PEAKS AND PINTS DRAFT HIGHLIGHTS

BADLAM, Matchless Brewing: Brewed for Edison City Alehouse’s fourth anniversary, this peated whiskey barrel-aged barleywine is all about the peat. 12.2%

SKAGITY IPA, Stoup Brewing: Stoup brewed this IPA with Skagit Pilot Pale Ale malt, Triticale malt and Caramel Triticale. Triticale is a wheat and rye hybrid, which gives the beer a full mouth feel with a subdued rye spiciness. It’s dry hopped with Citra and Loral cryo hops to provide citrus and floral aromas. 7.5%

When it comes to barrels, brewers generally agree that the right beer to stand up to the assertive flavors of bourbon is a stout or porter. However, that doesn’t mean they are the best styles for other spirits.

By acquiring RateBeer, AB InBev now owns a treasure trove of data, including the preferences and locations of active and passionate beer drinkers. One corporation now has the power to watch, analyze, predict, and, eventually, create the beers we like by using data many of us volunteered willingly under different circumstances.

Earlier this month, Bella Thorne was making all kinds of headlines for appearing to wash her hair with beer. An Instagram video followed, and Bella’s 19 million followers were treated to a skimpy bikini video confirming the rumor – Bella does, indeed, wash her hair with beer.

If you’ve ever sat around and thought “Hey, I could go drink for drink with Jason Momoa,” Rob McElhenney as a suggestion for you: don’t. Taking to Instagram , the It’s Always Sunny star shared an image with Momoa, warning his followers to go “beer for beer” with the Aquaman star. “If you value your life,” McElhenney shared with the picture, taken at a gala of some sort. “Don’t try to go beer for beer with this man.” Momoa was then sure to include a not-so-family-friendly hand gesture to complete the ultimate party pic.

TODAY’S LOCAL STEW

THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT, The Grand Cinema: The story follows a legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr who, decades after serving in WWII and assassinating Adolf Hitler, must now hunt down the fabled Bigfoot. Living a peaceful life in New England, the former veteran is contacted by the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to lead the charge as the creature is carrying a deadly plague and is hidden deep inside the Canadian wilderness. Think of this as an exceedingly solid B-movie — but it does deliver both pulp thrills (killing Hitler! hunting Bigfoot!) and an affecting story about aging, regret, and loneliness. 2 and 6:45 p.m., $5.50-$8, 606 S. Fawcett, Tacoma
