Although Michigan may not have officially claimed the title of Beer State U.S.A., it certainly feels like it has. In the past decade, vreweries and microbreweries have sprung up all over the place.

For a year and a half, filmmaker Kevin Romeo visited various farms and breweries around Michigan to gather perspectives and insights from people working in the industry. "The film's really about entrepreneurship and job creation, and people doing what they love," Romeo told Beer Advocate. "... So making beer is like giving them a kind of vocational fulfillment."

Romeo and his fellow filmmakers visited Bell's Brewery, North Peak, Dark Horse, Founders and many others, as well as the farms that grow the hops used in local beer production.
