Craft Brew Movie On The Way

Beer Wars, a film by Anat Baron, is an upcoming documentary about the battle raging in America between the craft breweries and Bud/Miller/Coors. Most of the big voices in the craft brew movement are represented: Sam Calagione, Jim Koch, Garrett Oliver, Greg Koch, Kim Jordan, Charlie Papazian, Todd Alström, the late Michael Jackson, and many more. Check out the trailer:

So what's the catch? The movie is scheduled as a one-night-only event, showing in theaters nationwide only on April 16th, so you only have one shot to see it (until it's released on DVD). The upside is that the movie will be followed by a live event hosted by Ben Stein and featuring craft brew industry people. Spread the word, buy your tickets in advance (I'm buying mine online today), and bring a friend (or five).
