Thurs., June 23: Brooklyn Historical Society, in conjunction Urban Oyster, presents a lesson in history told through beer. Join local beer guides David Naczycz and Cindy VandenBosch as they lead a tasting using present day versions of historical beers to tell the story of the brew, its key role in our civilization and how, ultimately, beer found its way to Brooklyn where it prospered, fell, and now is prospering again.
The tasting will include six generous tastings of beer along with delicious food pairings of cured meats and cheeses. Through these tastings we’ll get a sense of how everyone from ancient Mesopotamians to Belgian monks to our Brooklyn grandfathers drank their beer and how all of our lives are different today because of beer. Limited seated. Advance ticket purchase recommended.
7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
