How Michael Jackson continues to shape the future of the American craft beer renaissance, from brewers to writers, filmmakers to importers. A special roundtable panel perspective of Michael Jackson's enduring legacy, from those close to him and a generation inspired by his work.
Beer Hunter is a documentary film about the beloved and influential beer and whiskey journalist Michael Jackson. His books on beer and whiskey have sold millions of copies, and his 1993 Discovery Channel television series, The Beer Hunter, inspired countless brewers and beer enthusiasts and literally helped shape the course of the craft brewing revolution sweeping the world.
July is Oregon Craft Beer Month, a time to celebrate the many handcrafted ales, lagers, pilsners and stouts that McMenamins brews right onsite at many of our properties. So we're toasting this auspicious month with special beer events and tastings.
The Mission Theater -- the place that first put beers into the hands of Portland theater-goers so many years ago -- has proudly introduced a new line of programming, dubbed "The Assembly."
While retaining its relaxed environment, comfortable seating and matchless sightlines, the Mission is dropping its second-run movies, stepping up its food and beverage offerings, and -- best of all -- evolving the theater's programming dramatically. The core of The Assembly features film screenings with related lectures, interviews, and performances that bring cinema to life. And fans of Mortified, Miz Kitty and live music will be happy to learn that many of the live performances that we've all loved over the years will continue. After all, The Assembly's primary mission -- engaging audiences with events that are both enriching and entertaining -- has few boundaries!
So get your curiosity on and gather with us at The Assembly. There's a lot of world out there.
