About the Movie
BLOOD, SWEAT AND BEER follows a trio of 23-year-olds as they struggle to start The Brew Gentlemen Beer Company in Braddock, hoping their brewery will help this once-prosperous steel town bounce back from decades of neglect, violence, and population loss. The film also tells the emotional story of Danny Robinson, a boardwalk brewery owner and restaurateur whose business is threatened by an aggressive trademark lawsuit that could leave him bankrupt.
An Excellent snapshot of Craft Beer in 2015
The craft beer industry is growing and changing at a breakneck pace and this film does a excellent job at capturing a snapshot of what was happening in late 2014 and 2015. The film interviews many well-known and respected members of the industry and the narrative presented is accurate and hits many of the important issue at hand in the industry today.
Along with the interviews and the insights the film also follows the story of two small breweries, Shorebilly Brewing Company and The Brew Gentleman Beer Company. Incorporating these brewery stories into the film gives it heart.
I was refreshed that I didn't find the facts and details presented in the film as boring or obvious to someone who covers the industry. Also at the same time Blood Sweat & Beer is not a dense knot of inside baseball that casual beer drinkers won't enjoy.
I was presented with a screener copy to evaluate, but I really did like this movie as much as I say.

Great independant film about two microbrew startups
I saw this film at its world premiere at the Washington DC Independent Film festival earlier this year. I found this film enthralling. I suspect everyone did as there was standing room only and they won an award at the end of the festival. I encourage both beer drinkers and non to enjoy this film.
Fun doc to share with friends and a growler
Was able to see this movie at a screening in Minneapolis. This documentary tells a compelling story of folks trying to pursue their dreams—which happen to be brewing beer. The film frames the stories well within the growing craft beer industry. ***Best viewed while enjoying your favorite drink or three.
