SF Docfest presents Brewmaster
Thursday, May 31 - 8pm
SF DocFest Opening Night Film & After Party
In 1998 there were less than 1,500 breweries in the United States - now there are over 7,000. Brewmaster tells the story of the rise of craft beer through two young men pursuing their dreams in the world of beer. Drew is a New York lawyer who wants to start his own brewery. He uses every free moment to make this a reality while preparing for a pitch with a potential investor. Brian, an ex-telemarketer, is studying to become a Master Cicerone - the beer equivalent of a sommelier - which requires taking a test only 13 people have ever passed.Helping tell the story of beer are some of the best-known personalities in the craft beer community including Sam Calagione, John and Jen Kimmich, Garrett Oliver, Jim Koch, Vaclav Berka, Ray Daniels, Charles Papazian, Rob Tod and Randy Mosher.
Brewmaster creates a cinematic portrait of beer, those who love it, those who make it and those who are hustling to make their mark.
Join SF DocFest after the screening for a mini beer-fest with an opportunity to sample 10+ delicious craft and import beers and cider while grooving to tunes by Radio Valencia DJs and nibbling some tasty pizzas from DNA Lounge and Patxi.
SF DOCFEST runs May 31 - June 14, 2018. For a full list of festival showings and theaters, please visit sfindie.com.
