There’s an 80’s song that talks about video killing the radio star. Then came the internet, and movie streaming that eventually killed Blockbuster, what was once America’s largest movie rental service. There is only one Blockbuster left, and it’s located in Bend, Oregon. 10 Barrel Brewing is based nearby that last lonely bastion of physical media rental (unless you’re still using Redbox.) Of course, such a thing calls for a beer collaboration. Here’s nostalgic flashback in beer form – 10 Barrel Brewing The Last Blockbuster.
Don’t act like you didn’t snag a mountain of candy on the way out the door on your rental adventure. 10 Barrel Brewing The Last Blockbuster screams popcorn and movie theater candy, and they certainly did so in abundance.
The beer is subtitled a “S1nistor Black Ale’ with nuances of red licorice. The image the brewery is circulating has more theater candy in the background, but no mention of the label.
We’d almost think it’s an April Fool’s Joke if it didn’t pop up in August.
The brewery and PR company of record have not responded to a request for more details…
Atlanta, Georgia’s Monday Night Brewing will have some whiskey bragging rights to go alongside their beer lineup. The brewery has an ongoing collaboration with American Spirit Works.
This story starts 5 years ago, with Monday Night co-founder Joel Iverson living next door to American Spirit co-founder Charlie Thompson. The businesses were born literally next door to each other. From a fermentation standpoint, brewing and distilling have a lot in common, so Monday NIght’s head brewer Adam Bishop and ASW’s distiller Justin Manglitz had a lot to talk about.
Monday Night Scottish-style Single Malt Whiskey starts with a mash full of cherrywood smoked malt, the same used in their flagship Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale. The mash was transferred 5 miles down the road using the highly scientific “renting a Penske truck” method. ASW distilled the mash and transferred it to white oak quarter casks.
Fortunately, our patience has paid off. Like the mighty Scottish badger, this Scotch-style Whiskey has a pleasant bite and will burrow into your belly with a smooth, slightly sweet, and delightfully smoky finish. – Monday Night Brewing
Monday Night Scottish-style Single Malt Whiskey is available in 750-milliliter bottles at Atlanta area liquor stores again in late-August and September.

Every beer collaboration is born out of friendship and mutual respect for one another’s brewing passions. In this case, the fermented love spans 2,000 miles. Introducing Firestone Walker / Creature Comforts Mother’s Milk.
The base beer is a milk stout that has been aging for nearly a year in rye whiskey barrels – a very intentional move. According to Eric Ponce, Firestone Walker’s barrel program manager, the sweetness of bourbon barrels would have been too cloying. “We designed the base beer with the intent of aging it in rye whiskey barrels—we thought it would be the perfect marriage. The dash of salt just makes everything pop on the palate,” he explains in a recent press release.
Mother’s Milk will be available to all attendees of this weekend’s Firestone Walker Invitational. 12-ounce bottles will be available at the brewery on June 2nd.
Availability: 12oz Bottles. Limited Release
