About the event
Craft beer generates tens of billions of dollars annually for the U.S. economy. Despite beer’s Egyptian and African heritage, these traditions have been mostly forgotten and are rarely found in American brewing culture. Today, Black-owned breweries make up less than 1% of the nearly 9,000 breweries in operation. Eager to shift the historical perception of who makes and drinks beer, Black brewers, brand owners and influencers across the country are reshaping the craft beer industry and the future of America’s favorite adult beverage.
We invite you to gather with us for the Chicago premiere of One Pint At A Time at Metropolitan Brewing. Director, Aaron Hosé and Executive Producer, Brigitte Hosé will digitally join us and share a few words in advance of the screening. Select beers from Funkytown Brewery and The Stroll beer produced by Haymarket Brewing with Sam Ross and Jay Westbrook (the Black Beer Baron) will be available for purchase.
This event is free and registration is not required. Screening will take place in the Metro taproom - get there early to get a seat! Discussion and screening will begin promptly at 7pm. Movie running time is 88 minutes.
