The American Brew Comes to DVD


In the last thirty years, microbreweries have taken off in terms of popularity, becoming real competitors to the old guard of the industry like Miller, Anheuser-Busch and Coors.

As part of its Here's to Beer campaign to promote the beverage, Anheuser-Busch commissioned the Emmy and Peabody award-winning documentarian Roger Sherman to make The American Brew, a 2007 film chronicling beer's history in America. The film is produced by Florentine Films, which Sherman founded in 1976 with fellow filmmakers Ken Burns and Buddy Squires.
