    I’ve never heard of this documentary before. It looks interesting as I’m a bartender myself. I wonder if it’s on Netflix.

      Not surprised that you may not have heard of it yet, as the film just had the World Premiere in Austin, Texas last month during the SXSW Film Festival. I have not received any more updates to indicate it has been accepted into other film festivals now/later this year.
      I do not know what the filmmakers will decide to do with the film; try to get it into theaters first before going to the DVD format for rent/sale OR go straight to video instead of theaters.
      Thanks for visiting my site and reading about this film.
