There’s about 9,000 craft breweries across the United States alone. The billion dollar industry is one of the great successes of the last few decades. Yet as popular documentaries Crafting a Nation have demonstrated, the landscape is predominantly led by (bearded) male and overwhelming caucasian brewers.
Which is the narrative that ONE PINT AT A TIME is hoping to divert. Following director Aaron Hose’s earlier short films Brewchurch and A Fresh Perspective — examining a modern church-owned brewery and the first-ever Black beer festival respectively — this feature looks at the vast array of African-American brewers breaking barriers across the country.
