“Come on in you f*&%kers, Ol’ Painless is waiting.” The brewers at Falling Knife (which recently took over the Northgate space) left off the first part of the quote about a big gun from delivered by future MN governor Jesse Ventura in the sci-fi action Arnold classic Predator for the name of their new beer, an 11% English barley wine. Grab a sample or a full bottle for their first ever bottle release just in time for Thanksgiving, follow it with a bunch of BBQ (“If it smokes, we can eat it”?), and watch the highly quotable film at the release party, too. Wednesday, November 27th, 5 PM. Free. —Art Humes
