Directed by Jeff Smith, DhicPhace Films LLC

This documentary begins on a personal note from director Jeff Smith—who left his pregnant wife at home for a month during filming—but the story is wisely told by brewers, owners and representatives of 80 breweries in California. While the focus is on the Golden State, the film tackles many universal beer topics: What is the definition of craft beer? Is brewing more art or science? No matter where you live, it’s best to watch with a glass of your favorite California beer. –Jon Page
