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.

This week on The Speakeasy, Damon Boelte checks in with celebrated bartender Toby Maloney of The Violet Hour, a pre-Prohibition era-inspired speakeasy in Chicago recently nominated for the Outstanding Bar Program James Beard Award. Learn how Toby found his way to The Violet Hour and what has influenced his style as a bartender. Find out what it takes to run a successful bar and find out what "Malort" is and why it's popular in Chicago. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

"The Violet Hour is definitely a group effort. No one person opens a bar."

"Malört is kind of like drinking a tiger fire. It's the most bitter thing I can possibly think of."
