Matt Levy loves bikes. You’ve seen him around with handlebar mustache, hosting the bike kill with a megaphone, riding around on his tall bike. He’s also from an entire family of licensed tour guide who know the secret ins in our beloved city.
In October he has a really unique tour coming up on bicycle, which explores the Brooklyn breweries in the late 1800’s and into the turn of the century.
BIKE BROOKLYN BEER BLITZ!
A 3 hour bicycle tour of Williamsburg, East Williamsburgh and Bushwick and the former brewery buildings of the most densely packed brewing neighborhoods in America, circa 1890!
See historical photographs of various brewery buildings when they were built, between the 1880s and 1920s, compare them with vintage 1970s photos (in the heart of Bushwick’s deep dark arson-and-gangs era) and observe them as they stand today, re-purposed but obviously the same brewery buildings. German Churches, banks and social halls will also be observed. The tour will end at Evergreen Cemetery on the Brooklyn/Queens border, where many of the Brewers are buried . . . with a surprise!
A historical, educational, beer-drinkable adventure!
