BK13_Creation_OPENER

Founded in 1988 and celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Brooklyn Brewery is one of the borough’s very biggest success stories. Brewmaster Garrett Oliver has been with the company since 1994, and he’s witnessed massive changes—in the Williamsburg neighborhood they call home and in the craft-beer world for which he’s been such an outspoken advocate. We spoke to Oliver about those early days, as well as what the future holds.
