For the Love of Beer Movie Screening
Sunday, October 28th

Roosevelt Square, $5

$5 gets you a beer, snacks and a chance to see this amazing movie with some local brewers.

 
Join us at our Do Something Reel film festival screening of The Love of Beer.
 
Limited seating for 20 so RSVP today
 
About the movie:
When someone thinks of a brewer, they probably don’t picture a petite woman with red pigtails. But with Tonya Cornett’s amazing beers and growing collection of medals, things may change. From farm to consumption, women are fighting their way to become some of the most influential people in the craft beer world. Based in the Pacific NW, The Love of Beer follows these inspirational women as they struggle to end stereotypes, handle their rising fame, and raise families in a 21 and over lifestyle. They’re not doing it for feminism or equality—they’re doing it for the love of beer.
