(Fredericton, NB) - Two film makers, Alex Vietinghoff and Shauna Chase, are producing the documentary "Beerocracy" on the growing craft brewing industry in New Brunswick. They have been filming since November 2015 and say it is coming along well.

Thus far have done twenty interviews of beer makers and beer lovers and aim to complete the project this spring after a crowdfunding campaign that will happen likely in March. The production is exploring whether New Brunswick can be a major beer tourism destination in Canada, the economic impact of these breweries on the small province and whether the NB industry can handle any more breweries. 

They are using a tagline "Be(er) this place",  play on the New Brunswick tourism slogan, " this place". Check them out on their official channels:
