This film was created through Cardinal Cinema, an exclusive class in which students are given a budget to create films for the WIPB PBS station. Through this film, I was able to travel around Indiana talking to many breweries and gaining real documentary experience. It debuted on WPIB and is currently premiering across the state in many breweries with great praise.
