Starting today, the New York Historical Society is set to open what promises to be a spectacular exhibit this summer. "Beer Here: Brewing New York’s History" will run from today through September 2nd and will cover the vast history of brewing in New York. The recent surge of craft brewing in New York has helped to remind us that there was once a great brewing tradtion in New York. It is no secret that New York has brewed a lot of beer. Prior to prohibition New York had some of the countries largest brewers.
