The Beer Lover’s Guide to the Movies pairs this film with Big Block Brewery’s “The Boss” Honey Pale Ale. This beer has an ABV of 7.0%. You get hints of citrus and floral notes. It tastes the same as it smells with a hoppiness added to it. This is a small batch beer and only available on-tap, or for you to take home in a growler from their two taprooms in Redmond and Sammamish, Washington. I realize that Wasps do not make honey, but it did remind me about this great beer when I was thinking of beers to go with this film. You must do your homework before hand to enjoy this beer because it is harder to find. The film you can enjoy without watching “Ant-Man” but if you do your homework and view it, it is better. So, if you do your homework the film and beer become a great combination.
