Denver based Free Mind Productions has created ‘Beer Culture the Movie,’ premiering July 8th, 2011 at Upslope Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado.
Beer Culture the Movie is a feature length documentary explaining the cultural phenomena behind the American craft beer movement. The movie utilizes the great beer state of Colorado telling stories of the struggles and successes of some of the state’s top breweries and to ultimately show consumers how the craft beer industry is a driving force in the economic growth of America.
Colorado’s craft beer industry is unique and key showing the impact the beer industry is able to make on the economy. Colorado’s liquor laws were originally adopted to keep the mob out of liquor sales—today, the states liquor laws keep big business out of the small, independent liquor retail market. These laws have shaped the thriving beer culture that is alive, supported, and constantly growing in the state. Beer Culture the Movie used Colorado to show how the American dream is still being achieved, how supporting small business begets a healthy economy and how vitally important it is to not underestimate the power of supporting the American Craft Beer Industry.
Beer Culture the Movie is written and directed by filmmaker Thomas Kolicko and this is his first feature length film. It is his commentary on how an individual can help better the American economic situation.
