Beer Good, Gov Bad
24 October 2010 | by ed-879-93479See all my reviews

Overall a good movie. I was hoping for a bit more on different micro-brew's, they only focused on a few. The ones they did focus on they did a good job showing their disadvantage.

As a libertarian I have to disagree with the prevailing opinion of the movie. Big Beer isn't evil their competitive. They use their power to leverage government to make it hard for the little guys to compete. With out the government rules I would have Magic Hat in Las Vegas!!! They did show how prohibition killed most of the craft beers.

Worth the time to give it a watch. It does a good job showing how hard it is to get a craft beer off the ground. It does a bad job showing you all the breweries around the country and what they have to offer. Once a micro brew makes it big, their no longer a micro brew.
