Awesome! Looks like the ribbon cutting would've been fun to attend.

Dead Guy and 4 Dechutes tap handles for people who like local beer??? I would have loved to see some other Oregon beer represented.

KandN said...

Jared,
I guess we need to go enlighten them. Hopefully they'll get the hint. :>)

I am sure they will get more microbrews as they go along. They just need to learn we Oregonians like our local brews...a lot :)

Reid said...

If this is the typical chain we might not see other beers as most chains sign agreements with certain brewers.
But in their defence they do seem to have a slightly better choice at their Washington location..very slightly better.

Please tell us which beers u would like to see at the theatre I am sure they will take it into account...

Anonymous, I would vote for Pale Horse, Seven Brides, Rogue and Wandering Aengus.

Jared said...

I'd add Fort George, there are others I can think of that I'd like to see, but not any that would be amazing sellers. I guess it depends on what their distributor carries.

I second Seven Brides, and even though I'm worn out on Ninkasi I think it could work. Keep Deschutes as well. I gotta dissagree with KandN on Pale Horse. I like Dennis, he's a great guy, but the only beer of his I buy is his blonde, and even then I don't buy it that often. His beers have potential, but I find them lacking in the mouthfeel and hop department.

I'd catagorize Wandering Aengus as a wine.

Hey Jared,
I can see the similarity of hard cider to wine--both using fruit. I was thinking about the 12 ounce bottle of Wandering Aengus' Bloom N and I enjoyed at Word of Mouth and how easy it would be to add it to their beer list. I had no idea the topic could spark a long discussion like this one on Chowhound.
After tasting beer at Rogue this past weekend, I'd love to see their Brutal Bitter, Red Dry Hop or Juniper Pale Ale on tap.

ARRRRGGHH~!!!!!

Cinebarre is the Walmart of theater pubs. Why not visit one of the local places? Northern Lights - or Salem Cinema (don't think they serve beer).

Our economy will never get better in the long run if people keep supporting national chains/Wal-Mart. They provide low wage jobs and ship 92% of your money out of state. No reinvestment. Wal-mart has virtually nil benefits.

Please consider spending your money locally.

Northern lights has a much better selection of beers and is locally owned.

I saw a sign-holder out on Commercial in front of Northern Lights the other day. I hope NL isnt getting nervous.... they shouldnt be. There are many people like myself who dont feel the need to spend top dollar just to see a first-run movie. NL is a real winner, such a great deal, atmosphere and fun time. People are excited because Cinnebarre is new, but I think in the long run NL will see that lots of us are still watching our money/on less income than we're used to.... Northern Light FTW!

Cinebarre is not a walmart type chain. They only have 5 chains nationwide! Thats hardly in comparison to walmarts every 5 miles across the US locations. I have been to NL many many times before Cinebarre and Im sorry I really like Cinebarre much better. I used to like NL but I always disliked their atmosphere. The place was always dirty and the seats hurt. Dont get me started on the old movies. You guys may have more patience than I but when a blockbuster came out that I really wanted to see it was hard to wait 2-3 weeks before they show it. NL's food was not that great, Cinebarre's food is really good. I don't know I guess it just depends on the person.

I like Cinebarre. I love the way they serve popcorn in a bowl like at home; I prefer their food to Northern Lights'; and most important to me, they serve Coke products (I'm a Diet Coke girl; Diet Pepsi tastes nasty to me). I won't stop going to NL if they have movies I want to see, and they are the clear winner on price; but Cinebarre is great, IMO.

Food and beer have always been good at Cinebarre and it's nice to have a theatre near West Salem/Downtown for those of us that don't want to drive to Lancaster our out South.
