The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

Join beer aficionado Chris Heuberger in a guided walking tour of Brewers Row dating from when Bushwick, Brooklyn was the brewing center of America. Critical to Bushwick’s success was its ready access to quality water from the Ridgewood Reservoir and hops grown in upstate New York.
Learn stories of the breweries, beer, and people that made Bushwick into such a thriving brewing powerhouse. Come walk that history and see the 19th century historic brewery buildings built when Bushwick was a lively hub for the beer culture of German-speaking immigrants. And of course, we’ll end at Bushwick’s landmark bar, The Well, to enjoy a pint served up in the old Otto Huber brewery building. Teetotalers fully welcome.
