The Hops, the Malts and The Barley: A Fundraiser for the Tallgrass Film Association
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 bragging rights and VIP TALLPasses and their "beer cocktail" will be featured as the signature drink at a VIP party during the 12th annual Tallgrass Film Festival in October.)
Attendees will also enjoy complimentary wine, 12 craft beers on tap (and a cash bar featuring signature martinis by Abode), plus, the East Side Humidor’s Cigar Tent, vittles by Olive Tree Catering, the musical stylings of DJ Carbon and of course live-action entertainment with a Tallgrass twist. Dress up, dress down, wear your boots.
Tickets are $80 in advance and $90 at the door. Quantities are limited and advanced purchase is recommended. (For federal income tax purposes, you can deduct $50 as a charitable contribution.)
And, ror one night only, scoop up your 2014 festival VIP TALLPass for just $150! The festival TALLPass includes access to all films, galas, VIP Filmmaker Lounge and VIP events.
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.
