We’ve already told you about the “Trivial and Convivial” pub night to be held on Thursday of next week at the Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont Street (corner of Clinton). There’s more to come, though, from the hop-happy malt mavens at BHS. On Thursday, April 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. BHS will host “Brewed in Brooklyn: A History of Fermenting Barley in New York’s Favorite Borough”, presented by David Naczycz and Cindy VandenBosch of Urban Oyster and billed as “an entertaining, in-depth look at how beer has played a pivotal role in the history of Brooklyn.” There will be a beer and cheese reception before the talk. Tickets are $15 for BHS members and $20 for non-members, and may be purchased here. You must be 21 to attend.
Mr. Naczycz and Ms. VanderBosch will return to BHS on May 12, June 23, and August 25, for “Beer Tasting Through History”. The BHS sez:
Each night will focus on a specific period of beer history, which you will learn about as you taste beers from that time. More details to come, but mark your calendars now.
