Whether at the Chapter House near Cornell or an upscale pub in Manhattan, the craft beer movement may seem like a new phenomenon — but it has deep roots in New York. The Empire State was home to the earliest breweries in North America and was once the largest supplier of hops to the rest of the country. Drawing from the rich historical resources in the Library’s collection, this summer/fall exhibit at Mann Library traces the regional New York history of craft beer and hops production and put a spotlight on current developments that suggest a promising future for hops farmers, microbrewers and beer connoisseurs.
