Craft Beer-Centric Comedy “Beerituality” to Screen at Jimmy’s No. 43 in Manhattan April 25

By Brewers Association April 2, 2012

The production team behind the comedic feature film “Beerituality” will host a one-night-only screening at Jimmy’s No. 43, 43 E. 7th St., New York, NY at 7 pm on Wednesday, April 25. There is no cover charge for the event, which is open to the public, 21 and over.

Directed by Jeff Cioletti and co-directed by Lou Tambone from a screenplay written by Cioletti, “Beerituality is a satire of politics and religious fundamentalism set against the backdrop of the craft beer world. 

“There’s no better way to experience a film about craft beer than over a couple of pints at the city’s premiere craft beer bar,” says Cioletti. 

Members of the cast and crew will be on hand at the screening. 

Synopsis of “Beerituality”

In the fictional small town of Brewster, few places are as popular among the locals as the Abbey Normal beer bar—at least until one of the country’s most infamous anti-alcohol zealots, Reverend Jimmy Patrick, comes to town. 

When the prohibitionist preacher maneuvers his way into the mayor’s chair, he wastes no time in launching a referendum to ban all alcohol.

The charismatic holy roller manages to eke out narrow passage of the referendum, thus putting Abbey Normal out of business.

However, the pub’s owners find a loophole in the local ordinance—a special allowance for alcohol served during religious services–and cleverly transform the bar into St. Abbey the Normal, aka The Church of Beer.

Once the new mayor gets wind of the operation he and the batty beer-hater Gonzo Gertie make quick work of shutting it down.

But help is on the way from an unlikely team of robed avengers from across the pond…

“Beerituality” was produced by Cioletti, Tambone and Syndi Szabo through FAD Productions. The film stars Mimian Morales, Christopher Padula, Lou Tambone, Mark Szabo and Jessica Steele. It was filmed throughout New Jersey.
