Brooklyn German Beer Breweries

Crhis HeubergerSunday, September 17 at 2:00pm

German immigrant brewers brought their technical and culinary know-how to their new homes in NYC in the mid-19th century.  Though none remain today, Bushwick became home to a number of thriving breweries that served the greater metro area. Many of today’s micro breweries draw on the tastes and legacy of those brewers

Chris Heuberger brings his Brooklyn Brewery walking tour, a popular NYC H2O event, into our parlor as an illustrated talk followed by a tasting.

Admission: $10/ Members $8

OktoberfestSaturday, September 23rd, 5:30—8:30pm                                                                      

Join us for Oktoberfest Flushing Style in the garden. Oktoberfest is an old tradition, of welcoming guests and sharing in the season’s bounty. Today it is enjoyed around the world. At the Voelker Orth we’ve brought together some of old Flushing and new for a cultural and culinary treat.

Oktoberfest Flushing Style is a fun and affordable fundraiser for the Museum. It is an evening of warm hospitality and lively entertainment, served up with home-cooked fare and tasty brew. Come linger in the twilight in a bountiful garden and help support the Voelker Orth Museum. Bring friends or come on your  own.

The evening offers an outdoor grill, serving up German-American cuisine alongside  a sampling of  Korean-American dishes - uniting two culinary traditions that feature humble pickled cabbage. Norman Curtis will be performing  at the keyboard, with appearances by other artists. There’s a raffle to try your luck
