Beer? Threes Brewery. Movie? “Slacker”.

SlackerFor Road Trips Foodies in New York City later this month, there’s a unique event planned for 7 p.m. April 25, 2017. The Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn, 445 Albee Square West, Brooklyn, New York, will present a beer dinner for Richard Linklater’s film SLACKER, featuring a four course Austin-inspired menu created by Drafthouse chef Ronnie New, and Threes Brewery beers are paired with each course.

The “second-earliest” film in what would become a filmography, 1991’s SLACKER shows Richard Linklater in his most rudimentary stages as a filmmaker, the sponsors say, while also exhibiting lengthy flashes of the promise that he would deliver upon over the course of his career: “In his first attempt at the ‘Austin Still Life’ that would become his most distinguishing trademark, Linklater takes a day in Austin, Texas, and turns it into an occasionally meditative and always offbeat slice of independent Americana, brimming with quirky characters and poetic insights.”

The SLACKER beer dinner menu chooses a savory route, with barbecue, red-eye gravy, and even a take on the breakfast taco. The four-course meal will close with Captain Quackenbush’s Ice Cream Sandwich paired with Threes Brewing’s Voluntary Exile Baltic Porter. All served while the film is on screen. Tickets are $70.

Tim and Karrie League founded Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in 1997 as a single-screen mom and pop repertory theater in Austin, Texas. It now has 25 locations.
