Crafting A Nation, a documentary filmed by Free Mind Productions, from Denver, CO, covers economic recovery and the American Dream via the booming craft beer industry. The film visits craft breweries in 15 locations, along with following a new Colorado brewery from idea to grand opening. The movie shows these breweries as they finish construction, launch their brands, and open to the public, and focuses on the struggles and triumphs of small business owners. Crafting A Nation tells stories of local economies, where a brewery serves as a catalyst to a chain reaction which occurs from breweries revitalizing a section of a city and providing jobs, and the resulting domino effect that follows with other small businesses that work together to succeed as a result of the brewery.
