Geocache Description:

This cache is in an older industrial area of Williamsburg. Take a stroll through the neighborhood and see all the amazing sights. This area was known as brewers road. I stocked it with some tradables and can hold very small trackables. Tweezers will be a good tool to have and BYOP.

 


Cache is a homemaid container, please replace as found. May need some tweezers to get the log out. BYOP. I have stocked it with some coins.

 

In the 1840s and 1850s, Brooklyn saw a wave of immigration as Germans fled a failed revolution and poured into the city. A large number of these newcomers settled in an area of Brooklyn which extended from Bushwick Place to Lorimer Street and covered Scholes and Meserole Streets. They set up a number of breweries, leading to the area being nicknamed “Brewers’ Row.” By 1890, there were 14 breweries operating within this 14-block area, and Bushwick was  the “beer capital of the Northeast.”Bushwick’s brewing industry was able to thrive during the last half of the 19th century due to advancements in bottling and brewing technologies, as well as the construction of the elevated railroad along Myrtle Avenue. Since beer was aregional product at the time, and people usually only drank beer that was made nearby, there was a huge market in the Northeast. Brooklyn’s 35 breweries were producing 1.1 million barrels of beer annually – and more than two dozen of those were in Bushwick.
