Beer for Breakfast (by Sean Grennan) tells the story of a group of middle-aged buddies reunited for a “guys’ weekend” in a snowed-in cabin to eat chili, drink beer, and relive the good old days. Despite divorce, unemployment, and a stroke, spirits are high until Jessie, the wife of absent friend Adrian, shows up in his place. An epic battle of wits and stamina ensues: will the men win their right to an all-out guy fest, or will woman be crowned the stronger sex after all? Starring Brandon Cardwell, Lisa Green, Nick Simpson, and John Wyllie, Beer for Breakfast is directed by Dylan Webster, with assistant director Tom Ramseyer and producer Dan Schweizer.
