Beer Week: 7 brews that really rock

Beer is often paired with food — sometimes dinner, sometimes cheese or dessert.

At the Ale and the Witch on Monday, it was paired with music.

Dunedin's one-year-old 7venth Sun Brewery chose seven of its beers and asked Clearwater band Between Bluff's to pair them with seven songs.

Some were subtle connections. Others — like a cover of the Beastie Boy's "Intergalactic" with 7venth Sun's Intergalactic Pale Ale — were humorously obvious.

Those participating got a toast-sized glass of beer for each song, and brewery co-owner Devon Kreps explained each beer to the small crowd outside the St. Petersburg brewery.

For the third toast, a Belgian-style golden strong called Belge d'Or, she explained the beer's banana aroma and rich mouthfeel.

The band admitted to not knowing French. "D'Or" made them think of The Doors.

  4. Poorly assembled 'Lego Ninjago Movie' waters down Lego movie franchise

    Movies

    Well, that didn't take long.

    After only three movies, the Lego franchise is already a shadow of its original self, less irreverent and go-for-broke bricky. The watering down of an ingenious formula comes with The Lego Ninjago Movie, the sort we expected all along from plastic construction toys.
