Days of the Beer, December 19

The beer for today is Rock Bottom (Denver Downtown) Molly's Titanic Brown Ale.

On December 19, 1997, Titanic was released in theaters. This movie would become the most financially successful movie in U.S. history, grossing about $1.8 billion worldwide.

The film was directed, written, co-produced and co-edited by James Cameron. It features Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. It also has Billy Zane and Kathy Bates (as Molly Brown).

The movie won 4 Golden globes. It tied for most Oscar nominations in history, at 14. It won 11 Oscars.

As to the beer:

Rock Bottom is a chain and has locations in 15 states. Each restaurant has a brewmaster and each produce their own beer. Molly's Titanic Brown Ale is available at several of the Colorado locations.

Unsinkably malty, Molly’s Titanic Brown Ale draws its inspiration from the classic brown ales of England. A multi-dimensional beer finely balanced between the malt flavor and hops. Imbibe, whole-heartedly with one of our big, juicy steaks.
So, for the biggest grossing film of all time (so far), if you can get to a Colorado Rock Bottom, have a Molly's Titanic Brown Ale.
