Urban tour guides David Naczycz and Cindy VandenBosch want to share a beer, and some history, with you.

Their Jan. 20 lecture, “Brewed in Brooklyn: A History of Fermenting Barley in New York’s Favorite Borough,” will fill the Brooklyn Historical Society with sudsy tales of our borough’s primary role in American brewing — though from 48 breweries in the early 19th century, we’re now down to three (sorry, homebrewers, you don’t count).

The good news is that those three — Brooklyn Brewery, Sixpoint Craft Ales and Greenpoint Beerworks, which makes Kelso of Brooklyn — will have their product on hand to make history go down easier than a Rheingold (brewed in Bushwick in the 1950s, by the way).

“Brewed in Brooklyn: A History of Fermenting Barley in New York’s Favorite Borough” at the Brooklyn Historical Society [128 Pierrepont St. at Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 222-4111], Jan. 20 at 6:30 pm. $20 for non-members, $15 for members.
