Does watching a '90s action movie starring Nicolas Cage put a grin on your face? And not just any grin, but one just like the kind you might see on Nicolas Cage's face in a '90s action movie? If you answered yes to both of these questions, and you like beer and film-themed art, then the Scratch has a treat for you.
For one night only, they're celebrating the wonder that is Con Air — that's right, the flick that thought a plane full of criminals was a good idea. Cage has long, flowing locks, everyone from John Cusack to Steve Buscemi to Dave Chappelle also shows up, and of course there's a crash landing.
At Welcome to Con Air, the Milton bar will serve up one off-beers by Brewtal Brewers, Newstead Brewing Co., Croft Brewing Company and Bacchus Brewing Co made especially for the occasion, plus showcase up-and-coming Australian artists in a group exhibition — and yes, both the booze and the paintings are inspired by the movie. Plus, there's a screening of the film, of course. The only thing that's missing is a 'How Do I Live' singalong, but who knows what might happen by the end of the evening.
