This is a very special Hops&Horrors edition as it features 4 beer pairings for Twilight Zone The Movie - and really how could anyone pair just one beer with this movie. I feel each segment needed its own pairing ... you know, because drinking 4 beers in one movie is way more fun.
To play off the bitter, intolerant SOB theme I've picked a beer that will help sooth any intolerance. Omission Beer is one of the few beers gluten intolerant folks can drink and the IPA version rounds out the bitter theme. If you don't need any more bitterness in your life, they have two other beers that are perfectly acceptable substitutes.
Dale's Pale Ale is one of the first canned craft beers and one of my favorites. I can't think of any other beer I'd like to play kick the can with! Well, maybe Deviant Dales!
By this time in the movie, you might need a break. The first two beers were well over 6% and Hocus Pocus from Magic Hat Brewery, with its 4.5% is just the break you need. Be careful what you wish for and don't let anyone try to pull a rabbit outta your hat are the takeaways from this segment.
From the brewery name to the series' name to the beer's name, everything about this pairing is perfect! Oh and ending the evening with a giant imperial stout is pretty nice, too!
