Day 3 of the 11-day all-documentary film festival! NHdocs presents Beers of Joy documentary:
Beers of Joy allows you to feast upon stunning visuals of medieval monasteries, historic German villages, and breweries from across the world that serve as the backdrop for four people immersing themselves in their passion for beer. An acclaimed brewer and a celebrated chef take separate journeys of discovery through Europe and early America, while two Advanced Cicerones attempt to pass the prestigious Master Cicerone exam (think wine’s Master Sommelier), one of the most difficult tests in the world. Historians, scientists, clergy, brewers, and—most importantly—the every man and woman add flavor to this love letter to beer and prove once and for all… life is best celebrated over a beer!
Q&A with Producer Jonathan Hack and co-Director David Swift follows screening, moderated by Rob Leonard and Marty Juliano of the New England Brewing Company.
