Southern Circuit: One Pint at a Time (Filmmaker in Attendance!)
Craft beer generates tens of billions of dollars annually for the US economy. Despite beer’s Egyptian and African heritage, these traditions have been mostly forgotten and are rarely found in American brewing culture. Today, Blackowned breweries make up less than 1% of the nearly 9,000 breweries in operation. Eager to shift the historical perception of who makes and drinks beer, Black brewers, brand owners and influencers across the country are reshaping the craft beer industry and the future of America’s favorite adult beverage. Stick around for the post film discussion with the filmmakers, Brewed Black Girl, and Beered Black Man! Southern Circuit is a program of SouthArts made possible through a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
