North Peak Brewing Company Sponsors Free Screening of Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez Movie “The Way”

Viewing set for Wednesday, October 12 at 7pm - Michigan Theater, Downtown Ann Arbor

North Peak Brewing Company invites the public to enjoy a bottle of its Wanderer Session IPA, while enjoying a free screeing of the new movie “The Way” – starring Marting Sheen and Emilio Estevez, who also directs this poingnant film. The screening will be held at 7pm on Wednesday, October 12 at the Michigan Theater in downtown Ann Arbor.

Following the 115-minute film (PG-13), Sheen and Estevez – who will be attending the screening – will answer questions and discuss the film with the audience.

Online reservations are required here. Tickets are limited to the first 300.

"The Way" is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we all face while navigating this ever changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emily Estevez), killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking The Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James.

Rather than return home, Tom decides embark on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey. Along "The Way," Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, each with their own "issues" and looking for greater meaning in their lives: a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen) a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt) who is suffering from a bout of "writer's block."

From the unexpected and oftentimes, amusing experiences along "The Way," this unlikely quartet of misfits create an everlasting bond and Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of the world again. Through Tom's unresolved relationship with his son, discovers the difference between "The life we live and the life we choose".

Written and directed by Emilio Estevez, “The Way” was filmed entirely in Spain and France along the actual Camino de Santiago.

More about the movie

North Peak’s Wanderer
A wonderfully-refreshing Session IPA, brewed with locally-grown hops on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City. Session IPA is an exciting new style, balanced with malt and hop characters with a clean finish. Hopped with Perle, Willamette, Centennial and Citra that give it a citrus and pine finish, Wanderer is rounded out with a generous amount of dry-hopping with Citra hops to fill the nose to give it a light, clean and stimulating body. This combination of full-hop flavor and lower alcohol gives Wanderer a wonderful drinkability, allowing the craft beer drinker to have multiple beers, within a reasonable time period or “session.”

North Peak is part of Northern United Brewing Co., which also encompasses the Grizzly Peak and Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales craft beer brands, as well as the soon-to-be-released Civilized line of spirits.
