Waterline Brewing Company, fondly regarded as the brewery under the bridge, is now hosting a movie night on Thursdays. Local blues legend, Randy McQuay, is the host. “He calls the new series a ‘passion project’ meant to feed his soul and yours,” according to taproom manager Maria Speaks.
It’s the building itself that brought McQuay to Waterline. He used to have a studio in the Art Factory, which shares a building with Waterline. “It’s a pretty magical building,” says Speaks.
Rob Robinson, owner-operator of Waterline Brewing, and McQuay have been in talks about this for quite some time. They thought it would be good to test out in the slower, cooler months when people are more keen on spending time inside.
McQuay is trying to keep it light-hearted, selecting fun movies like The Big Lebowski and Blues Brothers. “He’s trying to provide a fun evening for all demographics,” according to Speaks.
But don’t worry, McQuay isn’t giving up slinging tunes. You can still find him crooning in the taproom on a fairly regular basis.
