These brews bridge the gap between the silver screen and the copper kettle. 

Trinity Oh Face: Got a case of the Mondays? This farmhouse ale’s the remedy: Its vibrant lemon, dank barnyard and earthy grains will slap an “Office Space” O-face across your mug; bonus points for playing Michael Bolton’s entire catalogue in the background.

Laughing Dog The Dogfather: With luscious chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts and bourbon swirls, this big winter release is an offer you can’t refuse. Wind down after a long day of business with a snifter of the 11%-ABV stout—and don’t forget the cannoli.

SanTan Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter: Unlike Brian Fantana’s Sex Panther cologne in “Anchorman,” this beer’s not illegal in nine countries and it’s not made with bits of real panther, but you still know it’s good: Its heavy-handed cocoa and chocolate malt give it a formidable aroma and swallow.

Black Sheep Monty Python’s Holy Grail Ale: And now for something completely different: Surely, brave Sirs Robert, Lancelot, Galahad, Bedevere and King Arthur would have found courage in a few flagons of this biscuity, fruity ESB before lobbing the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch at the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog.

Alameda My Bloody Valentine: This seasonal release may get its name from the classic low-budget slasher film from the 1980s, but there’s nothing terrifying about the dried orange peel and blood orange juice that go into the spritzy saison.

New England Imperial Stout Trooper: This warming 10%-plus-ABV stout melts even the deepest rebel foxholes on ice-planet Hoth. Its insanely rich roasted malts and threads of licorice are perfect for recovering from a long carbonite freeze, but they may just turn you to the dark side.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
