//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\

The pure products of the US go briefly, unnervingly crazy in The Fits, a terrific rites-of-passage drama that charts an outbreak of mass hysteria inside a Cincinnati sports centre. Full credit to debut director Anna Rose Holmer for wringing the maximum mileage from a paltry $170,000 (£13,600) budget. Restricting herself to a single location and its immediate surrounds, she whips up a quiet storm of everyday horror; an allegory of adolescence, crawling with existential dread. 

Despite its short running time, The Fits refuses to be rushed. It strolls at length through the Lincoln’s echoing interiors, immersing us in a tightly ordered hierarchy where the princesses hold court beside the bathroom sinks and the boys scrap over pizza slices in the carton on the floor. But the tension builds and it finally breaks cover. Legs (Makyla Burnam), one of the older dancers, suffers a violent convulsion and is hospitalised overnight. When the glamorous Karisma (Inayah Rodgers) follows suit, her fellow dancers scurry to film the incident on their phones. And then, in the midst of a rehearsal, Maia (Lauren Gibson) suddenly arches her back and stares blindly at the ceiling. An outsider might conceivably mistake Maia’s agonised posture for some complex bit of choreography, but the Lionesses know better. Perhaps they know more than they can quite put into words.

Like Alfred Hitchcock before her, Holmer realises that a threat is most frightening when it wafts in at random, when it can’t be explained.

About the short:

“No Sleep No Breaks,” shot mainly throughout East Austin, is about two best friends headed to record their first studio session. This moment has been long overdue. Will their dreams be realized?

From the director: “I'm a native Austinite and have seen the many changes in East Austin. I along with my producers of the film are paying homage to East Austin with our film. I grew up in East Austin and our short film depicts the East Austin that we know. We feel that it is important for people to see the other side of East Austin, such as Givens Park, Mr. Catfish, Booker T Apartments. Our film is an attempt to share our experiences with the old and newcomers of Austin, TX.”

HFC Presents: Appropriate Behavior

APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR
Directed by Desiree Akhavan
2014

7pm – doors // drinks // live set – DJ Ariel Lagunas
8pm – “We Are Artists” with director B.B. Araya
815pm – APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR

Beverages provided by our most excellent friends at 4th Tap Brewing Co-op

PART ~SIX~ of ~SEVEN~

//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\

The feature debut of Desiree Akhavan, “Appropriate Behavior,” opens with the writer/director/star casually carrying a strap-on dildo down a Brooklyn street. Therein lies both the irony that makes the title so humorous and the thesis statement of her film: Akhavan is going to take her sexuality and walk it down the street for all to see—but in a cool, funny, casual way, with a healthy dose of irreverent self-awareness. Akhavan stars as Shirin, a bisexual Brooklynite going through a devastating breakup with her girlfriend Maxine. She’s also underemployed and almost magnetically drawn to the ridiculous situations that make living in a big city both exciting and ludicrous. To top it off, Shirin has the added challenge of living up to the expectations of her very particular Iranian-American family.

In the wake of her breakup, Shirin bed-hops, putting the motto “the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else,” to the test. Thus, the film is rife with awkward sexual encounters and experimentation, but that’s not the only view of sex that “Appropriate Behavior” has—there are also moments of truly sexy intimacy, both casual and loving. What the film does so well is show how these two things coexist; how it can turn on a dime from hot to awkward, much like real life. There’s no condemnation or celebration of sex in this film, the sex just exists, in a very normal and healthy way—pleasure, hilarity, disappointment, and all. What this movie is trying to say is, let’s all carry our strap-ons down the street because we want to carry our strap-ons down the street, and we won’t be embarrassed by it.

//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\

This blissfully bonkers whatzit from unclassifiable dance-comedy trio Cocoon Central Dance Team is part psychotropic performance art spectacle, part absurdist sketch show. The three Bing Bongs—Tallie Medel, Sunita Mani & Eleanore Pienta—lounge about, pass gas, and periodically break into wondrously strange dance routines, with outer space interludes, a serious consideration of doctor boners, and a 90s-style girl group meltdown along the way. It all plays like a live action cartoon piped in from a cotton-candy-colored alternate universe.

Piña Co-opa

This is the second beer released in our Tiki beer series. Piña Co-opa takes inspiration from, you guessed it, the Piña Colada. We started with a malt forward base beer that we aged for 8 weeks in St. Croix rum barrels to extract all of the oak, vanilla and molasses flavors from the wood. Next we re-fermented the beer with over 250#s of pineapple puree and a mound of coconut flakes. Finally we added just a touch of lactose sugar to bring out the sweetness of the coconut and turn this into a spitting image of the classic island beverage.

PART ~TWO~ of ~SEVEN~

//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\

The past looks a lot like the present in “Advantageous,” a science-fiction fantasy in a deliberately subtle key. It’s set in the near future and big-city life appears to hum along very much as it does now, what with the digital billboards and soaring glass-and-metal towers and despite the occasional zippy, low-moving aircraft. The director Jennifer Phang never explains who’s piloting those sleek flying discs or setting off the periodic explosions that scarcely rock this world. The most urgent concerns for Gwen (Jacqueline Kim) throb out a familiar beat: child, career, enough water to live. 

