Los Alamos’ quest for its own brewery needs support

Though there is always the possibility that one may exist elsewhere in America, the Los Alamos Beer Cooperative is the first of its kind in New Mexico. Quietly, this co-op effort is seeking to open the first brewery in Los Alamos, with a reported target date of this fall.

The new documentary about craft brewing will be shown tonight to benefit the Los Alamos Beer Co-op.

Of course, hoping to open a brewery and getting a bunch of people together to do it are one thing. Finding the money is another. To that end, the co-op is holding a public fundraising event, tying it into beer, of course. It is not just a gathering of beer drinkers who want to drink beer, but instead the presentation of a documentary film.

“Crafting a Nation” is a documentary directed by Thomas Kolicko about the growing craft brewing industry in America. It has never been shown in New Mexico before, but it will be tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m. at the Reel Deal Theater. Tickets will cost $15 at the door. Santa Fe Brewing is generously providing beer for the event and there will be door prizes.

The proceeds will support the co-op and make their dream of a brewery in Los Alamos one step closer to reality.

For more info on the documentary, including a three-minute trailer, click here. For more info on the Los Alamos Beer Co-op, click here. Their website does a much better job explaining just what a co-op is and how it will work for a brewery than I ever could.

We wish everyone at the co-op good luck tonight. We would love to attend, but between work (or a lack thereof) and a prior commitment we will be stuck in Albuquerque on Thursday.

If you are in Los Alamos or nearby, please consider heading over to the theater and helping out.

Cheers!
