Get a souvenir pint glass filled with Martin House's Day Break beer infused with Lucky Charms cereal, plus a flight featuring Cellarman’s Reserve IPA and the seasonal brews Counter Clockwise Swirl, Hibiscus Saison and Salty Lady Gose. Doors open at 7:30 for a brewery Q&A before the 8 p.m. movie.
Each month we're partnering with a different local brewery. This month, it's a special St. Patrick's Day edition with a showing of the most Irish movie ever made, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS, paired with an exclusive firkin infused with Lucky Charms brewed just for this event! They'll also bring a few favorites, including Single Hop IPA Cellarmans Reserve, Counterclockwise Swirl Golden, Hibiscus Saison and Salty Lady Gose.
About the film - THE BOONDOCK SAINTS
Possibly the biggest cult hit ever (or at least of the last decade) - THE BOONDOCK SAINTS was filmed in 1999 and completed in 2000. Blacklisted from theatres due to a backlash against violent films after the Columbine Incident, the film never received a proper theatrical release. Instead the film found its fan base on video and DVD spawning an international sensation that has continued with little or no media support.
Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus star as two Irish brothers that accidentally kill a handful of mafia thugs. After turning themselves in , they were released as heroes. Seeing this as a calling by God, the pair start knocking off more gang members one by one. William Defoe plays a detective trying to solve the slayings, but the closer he comes to catching the brothers, the more he thinks they might just be doing the right thing.
