Open Media Boston viewers will doubtless find this new documentary interesting.
The Boston Area Beer Enthusiasts Society (BABES) is pleased to present the first Bay State screening of The Love of Beer, a documentary celebrating the women at the forefront of the Pacific Northwest beer community. A panel of women in the craft beer industry will follow the film. A total of 1,989 breweries operated for some or all of 2011, of which 1,940 were craft breweries. While the industry is expanding rapidly, growing 13% by volume and 15% by dollars in 2011, women within the industry are a vast minority.
