“Kings of Beer” Doc Coming on September 17 from Gravitas Ventures

On September 17, Gravitas Ventures is releasing the documentary Kings of Beer (DVD: $19.99, Blu-ray: $24.99). Directed by Sean Mullin, the film follows a diverse group of elite Budweiser Brewmasters from 65 breweries and 23 countries as they battle it out in an intense competition to brew the iconic American lager Budweiser. Judged by an illustrious group of experts sequestered deep within the historic walls of Budweiser’s “Room 220” in St. Louis—responsible for ensuring the quality of over a quarter of the world’s beer—the Brewmaster who can brew the best, most consistent American Lager over a 12-month period will bring home the coveted Global Brewmaster Cup. Featuring unprecedented behind-the-scenes access, this exclusive look at the rigorous standards and intense competition that characterizes the brewing process includes appearances by Aisha Tyler, Jay Chandrasekhar, and Michael Voltaggio.
