The much-loved two hundred year old brewery in Cork, Ireland, shut its gates forever in March 2009. As they reminisce, the ex-workers must come to terms with their grief at its closure. Suffused with bittersweet memories and wry affection, these are the stories of the famous Beamish and Crawford Brewery. All things must end, but the human spirit persists.
The film received the Made in Cork award for Best Short Film at the Corona Cork Film Festival 2009, and was broadcast on Irish national TV in June 2010.
