The Very Last Blockbuster Store Has Launched Their Own Exclusive Beer

10 Barrel Brewing Company

Everyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s knows that Blockbuster was the coolest place in the world. Every opportunity you'd get, you'd rush down to the video store to search the aisles for your new favorite movie.

You'd always check the new releases first, and if nothing sparked your curiosity, you'd head over to the older movies and search until something looked fun.

It was always the best part of the week, and the fact that there is only one Blockbuster left in the country is kind of heartbreaking.

The last location is located in Bend, Oregon, after all of the Alaskan locations shut down earlier this year. The store has no plans on closing even though all the other stores seemed to fade out, but people wondered how they planned on making money.

Movie rentals aren't exactly the booming business they used to be, but it seems as though they've figured out the perfect solution.

The last Blockbuster location has teamed up with 10 Barrel Brewing Company to create a Blockbuster-themed beer.

That's right, you'll be able to buy a beer that no only features a label that looks like an old VHS case, but it also has some flavors that may remind you of your old movie nights.

If you recall, Blockbuster was a one-stop-shop when it came to getting all the chocolates, licorice and popcorn you needed for your movie night, and this beer takes some of those flavors into consideration.

The Blockbuster beer's name is appropriate and simple, it's called The Last Blockbuster and features a dark ale with hints of cocoa and red licorice.

The brewery released a statement that claims it "pairs perfectly with buttery theater popcorn and your favorite movie-sized chocolate with a light body, smooth finish, and hints of nostalgia."

You'll be able to purchase the beer at the location in Bend, but they will also be releasing it at 10 different 10 Barrel pubs across the country.
