Ever dreamed of wearing your housecoat in public? Thanks to our friends at Vancouver Brewery Tours, fans of the cult classic movie The Big Lebowski will get their chance at the Second Annual Big Lebowski Brewery and Bowling Tour on May 6 from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm.
This unique tour includes Lebowski-inspired craft beers, or “oat sodas” at each brewery stop. Starting off at Callister Brewing, an all-new trivia contest will be held in the brewery that will separate the little Lebowskis from the big Lebowskis.
Next down the line is Storm Brewing for the judging of the costume contest and more Lebowski-inspired ales. The tour will wrap up at Grandview Lanes Bowling Centre, where participants had better hope their toes don’t go “over the line” in their bid to strike it big as the day’s bowling champ.
Prizes will be awarded throughout the day with the winner of the trivia contest taking home the coveted custom made Big Lebowski growler designed by Sigil and Growler. Prizes will also be handed out for best costume.
As with all of Vancouver Brewery Tours’ public and private tours, the Big Lebowski Brewery and Bowling Tour includes pick-up and drop-off from Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver as well as transportation to and from each of the breweries in a comfortable 14-passenger van.
During the ride, guests will enjoy a selection of songs culled from The Big Lebowski soundtrack — everything except The Eagles, of course.
A limited number of seats to the Big Lebowski Brewery and Bowling Tour are available for $79.99 plus tax per person. All beer and bowling is included in the cost of the tour. Seats may be booked online, via phone (604.318.2280) or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About The Big Lebowski
The Big Lebowski is a 1998 American noir “stoner comedy crime drama” written, produced and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, starring Jeff Bridges as Jeffrey ‘The Dude’ Lebowski, a slacker and devoted bowler living in Los Angeles. After he’s assaulted as a result of mistaken identity, The Dude learns of the intended victim – a millionaire who shares the same name. When the millionaire Lebowski’s trophy wife is kidnapped, he commissions The Dude to deliver the ransom for her release, but the plan inevitably goes awry when The Dude’s friend, Walter Sobchak (played by John Goodman), schemes to get his hands on the cash. Although not a box office success when first released, The Big Lebowski has since ascended to cult status with legions of loyal fans around the globe.
