Logan’s Run Paired With Kirin Ichiban’s Kirin Premium Beer

Logan’s Run is a 1976 science fiction movie that is set in a dystopian future where resources are limited and to maintain a certain quality of life, everyone over the age of 30 is killed.  Logan is a “Sandman” who’s job it is to kill people that “run” away from this society and try to this escape system and live past 30.  The Artificial Intelligence that runs the community sets Logan on a run of his own to find and destroy “Sanctuary” a fabled haven for those that have escaped.  His is aided by Jessica and chased by his former partner Francis.  The film features some great visual effects in which it won a special Oscar for.  It has some good action sequences and presents some fun advanced tech.  The film stars Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Richard Jordan, Roscoe Lee Browne, Farah Fawcett, and Peter Ustinov, and directed by Michael Anderson.  It did well at the box office and spawned a short-lived TV series.  The critics did not embrace the film.

The Beer Lover’s Guide To The Movies pairs Kirin Ichiban’s Kirin Premium Beer with this film.  This beer is an American Lager with an ABV of 5.5%.  It smells uniquely fresh of malt and is a little hoppy.  The beer is not particularly complex or too sweet, tasting a bit dry.  It is a light easy drinking beer.  It goes well with this movie because it is light and easy.  The movie is not particularly complex either, like the beer, and will not take away from the action, the advanced tech presented in the film, and let you get over the spots were the script needs work.
