Pearl Street Brewery Screening Craft Beer Documentary ‘For the Love of Craft’ and Hosting Local Beer Panel

Pearl Street Brewery is screening the Craft Beer Documentary ‘For the Love of Craft’ Saturday January 4th, 2020 and will be hosting a beer panel of local brewers and representatives from Skeleton Brew Crew, Turtle Stack Brewery, 608 Brewing Company, the Wisconsin Brewers Guild, and Pearl Street Brewery.

The craft beer documentary follows several well-known brewery founders including Larry Bell from Bell’s Brewery, Kevin Blodger of Union Craft Brewing, Ken Grossman from Sierra Nevada, Kim Jordan of New Belgium Brewing, and Jim Koch of Boston Beer Co.

The film focuses on small and independent U.S. craft brewing, reliving the early days of building their breweries from the ground up. Produced by the Brewers Association (publishers of CraftBeer.com), Studio C3, and Charlie Papazian. The impetus for the film emerged from the Brewers Association’s archive of photographs and hours of filmed interviews with the pioneers of the craft beer community.

Following the screening, a panel of local La Crosse County brewers will share insight, field questions, and discuss brewing in the area. Mark Garthwaite the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Brewers Guild will also be in attendance to discuss the contributions Wisconsin’s small brewers bring to the state as well as the challenges they are facing.

Big Bluff Comedy and Pearl Street Brewery are happy to present standup comedian Tony Deyo on November 23, 2019.

Tony Deyo is a stand-up comedian known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. New York City’s Village Voice calls him “one of the tightest joke writers in the business.”

His latest album, Comedy Road Trip, landed on the Billboard Magazine comedy chart, and debuted as the #1 selling stand-up album on iTunes. With over 50 stand-up clips available, he has steadily become one of the most prolific comedians on YouTube.

He performed at the prestigious HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, was named one of the year’s best by the New York Post, and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

The shows will take place at the Pearl Street Brewery Tasting Room on Saturday November 23. There are two shows, 7:00 and 9:30.
