A fun and hoppy documentary that feels like it was brewed just for Milwaukeeans, Brewmaster documents the incredible rise of the brewing industry in recent years—from less than 1,500 breweries nationwide in 1998 to over 7,000 today. Follow the passion and innovation at work within the industry, from tiny small-batch home brewers to some of beer's biggest names. Not to mention a Milwaukee-based man studying to become a Master Cicerone— beer's equivalent to a sommelier—a test less than 20 people have ever passed.
