Beers of Joy is a fascinating, entertaining, and delightful journey into our world's favorite, magical elixir. Feast upon stunning visuals of medieval monasteries, ancient Italian villages, and breweries from across the world that serve as the backdrop for four people immersing themselves in their passion for beer. An internationally acclaimed brewer and a celebrated chef take separate journeys of discovery through Europe and early America, while two Advanced Cicerones attempt to pass the prestigious Master Cicerone exam (beer's equivalent to wine's Master Sommelier), one of the most difficult tests in the world. Historians, scientists, clergy, brewers and, most importantly, every man and woman flavor this brew, a love letter to beer that proves once and for all that beer isn't just a happy hour drink anymore.

  • Beers on me! by 10

    If your into beer this is for you. A good documentary about how two men started of making some of the best craft beer. Super in-depth from start to finish. Kudos to them.

  • Brought out the beer nerd in me by 10

    An in depth picture of two men and their journey through the Master Cicerone Exam with a 99 to 100% fail rate. Any dreams I had of taking the exam vanished when I saw what Joe Vogelbacher and Ryan Daley had to go through to take this exam. There were great visuals of beautiful award winning Brewmaster Tonya Cornett as she searches the world for the knowledge to make great tasting beer. Talented Chef Sean Z. Paxton cooks with beer over a fire in an old time setting. This movie is not just an ode to Anheuser-Busch there is a real craft Brewery involved too. A small brewery owned by Joe Vogelbacher and Eric Flanigan founded in 2014 is featured. My favorite part in the movie is when Eric helps Joe study for the exam with mnemonics. You can see they started the brewery with an admiration for each other that has now turned to love.

  • An amazing journey about craft beer by 9

    Loved it!! A seriously well put together documentary about craft beer. They shot this in 4k also so the visuals are stunning also. For somebody like me who doesn't know much about craft beer other then drinking it, I was intrigued and learnt a-lot. 10 stars from me
