TACOMA PREFUNK MONDAY, JULY 10 2017: Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux and The Mummy

PREFUNK: In January 1970, Belgian brewery Brasserie Dupont needed a gift to dole out to key clients. Key chains just weren’t going to cut it. Since the brewery produces amazing ales they thought why not gift an ale: Avec Les Bons Voeux, which translates as “with best wishes.” It blew minds. Dupont eventually released it commercially, albeit in limited quantities. A blond ale boasting a hefty 9.5-per-cent alcohol, it pours with a hazy tint and is almost buttery-smooth in texture. There’s mellow fruitiness and yeasty bread flavor at its core, with lively clove and licorice notes folded in, set against a solidly bitter backbone. Avec Les Bons Voeux pours from Peaks and Pints’ Western red cedar tap log. Peaks and Pints, Tacoma

5 P.M. PARKWAY RANDALL: It’s Monday, which means Sir Mix-a-lot Sean Jackson will be filling a Randall with fresh ingredients as his Parkway Tavern disciples froth at the mouth. Tonight, Triplehorn’s Bloodgeon wheat ale infused with blood orange receives the Jackson treatment. Parkway Tavern, Tacoma

7 P.M.: THE MUMMY: Universal has dusted off its classic 1930s movie monsters — Frankenstein, Dracula, Mr. Hyde, et al. — and set up “Dark Universe” to explore their exploits. First out of the spooky shadows is Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy, which begins where any modern story about ancient Egypt does — in 12th-century England. Blue Mouse Theatre, Tacoma
