Stone Brewing to Host Virtual Screening of “The Beer Jesus From America”

Stonelogo2Stone Brewing (Escondido, California) has officially announced that it will hold a virtual screening of The Beer Jesus from America – a live event featuring commentary and a Q&A with Stone Brewing Co-founder Greg Koch and filmmaker Matt Sweetwood of Sweetwood Films – at 6 p.m. (PST) on Friday, May 8.

To give their fans a little something different to participate in during this time of social distancing, Stone Brewing is taking to its YouTube Channel on May 8 to provide a free screening of The Beer Jesus from America, a 104-minute documentary that follows Co-founder Greg Koch (a.k.a. “Beer Jesus”) and Stone Brewing as they set off on the “often tumultuous journey to becoming the first American independent craft brewery to build, own and operate its own brewery in Europe.” This film documents four years at Stone Brewing – Berlin and the brewery’s overall “mission to inspire a craft beer revolution in Germany.”

While the documentary is airing, Greg Koch and Matt Sweetwood will both be on hand to “livestream commentary during the film, sharing their experiences, talk beer and enjoy a few tasty selections with the beloved craft beer community.” Once the film is over, Koch and Sweetwood will open things up for a fun and interactive Q&A session moderated by respected Emmy nominated film critic Scott Mantz.

Film Synopsis (sourced directly from the brewery’s press release):

Willing to risk millions on a dream to become the first American craft brewer to build, own and operate their own brewery in Europe, and also create an international craft brewing destination, Stone Brewing co-founder Greg Koch may have made the biggest mistake of his career!  Against seemingly insurmountable odds, the man who’s been nicknamed “the Beer Jesus from America” pushes on with passion and tenacity to join and help move forward Europe’s newly budding craft brewing scene as a revolutionary alternative to cheap industrial beer. Over four years filmmaker Matt Sweetwood (Beerland) captures this historic birth of an American brewery in Berlin, in a story of culture clashes, broken promises and a bottomless beer glass of unexpected challenges.

You can join the live screening event for The Beer Jesus from America by visiting Stone Brewing’s YouTube Channel at 6 p.m. (PST) on May 8. The event is completely free and is sure give us all a fun way to escape the realities of today for a couple hours by providing the pub/taproom experience we all miss as the hosts, attendees and participants sit around and discuss beer and movies for a while. We hope to raise a socially-distanced pint with you all on May 8.  Prost!
