhero swagger that some critic are calling the best Spiderman movie ever!
Holiday TV Time & Streaming – With the winter holidays fast approaching, it’s a great time to revisit a classic Christmas flick and Netflix has a number of them that will pair seamlessly with The Best Christmas Ales. We suggest that you start with Bill Murray’s Christmas Special from 2015 if only because it’s so strangely surreal. Directed by Sofia Coppola, who took Murry to another level in Lost in Translation, A Very Murray Christmas is a bizarre hour of music, comedy, and celebrity pals who play off Bill Murray at his cheesy lounge singer best.
THE ACB WEEKEND BEER PICK
This weekend we’ll be drinking a limited release from Schlafly Beer’s that first debuted in 2017. Hugely hoppy and still easily drinkable, Schlafly Tasmanian IPA is a 7.2% ABV India Pale Ale that was named as one of Food & Wine’s Best IPAs in America which we agree it deserves.
