My husband and his friend Joe used to brew their own beer in our Brooklyn kitchen, so I know a lot about the fermentation of barley. Mercifully, they stopped after a few years and now buy their favorite brew from the local store like everyone else. However, I bet the two will want to attend the upcoming lecture about the role of beer in the borough's history at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Maybe I'll tag along. How about you?
