Days of the Beer, November 4

The beer for today is Seabright Brewery, Cobra Kai Rice Beer.

On November 4, 1961, Ralph George Macchio was born. He is best known for his role as Daniel LaRusso in the Karate Kid series.

His first major movie role was with C. Thomas Howell, Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, and Matt Dillon in The Outsiders. His later films included My Cousin Vinny, Crossroads, and Beer League.

In The Karate Kid, Macchio moves to Los Angeles, and accidentally makes an enemy of Johnny Lawrence (played by William Zabka), who is the start pupil of the Cobra Kai karate dojo.

Eventually Ralph wins.

As to the beer:

Seabright Brewery is located in Santa Cruz.

Surfers, collegiate types and young families converge in this popular Santa Cruz brewery for some upscale pub grub and a stellar selection of award-winning beers. Whether seated on the outdoor patio or in one of their comfy, inviting booths, the cheerful, veteran staff is always 'on' and delivers everything with a smile. Regulars line up for weeknight specials like Neighborhood Night Tuesdays with all night happy hour and free live music on Fridays. Just a short walk up from the water, a visit to Seabright is the perfect way to cap off a day at the beach.
Cobra Kai Rice Beer appears to be a seasonal brew and isn't listed on their website.

So, if you are around Santa Cruz, and want to celebrate The Karate Kid's birthday, go have a Cobra Kai Rice Beer, it's 4% ABV, so it won't kick your ass too bad.
