Do you remember your Friday night ritual back in the day?
You know heading to your local Blockbuster, wandering the aisles to find the perfect movie, find just the right snacks/candy, and of course when you bring the movie back...making sure you don't get a late fee!
It was a sad sad day and officially the end of our childhood when Blockbuster closed all of their stores except for one.
Bend, Oregon is the home of the LAST REMAINING Blockbuster store and to celebrate the last holy grail, the store is collaborating with local Bend brewery 10 Barrel Brewing to create an official Blockbuster beer.
According to the brewery, the drink is called 'The Last Blockbuster."
The company said that the beer "pairs perfectly with buttery theater popcorn and your favorite movie-sized chocolate with a light body, smooth finish and hints of nostalgia."
The Last Blockbuster beer will be revealed at a block party on Friday, September 21st in Bend.
The party is open to the public and attendees will be the first to taste the new Blockbuster beer.
After the block party, the exclusive beer will be available at all 10 Barrel pub locations for a limited time.
The last Blockbuster store in America is right here in Bend, and we were lucky enough to brew an extremely special beer with them. We promise each sip will deliver you back to a time when cracking open that blue and white VHS case was the sound of an epic Saturday evening. To celebrate the beer release, we are throwing a block party at... You guessed it. Blockbuster! Grab some popcorn and head to our Facebook for party details. #bekindrewind and #drinkbeer 🍿 🍻
