The Love of Beer is an intimate portrayal of women who are dedicating their lives to craft beer. From the farm to consumption, these pioneers are fighting stereotypes and changing the way the world views women’s roles. They’re not doing it for equality — they’re doing it for the love of beer. To see the trailer, go to:  http://www.dosomethingreel.com/. Kerry Bryan from Perennial Artisan Ales will be here to sample some of their products and will also share some information about their company, why they decided to go into the craft beer industry and what special attributes you will find in their beers.
