Director Douglas Tirola details the rise of craft beer’s popularity and follows two enthusiasts chasing their American brewing dreams.

Douglas Tirola's Brewmaster captures the craftsmanship, passion, and innovation within the beer industry.

The story follows a young ambitious New York lawyer who struggles to chase his American dream of becoming a brewmaster and a Milwaukee-based professional beer educator as he attempts to become a Master Cicerone.

Helping tell the story of beer are some of the best-known personalities in the industry, including Brooklyn Brewery's Garrett Oliver, Samuel Adams' Jim Koch, and Pilsner Urquell's Vaclav Berka. Brewmaster creates a cinematic portrait of beer, those who love it, those who make it, and those who are hustling to make their mark.
