This week on Brooklyn Eats Rachel celebrates Craft Beer Week with Chris O'Leary of BrewYorkNewYork.com. Rachel and Chris break down Brooklyn's beer history in three acts: pre-Prohibition, Prohibition, and the modern era. Learn about the peak of Brooklyn as a beer production borough (48 breweries just in Brooklyn!) through their struggle to stay afloat during Prohibition (alcohol free beer and illegal shenanigans) all the way to the first modern-era brewery in 1996. Don't miss this info-packed and surprising crash course in our fair city's brewery heritage. This episode was sponsored by Fairway: like no other market.
