Battles of the Bulge: "Beer Wars Live" at AMC Near You

Run clean out of political causes to get fired up about, since the election of Barack Obama? Here's a burning issue that ought to scare the bejeesus out of us all: The plight of struggling US independent beer brewers. Tickets are on sale now for the one-night-only engagement of Beer Wars Live, Anat Baron's foam-spewing documentary, which follows the stories of small brewers, like the makers of Dogfish Head and New Century Brewing, as they take on the corporate giants ruling the beer industry. The screening on April 16th, at AMC and Cobb Theaters, will be followed by live video conferencing hosted by Ben Stein and a special panel discussion featuring Sam Calaglione of Dogfish Head, Rhonda Kallman of New Century, Greg Koch of Stone Brewery, beer historian Maureen Ogle, and beer activist Todd Alstrom (now doesn't that sound like your dream job?)

Go here to find your closest theater and buy advance tickets.