For some time, she has served as a spokeswoman for the bland-sounding Center for Advanced Health and Living, one of those creepy medical technology outfits vibrating with menace that suggest untold horrors, both scientific and bureaucratic. There, a couple of crypt-creepers, Fisher (James Urbaniak, excellent) and Isa (Jennifer Ehle, perfect), murmur and scheme, primarily about Gwen and a new procedure, seemingly solely for women, that will change their faces, bodies and perhaps souls.

Too often, contemporary science-fiction movies are just thrillers pumped up with special effects and the latest in zap-gun futurology. Big-wow explosions and franchise brands tend to matter more than ideas in these tricked-out action flicks, especially in the shiniest, priciest major-studio releases. Every so often, though, a small-scale, thoughtful movie like “Advantageous” comes along and summons up a speculative new world with brains, some frugal sleight of hand and the cool confidence that, in the future, our greatest threat won’t be rampaging robots or alien invasions but the same hard-charging menace that’s haunted the planet since time immemorial — people.

Who will be the COSMIC CHAMPION?!

Season 9: An Honest Day's Prayer

Reading from his new volume, An Honest Day’s Prayer, Nathan Brown offers prayer-like poems of hope, healing, and gratitude – often laced with a strong dose of humor – for the people that matter most to us, the state of our world, and some of the ordinary and extraordinary things that make life worth living. Pianist Carla McElhaney provides reflective, curated musical responses to Nathan’s readings by composers who frequently appear on her KMFA Night Music playlist, including Ola Gjielo, Peter Maxwell Davies, Federico Mompou, Erik Satie, Philip Glass, and more.

“Healing requires a sacred algebra,
a ganja science with no hypotheses
or pie charts to explain how to free
the striving and dread-locked soul.”

4th Tap Anniversary: II

Year two is coming to a close, better throw a party! Help us celebrate the SEQUEL year and help us prep for a TRILOGY. Yes - movie jokes. We got 'em. 

Join us on 11/11 - to celebrate 4th Tap's 2nd anniversary!

We're bringing a whole new CAST of beer releases for this RED CARPET event! SPOILERS AHEAD!

*cough* fine, fine, fine. We'll stop.

SPECIAL RELEASES:

- Whiskey Barrel-aged Lawgiver: Remember that Russian Imperial Stout we releasesd right in the middle of June? Well, we aged a bit in whiskey barrels from our friends over at Banner Distilling, one of which we served up at our Alamo Drafthosue screening of Dredd. The other few we're saving for special events over the next few years, special events like our second anniversary.

- Firkin Bar! We will have four firkin's on site, starting at 1pm with:
Strawberry Vitality - Blonde w/ Cardamom
Bourbon & Oak the Upside Down - Brown Ale

We will tap 2 more special firkins at 5pm, or as soon as we drain the first two firkins.

- R&D Pilot Batches! So many pilot batches! These are each a single or double corney batch on our small pilot system to test out new ideas, recipies, ingredients, or techniques. Releases schedule:

2pm - Black Lodge
Black IPA
ABV: 6.5%
10 oz./$5
Existing in a stylistic extra-dimensional space, this medium bodied IPA has subtle roasted notes and a rich chocolate / citrus character.

4pm -Cowboy Behop
Cryo-Hopped IPA
ABV: 7%
10 oz./$5
A jazzy space-noir of tropical hops. Finished entirely with Cryo Citra and Cryo Mosaic hops this IPA has a smooth, almost creamy finish, with an upfront horn blast of tropical hops.

6pm -Snaggletooth
Session Porter
ABV: 3.5%
16 oz./$5
Full in body, but low in alcohol, this bready Porter has a full depth of malt character and subtle coffee notes. A great beer to keep a cool Fall night going.

8pm -Run PB&J
Peanut Butter Amber Wheat
ABV: 5.5%
10 oz./$5
A literal peanut butter sandwich in a glass. Toasted malts create a gentle bread crust character while delicate sweet malts balance out a liberal addition of peanut butter.

Garbo's Lobster Truck ATX
The Hot Box Diner

Live Music in the Brewhouse:
Brian Wolff and Brett Montgomery Winning 2pm-5pm
The Selfless Lovers 6pm-8pm

We will have a Photo Booth onsite for the event so you can take home a FREE commemorative photo.

As we go into our third year, we just want to say "THANK YOU!" Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support what we do at 4th Tap. We truly appreciate every time you enjoy a pint in our taproom, open a can in your home, and tap a keg at your business. You allow us to do what we love EVERY SINGLE DAY. We can't thank you enough...but we can throw a damn good party.

  • Google Calendar ICS

After a couple of months of aging, it is now time to set our little Island Baby free. 
This beer was born out of inspiration from a tiki drink and has finally come to fruition in this tropical, complex cocktail of a beer. 

Island Baby is the first release in our tiki inspired beer series. 
We took a malt forwad, 9% ABV base beer and then aged in St. Croix rum barrels for 7 weeks allowing all of the molasses, oak and caramel flavors to be imparted. We then re-fermented this base beer with pineapple, passionfruit and pomegranate juice to give it a ton of fruity tropical notes with a slight acidity to balance it out. 
Enjoy a glass of this beer and instantly be transported to your favorite island wearning cheap sunglasses, open toed shoes and way too little sun screen. 

9.1% ABV 22 IBU
