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.
