I recently posted about the film, American Beer. It's quite amateur-ish, but worth a look - they visit 38 craft breweries across the US in 40 days. There are some great interviews and interesting "backstage" (back-brewery sounded weird) footage.
I'm going to go set the DVR to record the History Channel show right now!
EDIT: The Modern Marvels marathon includes the history of distilling (2 parts) and coffee as well, just prior to the one on beer.
