For the Love of Craft

There are plenty of films about craft beer - the process and the product. But, what about the people? What drives a person to chase the crazy dream or experiment with convention. To challenge everything they’ve been told.

For the Love of Craft is a documentary series that peels back the label of what it means to be a craft brewer, and reveals the people behind it. From the celebrities and icons of the craft world, to the home brewer stumbling through an ill conceived dream, this series will dive deep and expose the desires, the dreams, the wisdoms, and the naivety of people pursuing their passions.

Director Biography - Kaleb Kohart

How does one write a bio about oneself in the third person without sounding simultaneously self-centered and derivative? Well, one would assume you rely on the facts.

There is one constant fact throughout Kaleb's career, he has maintained the constant pursuit for great stories to tell in an emotionally impactful way. This began as a class clown trying to subvert the presence of school yard bullies, and manifested in Kaleb becoming a director and cinematographer as a way to pursue his passion... and pay his mortgage.

Clearly serious about himself as a subject, Kaleb's love of filmmaking has resulted in the opportunity to work with amazing brands, such as Apple, ESPN, Canon, Microsoft, and Four Seasons, to name a few. His work has been featured as part of the Denver Film Festival, Super Bowl 50, Filmapalooza Paris, the Napa Valley Film Festival, and multiple national commercial campaigns.

Kaleb is the founder of Studio C3, King Charles Films, the RiP, and the Colorado Improv Festival. He strives to become a true raconteur and is an avid lover of dogs.

Director Statement

When we set out on this journey, we created one rule, "This series has to first be about the people, not the process of product." By focusing on the drive, dreams, and journeys of our characters, we are able to dive deeper and hopefully, inspire a universal audience of dreamers.

For the Love of Craft reminds people that it's okay to pursue your dreams and follow your passions.
