The very last Blockbuster video in Bend, Oregon is embracing their status and legacy. Now that they're definitely the last of a near-dead breed, they're going to have some fun. They've partnered with 10 Barrel Brewing to create a craft beer just for the store. The beer is called "The Last Blockbuster" and it will be available for a limited time only.
In a statement reported by Thrillist, the beer will have "a light body, smooth finish, and hints of nostalgia.” It is also going to feature tastes of red licorice.
This last Blockbuster isn't the first place in Oregon to get its own craft beer, and it probably won't be the last given the love and desire for these creations in the northwest. All I can say is that I can't wait to try it! Below is a picture of the glorious new product from 10 Barrel Brewing's Instagram account:
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 🍿 🍻
