If you like beer and crave a deeper understanding about how it’s made and how the American beer industry works, then Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse (2903 Columbia Pike) is the place to be tomorrow night.

The Drafthouse will be screening Beer Wars, a documentary that “goes behind the scenes of the daily battles and all out wars that dominate one of America’s favorite industries” and “reveals the truth behind the label of your favorite beer.”

The film starts at 7:30 p.m., but an optional beer tasting will be held beforehand, beginning at 6:15. The tasting will feature local and national craft beers, including Dogfish, Flying Dog, Stone, Sam Adams, Star Hill, Heavy Seas, and more.

    where do we park? does it cost to park?
    will there be police checkpoints on the way home?

    Get there early enough and there’s free parking behind the McDonalds in the lot that advertises parking for the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse. Get there late, and you can either park on the neighborhood streets for free or in the underground Halstead parking lot (but that will cost you). Don’t know about police checkpoints on the way home, but if they don’t have them for the wine tastings then they probably won’t have them for beer tastings. Of course, you probably weren’t expecting a serious answer…

      thank you.

    Their draft beers taste terrible–like they don’t clean the taps.
