The film follows Carol Danvers, who is based on the Marvel Comics character Captain Marvel. The film shows Danvers (Larson) as she becomes Captain Marvel and an intergalactic dust up between two alien races, the Kree and the Skrull. The film is epic in its scope, packed with action, and special effects, with a story that takes full effect of the rich history of Marvel. Larson, Mendelsohn, Bening, and Law all give great performances.
The Beer Lover’s Guide To The Movies pairs this film with Elysian Brewing’s Space Dust IPA. This India Pale Ale has an ABV of 8.2%. This pours a hazy orange with a good thick head. You get the aromas of orange, grapefruit, and pine. It tastes of tropical and citrus fruits, with a touch of pine and pleasant bitterness at the end. It has a medium mouth feel to it and is a bit on the dryer side. This is a classic! I picked this beer to watch Captain Marvel with because this is the beer you want drink as you watch this intergalactic dust up. You will enjoy the beer as she literally travels the universe to protect the ones in need.
