Announcing a fun event and a contest too!


A great friend of mine has produced and directed an indie film called Beer Wars.  The movie is very compelling and will be showing on one day only at 440 theaters across the nation on April 16.   Ben Stein is hosting the event LIVE in LA… pretty cool stuff!

I am fortunate to have experienced the evolution of this movie over the past couple of years.  I’ve watched a couple of the early screenings and have truly enjoyed each new and improved version.  I haven’t seen the final version, so I am really excited for April 16!

In light of my excitement, I’ve decided to have a little contest for my fabulous readers.  I am giving away two free tickets to the movie at a theater of your choice.  Here is a list of theaters to choose from:

I will have a random drawing on Tuesday, April 14.  All you have to do to register is:  #1 post a blog entry or Twitter about the event.  #2 enter a comment on this post linking to your blog entry or Twitter ID…. that’s it!

Here is a short synopsis of the movie:  BEER WARS LIVE on April 16th, One Night Only.  Beer Wars LIVE marches into select movie theatres in a special live simulcast event on Thursday, April 16th to tell the David and Goliath story of the American beer industry.. Beer Wars LIVE will take you inside the boardrooms and back rooms of the big business of beer — a microcosm of American business today where the big are getting bigger, consolidation reigns and free enterprise often takes a back seat.

The evening will feature the world premiere of the groundbreaking documentary Beer Wars, followed by a spirited and timely LIVE discussion led by Ben Stein with some of America’s leading independent brewers and experts.  Playing in 440 movie theatres nationwide on Thursday, April 16th, Beer Wars LIVE will take you behind-the-scenes of the daily battles and all-out wars that dominate one of America’s favorite industries.

Presented by NCM Fathom and Ducks In A Row Entertainment, in partnership with Reason Foundation, Yelp! and All About Beer magazine.
