Follow-up: More Manhattan Brewing Company nostalgia

After seeing last week’s piece on Manhattan’s first brewpub, reader Doug passed along a piece he wrote for the Downtown Express in June of 1993 that features a young Garrett Oliver extolling the virtues of craft beer: “I want to usher in a new era of beer drinking here,” he says. He was true to his word; within a couple years, Oliver would be at the helm of the brew kettles at Brooklyn Brewery and well on his way to craft beer notoriety.

We’ll have more on the next era of brewing in New York - including the aforementioned Zip City - in a later installment.
