Read the full press release below:

Four Pines and Roadshow Entertainment combine to produce a killer brew in celebration of Tarantino’s latest.

To celebrate the home entertainment release of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight (on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital from May 25th), Roadshow Entertainment and 4 Pines Brewing Co. have combined to produce: The Hateful Ale.

Tasting Notes:

The Hateful Ale is a Belgian Tripel, ABV 8% – Pale in colour, the unassuming look of this beer hides a body that has as much kick as a civil war era shotgun. It carries flavours of nut, banana and clove, with a hint of sweetness coming in to play right at the final moment. A Hateful Ale to quench a Hateful Thirst, not for the faint hearted.

The Hateful Ale is on a very limited run. It will be available from May 25th at select venues such as 4 Pines Brew Pub (Manly), 4 Pines Truck Bar (Brookvale) and The Wild Rover, Surry Hills.

Movie Synopsis:

Six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape.

The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Demian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travellers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

The Hateful Eight will be available on Blu-ray (SRP $44.95) and DVD (SRP $39.95) from May 25th. The Hateful Ale will be available at selected venues from May 25th while stock lasts.
