Beer Wars!


If you keep your finger on the pulse of the craft beer industry, then you may have caught wind that the upcoming documentary, Beer Wars, will be simulcast live from Royce Hall on UCLA’s campus to 440 theaters across America on April 16th. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, check it out below. Also take a peek at a short clip from the documentary featuring our co-founder & CEO, Greg Koch, waxing poetic about our early history, our philosophy and our approach to the idea of “competition.” As part of the simulcast, Ben Stein will moderate a live panel discussion immediately after the movie with some of the leading independent brewers and experts from the film, including Todd Alstrom, Sam Calagione, Charlie Papazian, and  our very own Greg Koch.

We’re getting a Team Stone bus together to take a trip up to UCLA for the simulcast, and we’d love for you to join us. Unfortunately, we can’t take you with us on the Team Stone bus, so you’ll have to find a way to get there yourself (Note: parking at UCLA), but we’ll hook you up with the admission. If you want in, go here and RSVP. Due to limited capacity at the theater, not everyone will make it on our list. Reservations are first come first serve, so RSVP ASAP! You must be at Royce Hall by 4:30pm. Doors close at 4:45pm, so don’t be late!

If you can’t join us in LA, you’ll have plenty of other screening options across the country. Check your local theaters and the Fathom Events website for official screening locations. San Diego beer fans will have three options: AMC Mission Valley 20, Regal Horton Plaza San Diego, and Regal Mira Mesa 18 with IMAX. Remember, all screenings will be broadcast live on April 16th, but be sure to check with your local theater for actual times.

We’re brimming with anticipation for this monumental one-time beer event, and we hope you’ll catch the simulcast on April 16th. Cheers!

  1. Hey Matt! We’re excited about Beer Wars! If we RSVPd to get tickets by sending emails to the address linked above, when do we find out if we made it on the list?
    Thanks for the offer! Should be fun and hope we can go!

  2. There’s a screening of Beer Wars in La Jolla too! That’s a lot closer than the other options for us SD North County folk ;)

  3. I cant wait. Will there be beer there? if not will we be able to bring beer in?

  4. Hey Matt!

    The LA Ale Club will be there, or at least those of us who love beer more than our jobs. Looking forward to seeing Greg and the gang again.

    If you guys are interested in joining us, we’re going to a nearby brewpub for beers and movie reviews afterwards. Check out the Westwood Brewing Company a few blocks from UCLA and come have some brews with us!

  5. Sorry Norm, but I don’t think they’ll let beer into Royce Hall at UCLA. Might have to wait until after….-Greg.

  6. Looks good, so far! We’ll be here in Cleveland for the screening.

    Watched it tonight @ UCLA and enjoyed it.

    I got a laugh out of seening Mitch Steele at the Anheiser Busch booth during the GABF scene.
