Despite the economic downturn currently in America, a new and exciting industry is on the rise. CRAFTING A NATION features breweries, small businesses and individuals that are growing because of the rise in the American craft beer movement. They're not only creating unique and American-made beer, but also jobs, tax revenue, and drive that cannot be stopped for creating a better tomorrow. 

This documentary follows several of the key players in the industry as well as many breweries that are only known within their communities. The characters that we follow in this film all display a common thread of creating a product that stands for something while maintaining true to their local roots.
