Also known for its web series, What’s on Tap, GK Visual created the film, Brewed in the Burg, in 2015, a feature-length film on Harrisburg’s craft beer community.

Poured in Pennsylvania, or “Poured in PA,” will follow our Commonwealth’s storied beer past, delve into recent growth, and aim to capture the full tale of the beer industry in the keystone state.

“We produced Brewed in the Burg using our own resources. However, with a project of this size, we need help,” said Nate Kresge, GK Visual Co-Owner and Executive Producer. “Our goal through this campaign is to raise the funds needed to put us on the road, keep the lights on in the office, and be able to put together an incredible, feature-length story on Pennsylvania’s beer industry.”

In addition to shooting all new footage for the film, GK Visual has enlisted the services of music producer, Mitch Hood, to create all original music for Poured in PA.

GK Visual also has received support for the project from Brewers of Pennsylvania (BOP), the official brewing guild for Pennsylvania.

“Pennsylvania has a rich, vibrant brewing history, and as the leading organization tasked with promoting and protecting the brewing industry in the state, we’re excited for Poured in PA,” said Dan LaBert, BOP Executive Director. “Pennsylvania ranks eighth in the U.S. with the number of craft breweries and first in the number of barrels of craft beer produced each year. We look forward to Poured in PA telling some of those success stories.”

GK Visual has assembled a line of beer-related prizes and extras as rewards for contributions, from t-shirts, glassware and art prints to hosting a movie premiere party or joining the crew on-set.
