Led by Mike Mann, an Austin Director and Documentary filmmaker, The Beer Diaries production team is a talented group that like beer almost as much as they love telling great stories.  The initial concept behind The Beer Diaries is straightforward – host a series of interviews showcasing brewers and their beers with an end goal of celebrating and promoting craft beer around the world.  The first installment of episodes showcases brewers in and around Austin, Texas.  The Beer Diaries team is heading to Colorado next, and plan on filming there in Spring 2013.
