Oskar Blues Teams up with Alamo Drafthouse for “The Jerk” Beer Dinner

“These cans are defective!” …Definitely not referring to Oskar Blues.

The Alamo Drafthouse, consummate purveyors of all things film, food and fine craft beer, will be teaming up with Oskar Blues founder Dale Katechis to present beer dinner screenings of the 1979 Steve Martin classic “The Jerk” in Austin, San Antonio and Houston next week.

With Dale on hand to share some wisdom, the five course beer dinner curated to accompany the film will feature some lighthearted gourmet offerings, paired with Oskar Blues beer (served straight out of the can, of course.)
