The documentary is a feature-length film about North Carolina craft beer and its influence on the state’s agriculture, community, and economy.
When we started talking about the film in 2011, there were about 60 breweries in North Carolina at the time.
I wrapped Abandoned Allies in 2012, and began pre-production on Brewconomy the same year with Shane Johnstone, a home brewer and the executive producer of the film.
We had an incredible team working on the film. I hope you’ll stay through the credits to celebrate each name on the screen. I’m incredibly grateful for their contributions.
The film premiered at IMAX in Raleigh, N.C., during N.C. Beer Month in 2015. Today there are more than 200 craft breweries registered with the N.C. Craft Brewers Guild. (View a list and map.)
Craft beer is still growing strong in North Carolina.
I’m such a big fan of what’s taking shape here, and feel so grateful for such a strong brewing community in my home state. I hope to attend the screenings to hear what people are saying about the film, and the future of craft beer in North Carolina.
See you there?
