Okay, spoiler alert! The best beer in Montana is often the beer you brew yourself. When we asked Rob about his video, he told us:
While filming, I realized how important homebrewing is to Montana, and just how deep its roots go. I saw the effect homebrewers had on beer, and how many professional brewers started on their kitchen stove.
Rob's other project, with Missoula resident Carl Spurgeon, is the documentary Homebrewd, set to debut during Missoula Craft Beer Week at The Top Hat on April 27.
As for what inspires Rob to tackle projects like the one for the Audience Awards:
I'm inspired by the passion of people. I'm passionate about filmmaking, and I'm passionate about beer. So when I saw the opportunity to collaborate and meet and talk with people who were passionate about beer, well I just couldn't resist.
