User Reviews

 
Enjoyable, but very biased
14 February 2010 | by goodmorning2255See all my reviews

This documentary follows along with Dogfish Head brewery as they are expanding, and the creator of Moonshot beer (beer with caffeine) as she attempts to make her beer successful. This documentary is very one sided, glorifying the little guys and bashing the giants, mostly Anheuser-Busch. The main message seems to be that large corporations have a strong hold on the beer industry, leaving little room for microbreweries have much success.

Even though this movie is very biased and the director/narrator Anat Baron is very obnoxious and gets quite annoying throughout the film, it is still enjoyable to see this insider look at the beer industry. Overall, its interesting, fairly enjoyable to watch, and worth checking out, but it could have been a lot better.
