Crafting A Nation is a feature length documentary and new media project about how the
American Craft Brewers are rebuilding the economy one beer at a time. The film was shot in over 10 select craft beer locations across the country including: Chico CA, San Francisco CA, Denver CO, Boulder CO, MN, Austin TX, San Antonio,TX, Asheville NC, Portland OR, and Saint Louis. While the film covers the nationwide growth of craft beer, we focus on the inspirational story of two brothers, Branden and Chad Miller, struggling to achieve their 10 year old dream of opening Black Shirt Brewing Company.
This is the first 90 second official trailer for the film. The film will be released Early 2013.

Tom Kuntz directed this visual-effects heavy TVC depicting a hyper-stylised Hahn Super Dry brewery where the "superness" - represented by a series of unorthodox influences - is infused and brewed into the beer at every stage of its creation.
The 60second TVC from Sydney agency Publicis Mojo was shot in LA with Kuntz, who previously won an Emmy for best commercial of the year with Old Spice’s ‘The Man Your Man Could Smell Like’.

We made our apartment-sized Beer Kit ( brooklynbrewshop.com/beer-making-kits ) to get space-strapped city dwellers brewing, so imagine a walk-in closet with a sink and a stove.
If you can brew there, you can brew anywhere.
And if you can make oatmeal, you can make beer, but we've made a lot more friends with cold beer than warm oatmeal. We think you will too.
