i'm brewing a beer for a movie
« on: May 08, 2013, 05:48:16 AM »
a pal of mine is the executive producer for a new movie, 'artists die best in black'....

http://www.artistsdiebestinblack.com/   

eric roberts (julia's brother) is one of the principals in the movie.  i haven't met him yet.  billy badalato is the producer.  he also did alien:resurection and top gun.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2827058/fullcredits

he was in my office and i mentioned that it would be cool if they had some black ipa at one of their parties (he loves hoppy beers).  he was a homebrewer a couple decades ago and he has tried some of mine recently.  he got pretty excited about the idea and we talked a few moments.

he stopped back by the office yesterday to let me know that they were actually going to use the beer in a scene from the movie in addition to having it for the wrap party. they even have an artist to design a label for each beer.

i'm brewing a single black ipa for the shoot and wrap party and for the release, we are going to have a single black and a double black ipa.

not quite 15 minutes of fame, but still pretty cool.

Awesome! Congratulations! Is this going to be a major production movie? Not straight to DVD?

Cool!  I would probably crack under the pressure and the beer would be infected!
What's the worst that could happen?  Beer?

Congrats!  Good luck with that Black IPA. 

I think homebrewed beer is currently a pretty hot commodity in the movie industry, at least in some circles.  My twin brothers co-directed an independent feature, "Winter in the Blood", their second feature movie that is based on the first novel of a close family friend, and it will premiere at the L.A. Film Festival next month.  The Montana Film Commission is hosting a party for them after the first showing, and I heard they had someone brew some kind of a wheat beer for the party.
