One Pint at a Time is a documentary feature by Aaron Hosé, created as part of the requirements for earning a Master of Fine Arts in Feature Film Production from the University of Central Florida. This is the first documentary film in history to focus exclusively on the stories of African American beermakers and brewery owners, their ties to ancient Egyptian and African brewing traditions, and how they are trying to make their mark within the business of craft beer; a multi-billion-dollar industry in which merely one percent of breweries are Black-owned and operated. Following the guidelines of UCF's program, Aaron and his team produced the film on a microbudget (under $70,000) level. The project spanned across four years (2017-2021) from concept to completion. Principal production took place in Florida, Connecticut, New Orleans, Texas, Colorado and Pennsylvania. Second unit covered additional scenes in various states across the country and continued throughout the pandemic. This thesis is a record of the film's progression from development to production, post-production, and launch of the film's marketing phase in October of 2021.
