Beer Wars

Viewed: 21 April 2010
Directed by: Anat Baron
Listed in: Movies, Netflix

Beer Wars documents the brewing business, pitting the rise of craft brewers versus Anheuser Busch, Coors and Miller. The documentary is informative, highlighting aspects of the business that are more obscure, and attempts a rally against Anheuser Busch's anti-trust practices. Though it falls into some common independent documentary traps and Anat Baron's style can be grating. It also misses the mark on Sam Calagione of Dogfishhead story, focusing more attention on fund raising of Moonshot caffeinated beer.
