Brooklyn’s Brewing History Trolley Tour

From the colonial period to Prohibition to today’s craft beer renaissance, Brooklyn has played a major role in brewing this most famous of beverages. Board the trolley and step back in time to discover the borough’s brewing roots with beer historian Chris Heuberger and Green-Wood historian Jeff Richman. Along the way, they’ll showcase Green-Wood’s many beer-related points of interest, revealing the borough’s storied brewing prominence.
