BHS Surveys the Sudsy Side of Brooklyn’s History

The Brooklyn Historical Society will host a program on an important part of Brooklyn’s manufacturing past that has also become an important part of its present and, perhaps, future:

The Brooklyn Historical Society will host Brewed in Brooklyn: A History of Fermenting Barley in New York’s Favorite Borough on Thursday, January 20 from 6:30-8:00 pm. Join David Naczycz and Cindy VandenBosch of Urban Oyster for an entertaining, in-depth look at how beer has played a pivotal role in the history of Brooklyn. A free beer and cheese reception precedes the talk. 21 and over only. Advanced ticket purchase recommended as the event will fill up. Purchase your tickets through the BHS website Tickets: $15 BHS members/$20 non-members.

    I saw a documentary about Milton Glaser recently, I had no idea he designed the Brooklyn Brewery label. I’m a huge fan of his. He said something to the effect of sometimes he charges alot, sometimes he messes around and “gives it away”. He had no idea the brand would become so successful. I am guessing he gave that one away, but he was cool about it-

    That’s right! I’d forgotten that the Brooklyn Brewery label is a Milton Glaser design. It does have his look.
