Craft beer generates tens of billions of dollars annually for the US economy but despite beer’s Egyptian and African heritage Black-owned breweries make upless than 1% of the nearly 9,000 breweries in operation. This delightful and timely documentary, a festival favourite finally reaching Toronto audiences for the very first time, shares the uplifting stories of the Black brewers, brand owners and influencers across the country who are reshaping the craft beer industry and the future of North America’s favorite adult beverage. Eager to shift the historical perception of who makes and drinks beer, these master brewers are creating social change one pint at a time -- with results that are inspiring, innovative and utterly delicious.

Stick around after the film for a special Q&A with director Aaron Hosé and Ren Navarro, the founder of Beer Diversity, a consultancy working to support diversity in the Canadian beer industry.
