The Departed is a 2006 American crime film directed by Martin Scorsese and written by William Monahan. This movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Wahlberg. It is a remake of the 2002 film Infernal Affairs from Hong Kong. This movie follows a Police Officer that goes undercover to infiltrate Boston’s Irish Mob, while a member of the Mob goes undercover to infiltrate Boston’s Police Department. It is great cinema! The film it was based on was nominated by the Academy of Motion Pictures for Best Foreign Language Film, and it has spawned two sequels. This film won an Oscar for Best Picture.
The Beer Lover’s Guide To The Movies pairs this film with Samuel Adams Boston Lager. This beer is a Vienna Lager with an ABV of 5%. It is a copper colored beer with a nice white head. It has a sharp grassy aroma, and tastes of Malt, bread, and is slightly bitter. I chose this beer because it is also undercover. Samuel Adams Boston Lager was once made in Boston, but now is made in the state of New York. This Boston Beer is really a New York Beer that is undercover.
