Presented by Anchor Brewing Company and San Franpsycho, hosted at the historic Balboa Theater, San Francisco, CA:

Join us for a unique, one-night-only film and beer pairing event featuring Elf! A $25 ticket includes the film and three beer tickets. Additional beer tickets available for purchase.

Beer selection will include three unique one-time-only beers inspired by the movie:
Seven Levels of Candy Cane Forest and Swirly-Twirly Gum-Drops Weisse
Berliner Weisse infused with real candy-canes and gumdrops for a fruity and peppermint-y swirl of flavors. The sweetness and minty notes of this light, refreshing, tart treat are just what Buddy the Elf craves after kicking ass in a snowball fight.

World’s Best Cup of Coffee Porter
“You did it! Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee!” We took the best cup of coffee we could find in SF (from 4 Barrel Coffee) and blended it into a rich, malty porter. This is literally the best cup of Coffee Porter you’ve ever had and it’s perfect for drinking before, during, and after making snow angels, ice skating, eating cookie dough, and snuggling.

Spaghetti & Maple Syrup Imperial Christmas Ale
We took Buddy the Elf’s favorite meal of spaghetti soaked in maple syrup and added it to an Imperial Christmas Ale to create this delectable treat of malty goodness and sweet, delicious alcohol. It is a smooth and silky treat that even angry elves would enjoy.

San Franpsycho will be live printing free posters of a limited holiday design for the first 25 attendees, as well as garments throughout the evening. While blank shirts will be available for sale ($25), bring your own light colored garment for a discounted print ($10)!
