Michigan craft beer embodies the uniquely American spirit of blue collar authenticity combined with innovation and entrepreneurship.

Director Kevin Romeo and Rhino Media Productions from Kalamazoo, Michigan began with a humble idea to produce a film for beer fans and movie fans alike. Starting at rapidly growing Greenbush Brewing Co, the documentary travels the span of Michigan from Sawyer to Marquette and Grand Rapids to Detroit. Visiting brewers like Scott Sullivan, Ryan Sylvester, Eric Kuhnhenn, Joe Short; Hop growers like Brian Tennis, Joel Mulder, Jeff and Bonnie Steinman; Entrepreneurs like Ben Fleckenstein, Michael Kiser and Stephen Roginson.

The Michigan Beer Film celebrates old core values in a new generation of community-conscious consumers and the proliferation of the Michigan craft beer industry. At the same time, the film addresses some challenges that brewers and entrepreneurs encounter in the midst of the industry’s rapid growth.

You can find out more about the documentary and preview the trailer at http://mibeerfilm.com.

    Yes, let's do that. Of course, sitting together is fine, but I'm still focused on the post-viewing beer. :-)

    I'm going to be with my husband, he'll be wearing a tan, wool coat with a horizontal Indian print across the middle. I'm wearing a black coat with a hood so I probably won't stand out.

      I'd like that post viewing beer too! Where should we go maybe Zingermans Roadhouse? http://www.zingermans...­. My husband may be coming along too. We went on a brewery tour to Darkhorse, Bells and Arcadia a few months ago and had a blast!

    After watching this, I'll probably be inspired to go have a beer. If anyone else goes, let me know if you want to meet for a beer.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
