Today we joyously introduce the first release in a series of videos produced by our friends at Transient Pictures exploring the people and stories that make Brooklyn Brewery. As 2013 marks our 25th year of making beer, there’s no better person to kick things off than Brooklyn co-founder & president, Steve Hindy.
Most craft brewers had a life before beer. Steve Hindy covered wars and assassinations for The AP in the Middle East. Along the way, he met American diplomats in bone-dry Islamic countries whose only source of beer was home-brewing. War correspondents are a resourceful lot, and Steve brought that resourcefulness to starting a brewery in Brooklyn.
