Badass Giveaway: Check Out The Lineup For Austin’s Off-Centered Film Fest and Win Tickets!

Win tickets to the BLAZING SADDLES Quote-Along Beer Party in Austin!

The 5th annual Off-Centered Film Fest is in Austin this week, and they have a ton of fun planned. The Blazing Saddles Quote-Along Beer Party sounds downright amazing--fifteen local breweries are participating, each bringing two different beers. It'll be an Action Pack joint, meaning cap guns, beans and mechanical bull rides for everyone! The feast also sounds incredible:  a six-course Italian meal paired with eight rare Dogfish Head brews all served during a screening of the epic Once Upon A Time in the West. And the hilarious trio of David Wain, Ken Marino and Joe Lo Truglio will be attending! Read on for the press release and then check out at the bottom where YOU CAN WIN TICKETS to the Blazing Saddles Party!



The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery have teamed up for the 5th Annual “Off-Centered Film Fest”, which features 'off-centered films for off-centered people'! Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Founder and Head Brewer will be your host for each of the events and this year he’s bringing along some of our favorite comedic actors, writers and directors: David Wain (Wanderlust, Wet Hot American Summer), Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer, Wanderlust) and Jo Lo Truglio (Wet Hot American Summer, Superbad) to co-host.


THURSDAY, APRIL 19th – Republic Square Park

The Off-Centered Film Fest will kick off with an outdoor BLAZING SADDLES Quote-Along Beer Party Rolling Roadshow and a medley of craft brews. The Beer Party is getting the Action Pack treatment this year with a quote-along screening complete with subtitles to all the most memorable lines and cap guns to shoot ‘em up with Black Bart and The Waco Kid. Members of the Central Texas brewing community will be out in full force to showcase, and in some cases premiere, their most extreme, rare brews. There are confirmed kegs from (512), Circle, Dogfish Head, Hops & Grain, Jester King, South Austin Beer and Thirsty Planet with even more to come. Each brewery is bringing a special showcase beer that is normally hard to come by including a Cask of Jester King/Mikkeller Beer Geek Rodeo, Ranger Creek's Strawberry Milk Stout and Thirsty Planet's Jittery Monk Smoked Coffee Dubbel! Local non-profit The Texas Craft Brewers Guild will be operating a pie booth filled with the brewmasters behind many of the ales on hand and to top it all off, the event will also feature a mechanical bull! Bring a blanket and/or chair and enjoy a great movie, brew and food under the stars. Gates open at 6:00 PM and the movie will start at sundown.
