The first documentary, “One Pint at a Time,” takes place Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. and profiles how Black brewers and influencers are shifting the historical perception of who makes and drinks beer.
The evening will include a pre-screening beer tasting with Tampa’s Bastet Brewing and a talkback with Aaron Hosé (writer / director / producer) and Brigitte Hosé (executive producer).
