Whole Foods Market and Fresh City Life present a free screening of The Love of Beer, the 2011 documentary spotlighting women in the beer biz.
From The Love of Beer: "When someone thinks of a brewer, they probably don't picture a petite woman with red pigtails. But with Tonya Cornett's amazing beers and growing collection of medals, things may change.
