Portsmouth Beer Week Movie Premiere

Here's the official press release on some special events happening next month on New Hampshire's Seacoast, courtesy of and Sea Coast Beverage Lab:

PORTSMOUTH, NH (January 30, 2012) -- On Friday, March 2nd at 7pm, the third annual Portsmouth Beer Week is proud to present the East Coast Premiere of Alison Grayson’s documentary on women in the craft beer industry, “The Love of Beer”. More than two years in the making, the film examines why women, a small segment of the craft beer industry, do what they do from their everyday lives to their struggles in work. It’s not for feminism or equality, it’s for “The Love of Beer.”

In collaboration with the Portsmouth Music Hall, and present the “Love of Beer” documentary in the gorgeous main theatre. Joinus while we explore & learn about the women of the West Coast beer scene and their inspirations -- this will be an event you won’t want to miss! In addition to being the East Coast premiere of the documentary, it will also feature a panel of special guests. After the movie, leaders in our local craft beer community will be speaking about their experiences in the industry. The panel will be hosted by Amber Jansen of (full panel list will be announced soon).

This marks the third straight year that Portsmouth Beer Week has delivered a documentary premiere to the East Coast, with “The Love of Beer” following “Beer Wars” (2010) and “American Beer” (2011). Our partnership this year with the Portsmouth Music Hall is representative of our commitment to supporting local business, as they themselves are tremendous supporters of their community and of documentary film-making.

It all starts at 6pm when the doors open for drinks and a meet-and-greet, followed by the 75 minute documentary premiere at 7:00pm, concluding with the panel discussion on-stage at 8:30pm. Ticket cost is $8.50. Details on the event’s after-party are soon to follow.

About Portsmouth Beer Week: and Seacoast Beverage Lab have teamed up with local establishments to host the 3rd Annual Portsmouth Beer Week. Portsmouth Beer Week is a collective celebration of beer within the Portsmouth community. Local breweries (including Portsmouth Brewery, Smuttynose, Redhook, and Throwback) and regional breweries (Boston Beer Company, Sebago, Woodstock Inn and more) have also teamed up with local establishments to provide some unique offerings to their draught lineups. All of this is leading up to Monday which has both ceremoniously and affectionately become know as "Kate the Great Day".

Our goal is to foster a collaborative environment, so we can push Portsmouth further along into the national eye as the great beer city that we locally know it as.
