Talk: Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster

Talks At Google is proud to welcome Garrett Oliver, American brewer and beer author from New York City. Since 1994, he has worked as the brewmaster at the Brooklyn Brewery. Through the microbrewery panic of the 1990s, into the world-changing craft beer movement of today, Garrett Oliver remains part of the vanguard of American brewing. He joins us in NYC to discuss American food history from the early 1900s to the present, a journey that takes us from traditional food and drink, through an era of ‘food facsimiles’, and, hopefully, back again.
