A flat, stale brew.

Even if "Beer Wars" works best as a brief introduction to craft beers, and inspires audiences to explore craft breweries in their area and beyond, then the film works.

A smart look at craft breweries trying to stay afloat against the stout-iest suds corps in the world. A film that just might be good for whatever 'ales' you.

Beer Wars is Michael Moore lite - less filling and not as tasty as Moore's best documentaries.

This soapbox doc ain't a promo for the suds you swig while watching ESPN! Filmmaker Anat Baron's Beer Wars asserts that best-selling brews like Budweiser, Miller's and Coors are more like colored water.

Audience Reviews for Beer Wars

Too cheeky for its own good, this is still a fascinating look at the off-balanced beer industry by a former president of Mike's Hard Lemonade.

Filled with likable folks and unlikable villains this is a good watch. It's a fast paced documentary about the beer industry and the fight of the smaller brews to just make a living doing what they love.
Well made and informative.
This made me dislike the crappy watered down beers even more and I hope that someday we will be able to have a much larger and varied selection of beer out there for all.
