Craft beer. It’s about independence, it’s about passion, it’s about breaking boundaries, and it’s about—most importantly—great beer. Over the past few years, the demand for craft beer has skyrocketed, putting the big guys like Bud and Miller into a panic over slumping sales. While they responded with big name brands that look like small name craft brewery brands, the true, artisan, craft beer industry is immense and still remains a force to be reckoned with. Yeah, you could call it a craft beer revolution.
And, that’s where Craft, a brand new documentary from filmmaker Craig Noble comes in. First of all, it explores the rise of craft breweries across America. And, it also highlights some of the key players, brewers like Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø of Evil Twin, and beer-visionaries with behind-the-keg peeks at what makes them tick and keeps them producing beer that continues to wow and amaze.
You’ll have your shot at a special screening of this film right at Captain Lawrence Brewery‘s beer garden in Elmsford on 6/4/14 starting at 8:30 pm and going until 11:30. Tickets come to $11.54 (purchase them here) with food and drinks separate. One of the drinks that you’ll definitely need to try (over and over again) is a special Pilot Batch made just for the Craft beer documentary showing and only available that night.
After the movie you’ll be able to meet and talk with Craig Noble (also a certified Cicerone) during a Q&A session. Also on hand is none other than Scott Vaccaro, the owner and brewer of Captain Lawrence Brewing Co. who also has a part in the movie (he comes in around the :10 mark of the preview).
Craft is being shown in limited runs, so you’ll definitely want to hop on over to Captain Lawrence and check it out.
