Beer Wars, the Movie

Got this email from Noah recently.

Thought some of you would be interested in this. There's a new documentary called Beer Wars coming out. In the director's words, the movie is a "no holds barred exploration of the U.S. beer industry that ultimately reveals the truth behind the label of your favorite beer. Told from an insider’s perspective, the film goes behind the scenes of the daily battles and all out wars that dominate one of America’s favorite industries." You can check out the trailer and other info here: http://beerwarsmovie.com/

The theater release is being done a little differently. There will be a one-time showing at 400+ theaters across the country at 7 pm on Thursday, April 16 (that's the night after April Beer Club for the chronologically challenged). Apparently the documentary will be followed by a live roundtable discussion of the beer industry hosted by Ben Stein. And, lo and behold, one of the theaters hosting this event is our very own Savoy 16.

I have no idea how quickly tickets for this will sell out, but you can pre-order now on Savoy 16's web site. Here's the link to that: http://www.gqti.com/Theaters.aspx?TheaterID=1476&Date=20090416

Please pass this on to any others you think may be interested.

I've bought two tix.

Here's the list of theaters. If you want to see if it's in a theater near you.

Is this Ben Stein of "Expelled" fame?

I'm pretty sure it's Ben Stein, of Win Ben Stein's Money fame.
