In 2015, production company GK Visual created the film Brewed in the Burg. It’s an awesome feature-length documentary on the craft beer community in the company’s hometown of Harrisburg. Finish off your day by watching the movie above.
Well, GK Visual dropped us a line the other day to say that the Harrisburg-based video company plans to produce a statewide craft beer documentary — Poured in Pennsylvania or Poured in PA — that will follow the “Commonwealth’s storied beer past, delve into recent growth and aim to capture the full tale of the beer industry in the Keystone State.” To fund this idea, GK Visual will be launching a crowdfunding campaign early next month (no page yet). From the press release:
“Though we used our own resources to create Brewed in the Burg, a project of this size will take exponentially more travel and expenses, but we feel confidently that the state’s passionate craft beer community will be interested in supporting this project,” Kresge said.
GK Visual is assembling a line of beer-related prizes and extras as rewards for contributions, much like with any crowdfunding project. The crowdfunding site is expected to go live in early March. OF NOTE: Brewed in the Burg was awarded a 2016 Bronze Telly Award for Documentary Film, a Bronze Telly for Editing and a Silver Telly for Cinematography. CoolMaterial.com named this film one of the best free documentaries on YouTube. GK Visual is also known for its web series, What’s on Tap.
We’re expecting cool things if this movie gets off the ground.
