Richard Linklater’s upcoming film Everybody Wants Some is to get its own beer thanks to a collaboration between Alamo Drafthouse and Austin Beerworks.
Described as the “spiritual sequel” to Linklater’s 1993 college kids movie Dazed and Confused, Linklater himself is supporting the launch of the beer, and thinks it’s the perfect match for the film, “This is definitely a beer drinking movie – it’s a big piece of that hard partying college world,” says Linklater. “It’s flattering and fitting that these two institutions in my own backyard, Alamo Drafthouse and Austin Beerworks, would come together to celebrate the release of Everybody Wants Some in this way.”
Austin Beerworks Head Brewer, William Golden describes the beer as: “Extremely drinkable while still being interesting. A clean, dry finish with small additions of wheat and oats leave behind a hint of body. Saphir and Jaryllo hops provide bright orchard fruit and floral notes. If we had to call it a certain style, it would be ‘Dry-hopped Texas Common Beer’.”
However the beer will only be available in limited stores across Austin and select Alamo Drafthouse locations across Texas, but if you can’t enjoy the drink you can enjoy the film, which will be released in theatres on April 1. – AFP Relaxnews
