TFA presents, “The Hops The Malts and The Barley,” on Friday, April 11, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at Abode Venue. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Tallgrass Film Association, which fosters an appreciation of the cinematic arts by creating shared experiences around the international medium of film.
The evening includes a beer cocktail competition featuring mixologists from some of Wichita’s favorite watering-holes: The Anchor, Heroes Sports Bar & Grill, Larkspur, The Monarch, Mort’s, Public and Taste & See. Each will create a signature “beer cocktail” with craft beers sponsored by House of Schwan.
The winning mixologist, as voted on by attendees and a team of VIP judges will take home an esteemed trophy, cash prize and their beer cocktail will be featured as the signature drink at a VIP party during the 12th annual Tallgrass Film Festival in October.
Other highlights include The Eastside Humidor’s Cigar Tent, vittles by Olive Tree Catering, and of course live-action entertainment with a Tallgrass twist. Dress up, dress down, wear your boots.
Proceeds from the event will support TFA, a 501(c)3 arts organization, which relies on corporate sponsorship and individual donations to provide funding for year-round cinematic programming, educational events and the annual Tallgrass Film Festival.
