Murbah Swamp Beer is a documentary that could only be true in Australia. The film captures the spirit of one small Aussie town as they discover ‘the beer always tastes better when it’s free’.
Just before Easter a truck loaded with 40,000 bottles of beer crashed into the Tweed River. With salvage crews ordered to clear the crash zone for the busy Easter traffic, the locals commenced their own salvage operation, completely clearing the river of beer before the salvage crews returned a few days later.
Winner of the 2002 Tropfest Tropicana Award and the Inside Film Audience Award at the Mafia Awards.
