The time has come. The interns last recreated 80′s movie scene.
We decided to make this ridiculously hard. Because, why not?

So, here’s the deal.
This photo represents 5, yes FIVE movies from the 80′s.
A word from each of the movies overlaps the next.
There is a big chance that 1.5 of you will call bullshit on one of these.

We will enter your name for every correct movie guess. You can only guess 5 movies though.
In addition, we’re adding a one 16oz stainless steel beer cup to the prize.

BONUS: If you correctly guess the movie title phrase that is in our mind. i.e. in the right order and as one long title, then you will be entered to win a separate prize consisting of a 64oz Stainless Steel Growler, plus the prize stuff below.

If asked, we will provide up to 3 hints, (through fb or twitter only)

Lastly, this might not be hard at all. There, I hedged.

Last, lastly. These interns have been great. Reward them high fives when you see them. Also, ask to get a photo with Pete’s mustache.

And…Here’s the photo.

Interns Recreate 80′s Movie Scenes Contest # 6

Well, this is the second to last 80′s movie scene. Next week, it will be a three movie mash up, so prepare yourself. But until the shoe drops, we’ll focus on the present.

Today’s photo features a very special guest and muppet fan Rikki. Why? 1. because she is awesome and 2. because she was walking by when we were shooting this scene and the interns needed another body. That’s why. Quit asking questions.

So, you know the drill.

Beer vs Fire, A Joint Fundraising Effort for Wildfire Victims

Jared Vallejo
POSTED BY

Fire sucks. Especially when it’s so damn destructive and affects our communities.
So, we came up with an idea to help those directly affected by the wildfires. Fortunately for us, Icicle Brewing Company feels the same way, so we decided to make this a joint effort. Read the official press release below.

You can also just skip all this and go to http://ihor.se/beervsfire, which has more pictures n’ stuff.

#######################

For Immediate Release

Two Eastern Washington Breweries Join Forces in Beer vs. Fire Fundraising Effort

Iron Horse Brewery and Icicle Brewing Company plan to raise $12,000 for fire victims.

ELLENSBURG, WA (August 11, 2014) Iron Horse Brewery of Ellensburg and Icicle Brewing Company of Leavenworth are kicking off a fundraising effort called Beer vs Fire to help victims affected by the Carlton Complex, Snag Canyon, Chiwaukum Complex and South Cle Elum Ridge fires. “It’s starting to seem that giant fires are a new feature of summer in our region. As breweries we are in a good position to help with the aftermath. I know I try to do the right thing at times like this, but when beer is involved, I tend to always do the right thing. We’re hoping to facilitate that for our neighbors” said Greg Parker, Owner of Iron Horse Brewery “And of course working with the great Icicle Brewing Company makes this even better”.

FUNDRAISING
“The fundraising portion is designed to be simple”, said Jared Vallejo, Marketing Director at Iron Horse Brewery. “For every purchase of specially marked ‘Beer vs Fire’ bottles the producing brewery will contribute $1.00 toward the fund.” said Vallejo. The goal for the fundraising effort is to raise $12,000. “It’s an ambitious goal”, commented Pam Brulotte, Owner of Icicle Brewing Company “but we believe with the support of our wholesale partners and retailers this can happen.” The funds will be directed to the local Red Cross, specifically designated for the fires.

THE BEER & AVAILABILITY
Icicle Brewing Company will be packaging their Crosscut Pilsner. The newest beer to be bottled by IBC, this Pils was crafted to be a beer that any and everyone can enjoy which fits the mold of this fundraiser as it’s an effort in which any and everyone can help make a difference 1 or 100 beers at a time!

Iron Horse Brewery will be packaging its popular 509 Style ale in 22oz Bottles. The ale of the eastside, as Iron Horse calls it, is currently available in draught but because 509 is the area code of Eastern Washington it only made sense to use this beer for fundraising on this side of the mountains.

Both beers are uniquely produced by their respective breweries, but will be specially marked with a red ‘Beer vs Fire’ moniker on the labels to help customers recognize the fundraising initiative. 509 Style and Crosscut Pilsner will be available from their respective breweries by the end of August and in a number of bars and grocery stores in Eastern Washington.

For more information and to track the fundraising effort, go to http://ihor.se/beervsfire

There are only two more weeks to play along. Or don’t. I completely get the impulse to not participate in these things.

We decided to mix things up, or rather mash things up, because, well we get bored with routine.
Yes, routine is doing the same thing more than 3 times.

Routine sucks.

It’s why I never use the same bathroom more than twice.

Anyhow, This week’s contest is simple. The interns combined two 80′s movies into one scene.
You must correctly guess both movies in order to qualify for the prize.

Note: We’ve added one more prize. Two free entries to the IHB 10 Year Anniversary Party on August 9th.

And here’s the picture.
