Riptide (Heavy Seas)

Edit item Friday, 12 September 2014 00:00

Riptide White IPA

Heavy Seas Beer (Clipper City Brewing Company)

Baltimore, MD

 

The Buzz:

        This 7.25% ABV spring seasonal white IPA from Heavy Seas is perfect for anyone looking for something between a wheat and an IPA.

 

Hop Devil (Victory)

Edit item Friday, 05 September 2014 00:00

Hop Devil IPA

Victory Brewing Company

Downington, PA

 

The Buzz:

        This 6.7% ABV IPA is a perfectly balanced, compulsively drinkable experience. If you have even considered enjoying hoppy beer, drink this now.

 

Soulshine Pale Ale (Starr Hill)

Edit item Thursday, 14 August 2014 00:00

Soulshine Belgian Style Pale Ale

Starr Hill Brewery

Crozet, VA

 

The Buzz:

        This 5.2% ABV Belgian Style Pale Ale would serve as a potential gateway to stronger Pales.

 

Bourbon Barrel Stout

Bluegrass Brewing Company

Louisville, KY

 

The Buzz:

        It's right there in the name: this is a Bourbon Barrel Stout. It's a stout aged in bourbon barrels. Thus, it's a roasty, aromatic, liquory 8.6% ABV experience.

 

Optimal Wit (Port City)

Edit item Thursday, 31 July 2014 00:00

Optimal Wit

Port City

Alexandria, VA

 

The Buzz:

        Perhaps Port City's most well-known beer, Optimal Wit is a 5% ABV Belgian Wit brewed with coriander, orange peel and grains of paradise.

 

Vienna Lager

Devil's Backbone Brewing Company

Lexington, VA

 

The Buzz:

        What this 4.9%ABV Vienna Lager lacks in an original name, it makes up for in well-balanced flavor. 

 

 

Dirty Bastard (Founders)

Edit item Thursday, 17 July 2014 12:00

Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale

Founders Brewing Company

Grand Rapids, MI

 

The Buzz:

        Like I wasn't going to buy a beer called 'Dirty Bastard' and pour a bit out for ODB (RIP). This 8.5% ABV, 50 IBU Scotch Ale belies its name with a soft, musty taste and a long, semi-sweet finish. If you're feeling at all dirty and/or bastardous, pick this one up and kick back and it might just level you out.

 

The Corruption (DC Brau)

Edit item Thursday, 10 July 2014 12:00

The Corruption IPA

DC Brau Brewing

Washington, DC

 

The Buzz:

        This 6.5% ABV India Pale Ale from DC Brau is undoubtedly named for the defining characteristic (for those outside the beltway, anyway) of the city of its birth. The 80 IBU bitterness pairs well with a hearty dish of political corruption, of which there is no scarcity in Washington. Simply put, it's the beer DC deserves and the one it needs right now. In spite of its nefarious etymology, however, it's damn delicious and available practically anywhere in the greater DC area.

 

Sorachi Ace

Brooklyn Brewery

Brooklyn, NY

 

The Buzz:

        This 7.6% ABV Saison from Brooklyn Brewery, described on the bottle as "a cracklingly dry, hoppy, unfiltered golden farmhouse ale" is named for the Japanese Sorachi Ace hop with which it is made. Nothing terribly original on the nomenclature front but when you have an ingredient as awesomely named as 'Sorachi Ace' you don't need a clever title. I've been consistently able to find a 1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz. bottle at a Washington, DC Harris Teeter for about $8. I'd guiltlessly pay much more.

 

About Us

Tanked Matinee is the place to go for good drinking movies. What do we mean by that? Simply speaking, we evaluate and recommend entertainment media based on how much fun it is to watch with friends on the sofa and a cold beer in hand.

Everyone knows "The Godfather" is a great movie, but is it as great to drink with as "Roadhouse?" We can appreciate "Citizen Kane" as a masterpiece of cinema, but is it as good a centerpiece for your party as "Santa Clause Conquers the Martians?"

Tanked Matinee appreciates film as art, but when you're kicking back on Friday night with a tall Rum & Coke, you're not looking for art, man, you want to be entertained. We're here to recommend the best movies for your night in, whether it's a big party, small get-together, or just a quiet night alone with a bottle of wine or three.
