Tonight, take in the Brooklyn premiere of ‘Beer Wars,’ director Anat Baron’s investigation into the politics and power plays of the American beer industry, where big companies (like Anheuser-Busch, pre-InBev purchase) and little companies (like Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, whose founder is featured in the film) battle it out for market share. (Baron’s insight is unique: She’s the former General Manager of Mike's Hard Lemonade.)
Of course, it would be just cruel to have you sit through a full-length feature documentary about beer and not serve you any; luckily, Bell House is hosting a special edition of its brew-and-curds tasting series Flight Club to coincide with the screening. In addition to the movie ticket, your $20 ticket gets you a sampling of four craft beers (from some of the breweries featured in the film) paired with Murray's cheeses. Post-screening, Brooklyn Brewery’s Garrett Oliver (who also shows up onscreen) will talk about his own experience with brewing small in a big industry.
