An inside look at the world of craft beer.

Tirola explores the rise in popularity of craft beers over the past two decades in this ode to hops and barley. The film surveys numerous established brewmasters about what they’ve love about the beverage and how they got started in the field, offering some historical context, but is more interesting in its focus on two younger amateurs who have become obsessed with homebrewing: Drew, a lawyer dreaming of opening his own brewery, and Brian, who is studying to pass the notoriously challenging Master Cicerone exam. While viewers not particularly into the drink may not respond to the film with quite as much passion, beer lovers will find much to appreciate.
