Beer Wars Exposes Dirty Underbelly of Delicious, Refreshing Industry

A new documentary called Beer Wars, a sort of Michael Moore treatment of the beer industry, is screening in New York in a couple of weeks. We’re not sure of the value of the simulcast screening and national discussion with Ben Stein and some independent brewers, but the movie looks compelling. “Almost all our beer now comes from Budweiser, Miller, and Coors. It’s as if all we knew about food we learned from McDonald’s,” says one brewer with a knack for analogy. Put down that bottle and watch the trailer.
