Landmark Bushwick Breuckelen Beer

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.
