Odds and ends

Catching up on some items of interest that for some reason or another I haven’t commented on yet.

  • Beer Wars: The Movie. Everyone and his dog has been talking this up, and despite the something this looks like an interesting documentary on the rise of craft beer.

    Director Anat Baron takes you on 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.

    The movie will be screening nationwide for one night only, on April 16th.

  • Philly Beer Week kicks off tomorrow, March 6, and runs through the 15th. There’s more events going on than any one person could ever hope to attend, but Philadelphia’s is the place to be for the next week.
  • This weekend in Portland is the Lucky Lab Barleywine & Big Beer Fest. With some 43 big—and I mean big—beers on tap, that’s pretty hardcore. Takes place at their Beer Hall in NW Portland. Admission is free but it’s $1.75 for a four ounce taster.
