Well, they get organized, and fight to get the beer they so desire. The film focuses on Free the Hops, an incorporated grassroots organization, who are lobbying to change the legislation concerning beer. Will they make it or will their hopes to drink tasty brew be crushed by the villainous House of Representatives? Find out in Hopheads.
