Opening-Night Reception and St. Louis Brews

180 min.

Schedule

Thursday, Nov. 3 at 6:30pm

SLIFF kicks off our 25th anniversary with a beer blast: a suds-centric reception and a work-in-progress screening of “St. Louis Brews,” Bill Streeter’s celebration of all things hops-related in the Lou. Inspired by the same-named 2009 book by Henry Herbst, Don Roussin, and Kevin Kious, “St. Louis Brews” examines St. Louis’ defining influence on the beer industry and profiles the innovative craft brewers who are building on that storied tradition. The screening features a generous sampling of three extended sequences from the film, and the Q&A will include a number of the brewers featured. “St. Louis Brews” will quench beer aficionados’ thirst for knowledge, and our opening-night reception will satisfy their actual desire to drink by serving complimentary product from local breweries, including selections from SLIFF’s official beer sponsor, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, and a half-dozen more fine purveyors (Alpha Brewing Company, Civil Life, Earthbound, Griesedieck, Kräftig, and Schlafly).

St. Louis Brews

Schedule

Thursday, Nov. 3 at 8:00pm

SLIFF kicks off our 25th anniversary with a beer blast: a suds-centric reception and a work-in-progress screening of “St. Louis Brews,” Bill Streeter’s celebration of all things hops-related in the Lou. Streeter — an alum of the fest whose 2011 documentary “Brick by Chance and Fortune” premiered at the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase and was reprised at SLIFF — is the creator of Lo-Fi St. Louis, a pioneering video blog that’s documented our town, with a particular emphasis on its vibrant music scene, since way back in 2005. Inspired by the same-named 2009 book by Henry Herbst, Don Roussin, and Kevin Kious, “St. Louis Brews” examines St. Louis’ defining influence on the beer industry and profiles the innovative craft brewers who are building on that storied tradition. The screening features a generous sampling of three extended sequences from the film, and the Q&A will include a number of the brewers featured. Through interviews, archival footage, memorabilia, and visits to brewing sites of yesterday and today, “St. Louis Brews” will quench beer aficionados’ thirst for knowledge, and our opening-night reception will satisfy their actual desire to drink with complimentary product from local breweries.
