Recently we told you about "Beer Wars," an upcoming documentary film about the foamy politics of the American beer industry. The movie opens on April 16 at a variety of local theaters - check www.fathomevents.com for tickets and locations - and here's something else for you hopheads to consider. Rubicon Brewing Company (2004 Capitol Ave.) will be hosting a "Beer Wars" pre-party, featuring brewery tours and of course, much sipping of suds. Rubicon will pour its own beers along with ales crafted by breweries featured in the film. The festivities start at 4 p.m. For more information: (916) 448-7032.
BTW, speaking of beer, here's my recent article about Sacramento's homebrewing scene.
