What’s On Tap:Bryan Naro and Meagan Frappiea of Slate Roof Films discuss their upcoming documentary Brew Hampshire!
Bryant Naro and Meagan Frappiea met each other working together at Florentine Films. They left four years later to pursue their dreams of starting their own production company. They purchased a 150 year old Victorian home in New Hampshire, and formed Slate Roof Films (named in honor of their home). Their love of beer and New Hampshire inspired them to start their first feature documentary, Brew Hampshire, and tell the story of New Hampshire’s burgeoning craft brew scene.
Brew Hampshire is a documentary about the explosion of craft beer and beer culture in New Hampshire. Trailer: https://vimeo.com/85462257
They will be doing a Kickstarter for this project! Make sure to checkout the links below!

“We already had our drinkers on airplanes, we just didn’t have the beer,” says Jim Koch, co-founder of the Boston Beer Co., maker of Sam Adams. “They want to drink in the air what they’re drinking on the ground.”….Read More
Sam Adams Making Beer With Helium?

Get Your Beer to 41 Degrees in 45 Seconds!
We’ve all brought a room temperature six-pack to a party before, and wished it had been cold. If V-Tex gets its way, that will never happen again.
