Premier Wine & Spirits launched a monthly interactive beer tasting series in partnership with Penn Cinema on the Wilmington Riverfront and Out & About Magazine around a year ago and the reception of Movies on Tap by the community couldn’t be more encouraging!
“Movies on Tap” features ‘meet-and-greet tasting’ opportunities with some of the area’s most beloved breweries and their brewers while providing a rare opportunity to view cult-classic films on the big screen and all for a good cause – 99% of ticket sales go to Charity of the brewer’s choice.
This unique philanthropic endeavor has not gone unnoticed, as Movies on Tap was awarded 1st Place for Public Service by The Delaware Press Association in its annual 2017 DPA Communications Contest and was a 2017 Blue Ribbon Award Winner (Judge’s Choice) for Community Involvement award presented by DSBC(Delaware Small Business Chamber). So far, Movies on Tap has raised $22,000 for local non-profits.
