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!
