As part of the HI324: History of Beer, Brewing, and Drinking in America and ACE lecture series Staten Island Historian, Pat Salmon, will speak about the history of brewing on Staten Island.
HI324: History of Beer, Brewing, and Drinking in America and ACE welcome local brewery owner,Greg Doroski, to Wagner to discuss the resurgence of small craft breweries over the past several decades.
Brooklyn and Staten Island were once home to major brewing operations, but suffered from de-industrialization in the 1960s and 1970s. Mr. Doroski will cover the financial, cultural, and historical incentives that inspired him to take on the risk of opening his independent brewery, Threes Brewing, in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Join the History Department in recognition of our graduating History majors who will give brief presentations about their thesis topics.
