On the 13th of October, the Ladies Craft Beer Society of Ireland supported our friends at Four Corners and attended a viewing of Rocky at The Sugar Club; all in the name of promoting Victory Brewing.
Victory Brewing is a brewery based in Pennsylvania and has recently been imported into Ireland by Four Corners. Since Rocky takes place in Philadelphia, the movie and beer pairing was a clever promotional gimmick.
On each table, there were cartons of popcorn. I treated myself to a sampler of the beers that were on offer. From left to right, they are: Prima Pils, HopDevil, DirtWolf, and Golden Monkey. All of them were delightful, but my favourite one was definitely HopDevil. Lovely, well-balanced hoppy beer.
The Sugar Club is an excellent venue for movies; the chairs were comfortable, the movie screen perfect, and the tables for our beer and popcorn were on point.
The movie started around 8.30 in all its cheesy 80s glory. I had seen it before many years ago and forgot how much I actually enjoyed it.
Overall, this was a successful venture by Four Corners and a lot of fun was had by all. Maybe next time we can see Rocky II?
