Coney Island Lager and Albino Python
Coney Island Lager & Albino Python from Shmatlz Brewing

A classic circus behind-the-scenes drama from 1932 was suggested by our good friend Jeff the Midget (Black Caverns) who says “It is awesome and also my favorite movie of all time!”. It’s a movie we’ve each seen before, but never with the idea of giving it an in-depth review after a few strong beers. To be clear though, this is not a circus movie, but a 1932 reality show of what happens when a normal tries to take advantage of a freak. It’s black & white and just over an hour, so go watch it, then come back and listen to us talk about it.

Going with a Circus / Sideshow theme, we picked out 2 Coney Island beers to pair with this movie. First a Coney Island Lager and then a slight stronger Coney Island Albino Python.
