"Beer Wars": Coming to a theater near you

Can independent brewers stay afloat while competing with the big dogs of beer? That's the focus of a new documentary titled "Beer Wars," which dives into the politics of the American beer industry and shines a light on brewers who are bent on elevating the craft of beer making. But can they make it?

A special one-night showing of "Beer Wars" will take place on April 16th at six local theaters: Sacramento Stadium 14 (1590 Ethan Way, Sacramento), Laguna 16 (9349 Big Horn Blvd., Elk Grove), Roseville 14 (1555 Eureka Rd., Roseville), Sacramento Downtown Plaza 7 (445 Downtown Plaza, Sacramento), Sacramento Greenback Lane 16 (6233 Garfield Ave., Sacramento) and Natomas Marketplace (3561 Truxel Rd., Sacramento).

The showing will also include a simulcast discussion featuring a panel of brewers and beer experts, with moderation by Ben Stein. For tickets:

In other beer matters, we've got a story on Sacramento's homebrewing scene coming soon. Stay tuned ... in the meantime, pass the popcorn and check out the above preview for "Beer Wars."
