Brewmaster tells the story of the rise of craft beer through two young men pursuing their dreams in the world of beer. Drew is a New York lawyer who wants to start his own brewery. He uses every free moment to make this a reality while preparing for a pitch with a potential investor. Brian, an ex-telemarketer, is studying to become a Master Cicerone - the beer equivalent of a sommelier - which requires taking a test only 13 people have ever passed.Helping tell the story of beer are some of the best-known personalities in the craft beer community including Sam Calagione, John and Jen Kimmich, Garrett Oliver, Jim Koch, Vaclav Berka, Ray Daniels, Charles Papazian, Rob Tod and Randy Mosher. Brewmaster creates a cinematic portrait of beer, those who love it, those who make it and those who are hustling to make their mark. Join us after the screening for a mini beer-fest with an opportunity to sample 10+ delicious craft and import beers and cider while grooving to tunes by Radio Valencia DJs and nibbling some tasty pizzas from DNA Lounge and Patxi's Pizza.

What we're about

The San Francisco Bay Area is host to many of the best and most unique beer producers in the country. Some are considered mirco-breweries, only producing enough fermented beverage for their customers, while others produce for an international audience.

Beer Socials is dedicated to a wide variety of beer tasting activities including;

* Brewery touring and beverage sampling

* Beer Socials

* Private tastings

* Beer festivals

* And much more

Each month, Beer Social participants will have the opportunity to join beer activities designed specifically to taste beer, ale or other unique fermented beverages. Event host/organizers are welcome.
