TACOMA PREFUNK MONDAY, JULY 3 2017: Gigantic Kölschtastic and the sexy thriller

PREFUNK: Kölsch is made with ale yeast and is fermented warm, yet commonly aged at colder temperatures, making it a hybrid between the lager and the ale. That’s fantastic. No, wait! That’s Kölschtastic! That’s what Gigantic Brewing calls its Kölsch and it’s every bit the truth. What makes the Portland, Oregon’s Kölsch stand out is the use of whole leaf hops in the Gigantic hop back, lending hop flavor without the bitterness usually associated with this style. German pilsner malt enters the mash tun, and it’s fermented with a German ale yeast that produces some of the fruity character of an ale, with a clean lager-like profile. Peaks and Pints has Kölschtastic in our Coolertastic! Peaks and Pints, Tacoma

2, 4:15, 6:30 and 8:40 P.M. THE BEGUILED: Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled is an ambitious remake of a 1971 cult classic directed by Don Siegel and starring Clint Eastwood (the two also made Dirty Harry that year). The story unfolds during the Civil War, at a Southern girls’ boarding school. Its sheltered young women take in an injured enemy soldier. As they provide refuge and tend to his wounds, the house is taken over with sexual tension and dangerous rivalries, and taboos are broken in an unexpected turn of events. For audiences unfamiliar with the original, this may become the sexy, creepy thriller to see this summer. The Grand Cinema, Tacoma

9 P.M. NORTH BY NORTH: Chicago garage duo North By North’s surf-inspired rock and roll conjures images of catching waves off the Hawaiian coast all day before chasing the sun and sand with a swanky cabaret-club nightcap. Their uncanny ability to blend blues, surf and cabaret into a heady rock and roll stew has scored them shows with Eagles of Death Metal, Tegan & Sara, Nikki Lane, Wussy and others. Catch them tonight with Stop Don’t Stop and Mud On My Bra. The Valley, Tacoma
