War is Hell

But hopefully the documentary movie "Beer Wars" will not be hell to sit through. The movie, which documents the battle among the big three breweries in the United States (Anheuser-Busch, Coors, Miller) and the effect of craft breweries on their market share, is being shown at a special one-night-only viewing at 400 theaters nationwide. It will be followed by a live discussion with craft brewers hosted by Ben Stein. I think this will be more enjoyable than the war I had with myself after wasting money on Robocop 3, which was so bad that when the movie malfunctioned halfway through everyone in the theater started cheering wildly. The movie will be showing at 6 pm on Thursday, April 16 at the Century 14 downtown and Cottonwood 16. Tickets are expensive at $15, but bite the bullet, sneak in some beer, and meet up with me for a beer afterwards (probably Chama's downtown tap room or Marble; I'll let you know before Thursday).

Oh, 16$? Might just skip the movie and have a bit more beer money...

I like the way you think. Movies are expensive enough, let alone $15 for one. But I have a gift card, so it's free for me.

Hey, cool site! Looks like you do a lot of (beer) research. Have you heard of the upcoming club, "Geeks who drink"? It's some kind of beer trivia/drinking group; the name reminded me of you. Anyway, I'll check in periodically for new beers and upcoming events. (-McRae)

What can you do to get me out of work so I could join? Well if you are going to the tap room or Marble I get off work at 10. I will join ya for a brew just let me know if you are going to be out still at that time. Later!!!!

Holy cow! $15? They should at least throw in a few beer samples for that price :) Maybe you can just tell us about it in a future post...I am with Fitzerman and think I will save my $ for some delicious beer.
