Default Netflix Instant: Beer movies

Hey all. I was just going through some Netflix stuff and noticed a few documentaries that might be of interest. I should start off by saying I haven't watched any of these yet, and so I'm not necessarily recommending them. Rather, just bringing them to your discerning attention.

Empires of Industry: Brewed in America. Some of the reviews are low and say it plays out as almost a beer commercial for the large beer breweries. I'll probably give it a shot anyway.

Beer Wars. This one has a bit more potential. I believe they go to smaller breweries to see what they have to do to compete with the big corporations.

Blood Into Wine. This one, as you probably figured out, is more about wine. My personal interest in it has more to do with Maynard James Keenan (lead singer of Tool) who this documentary is about. "This perceptive documentary tells the unusual tale of Maynard James Keenan, the hard-rocking, eccentric front man of Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer who abruptly left Los Angeles in the mid-1990s to start a world-class vineyard in Arizona."

If you'd like, why not add other beer/wine/cider documentaries/movies to this thread and make something of a go-to list for Netlflix instant viewers.

Enjoy.

I started watching Blood to Wine and couldn't get into it, I've been meaning to try it again.

I loved Beer Wars. As long as you recognize that obviously it's an anti-BMC propaganda film (which for the record, I am fine with that), it's quite good.

I enjoyed Beer Wars. It is very much anti-BMC propaganda, but its pretty interesting and easily kept my interest.

See if you can find Brew Masters on Discovery. It's the doc about Dogfish Head. Interesting stuff!

Didn't find Brew Masters but a documentary called The Historic pubs of Dublin came up as a suggestion, think i'll give it a go.

I'll keep an eye out for it. It's not on instant right now, but it might be at some point.

Schweet, thanks.

I just watched Blood Into Wine, and it was pretty great. It had a nice comedic side to it too, which was appreciated.
