CLEVELAND — You can get together and have a few laughs at the Great Lakes Brewing Company for a special “Die-Hard”-themed holiday Brewmaster's Dinner on Dec. 14.

If you love beer and action movies, particularly “Die Hard,” you’ll want to reserve your tickets to this one-night event on Dec. 14 at 6:15 p.m. Nakatomi Tower was unavailable; the event will be at GLBC's tasting room in Cleveland.

The 1988 movie is about a New York City Police Department officer who tries to save his wife and others taken hostage by German terrorists at a Christmas party in Los Angeles.

Not only is it considered one of the best action movies of all time, but it’s also considered one of the best Christmas movies, which is a festive debate you’re likely to have at the themed dinner event.
