About the film

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 struggles to chase his American dream 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.
