If you are a fan of all of beer’s magnificent qualities—the tastes, the aromas, the way it trickles down your throat on a hot summer day—then BREWMASTER is your chance to meet some of the men and women who have made the production of beer the sudsy center of their lives. From home brewers who use their stoves to some of the biggest names in the business, this documentary is a behind-the-scenes look at how some of our favorite beers began. The film follows aspiring brewmasters, too, such as a NYC law clerk looking to fulfill his dream of turning pro and a beer educator studying to be one of just a dozen Master Cicerones in the world. With portraits of the artistry and dedication it takes to create our favorite beverages, BREWMASTER is a unique opportunity to meet those lucky folks who love what they do and do what we love. When you’re living the dream, every hour is happy hour. —T.W.
