Austin Film Society presents Brewmaster
Director Douglas Tirola’s Brewmaster artfully captures the craftsmanship, passion and innovation within the beer industry. The story follows a young ambitious New York lawyer who dreams of becoming a brewmaster and a Milwaukee based professional beer educator as he attempts to become a Master Cicerone. Helping tell the story of beer are some of the best-known personalities in the industry including Garrett Oliver, Jim Koch, Vaclav Berka, Ray Daniels, Charles Papazian 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.
Austin Film Society will have a pre-screening festivities including special releases, blind beer tests with Austin Beerworks, and more. After the film, stick around for a panel discussion with brewers from Austin Beerworks, Pinthouse Pizza, and Jester King. The discussion will be moderated by Arianna Auber, Liquid Austin columnist for the Austin American-Statesman.
