Brooklyn Beer Geeks III
From the cobblestone streets of Red Hook to the Beer Barons of Bushwick, Brooklyn has had a significant impact on the American beer industry. And the beer industry has had a significant impact on the borough of Brooklyn. One brewery we will visit actually had its own subway stop. Brooklyn, especially Bushwick, was the brewing capital of America. And then - Prohibition. This ride takes us through various neighborhoods as we visit sites of historic breweries: Federal, Consumer's, Ulmer, Hittleman's, Leonhard Michel, Schaeffer and my namesake, Meltzer Bros. Today, Brooklyn is again at the head of the pack with craft brewers Six Point, Brooklyn & Kelso. Find your inner beer geek. Join us.
