Somehow I almost forgot to get this online, but I couldn’t let the day go by without letting people know of a screening of a movie about the most influential beer writer – Michael Jackson.

“Beer Hunter: The Movie,” will be showing at the Regent Theater, 7 Medford St., Arlington, on Thursday. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the film starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance (click here) or $10 at the door.

The movie is directed by J.R. Richards. He had filmed a series of videos for Jackson’s Rare Beer Club in 2004. The recordings include trips throughout Europe and the U.S.

Jackson died in 2007 (not long after I started writing about beer) and Richards kept the footage to use in the documentary. Clipboard01

The movie features interviews with Fritz Maytag of Anchor Brewing Company, Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery, Charlie Papazian of the Brewers Association, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head, Tomme Arthur of Lost Abbey and Greg Koch of Stone Brewing.

Author Tom Acitelli, who wrote the fabulous “The Audacity of Hops: The History of America’s Craft Beer Revolution,” will introduce the film and speak about Jackson’s influence after the film.

During the event, the Regent will serve Massachusetts beers from Berkshire Brewing Company, Cisco Brewers and Samuel Adams.
