Event: Beer Wars Movie Screening
This may be a wine blog, but there is not that much separation between appreciation for great wine and appreciation for great craft beer. The craft beer movement faces similar challenges to the wine industry in terms of battling big corporate entities and fighting for fair regulation.
CAMRA BC, a local consumer advocacy group for craft beer is hosting a screening of the movie Beer Wars, a documentary on the battles that the craft brewing community has experienced in the United States. If British Columbia is to join the ranks of the craft beer elite, it needs to learn from the fight of our cousin brewers in the U.S. I should also mention that your ticket price includes the cost of all the beer you wish, being poured by some of BC’s top craft brewers.
Here are the details:
