Craft Beer: A Hopumentary Featuring Small Batch Brewers
This short documentary explores the rise of craft beer makers in San Francisco.
American beer lovers who seek variety have started brewing their own beers, with a few pioneers eventually going commercial. Thus a new movement in American brewing began, focusing on quality over quantity. A pair of filmmakers created a 15-minute documentary about the San Francisco beer movement aptly titled “Craft Beer: A Hopumentary.” The short film offers an in-depth look at the small batch brewing process, as well as explores the rise of craft brewing from the early 80s to 2012 where during that timeframe the number of breweries increased from 100 to 2,300.
