In the history of cinema, there have been a few movies in which beer has played a central role. Cinematic masterpieces such as “Beerfest,” “Strange Brew,” and “Drinking Buddies” have graced the silver screen for years leaving beer-lovers thirsty for more. But, there has never been a beer movie of such epic proportions, such cultural relevance, such earth-shattering gravitas as “Smokey and the Bandit.”
The only thing better than watching Bandit out-smart Smokey is to watch it with a cold brew on an outdoor screen along with a gang of other beer-lovers. For those looking for this kind of experience, you are in luck! On Sunday, January 31 European Street Restaurant on Park Street in Riverside will host the second annual E-Street Movie Night.
To make the night particularly special, E-Street has decided to crack open a few special kegs, including:
- Intuition Underdark 2015
- Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA
- Dogfish Head Higher Math
- Lagunitas Bitter Oats
In keeping with the movie’s co-star – a truck load of a very specific beer – plenty of Coors Banquet beer will be available at just $2.00 per bottle. Oskar Blues’ Dale’s Pale Ale with also be offered at the astounding price of just $2.00 per can.
And, just to make it even more fun, Millie’s Famous Hot Barbecue will be onsite serving smoked pork sandwiches (get it?).
The movie starts at 7:00 p.m. and is free to anyone who wants to sit out and watch in under the stars. So, gather some beer-loving friends and make a convoy to Riverside. We’ll catch you on the flip side good-buddy.
