Episode 125 Drink Tank with Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery

Drink Tank host Gibson Thomas, publisher and editor of Edible Marin & Wine Country, talks to Garrett Oliver, brewmaster extraordinaire of The Brooklyn Brewery.

Garrett and Gibson explore the rich history of brewing in Brooklyn that was propelled by the large influx of German immigrants in the 19th century, the demise of that tradition brought about by the rise of mass-produced (and mass-marketed) beers from the Midwest in the 1970s, and the current explosion in full-flavored, artisan-crafted beers in this country.
