    Lost Breweries of Roxbury and Jamaica Plain

    In 1900, Boston had the most breweries per person of any city in the country - and the overwhelming majority of them were in the Stony Brook area of Roxbury and Jamaica Plain. During the heyday of Boston breweries, this area was the center of the industry with at least 24 breweries along the banks of the Stony Brook. Learn about about the history of brewing in Boston and the people who established the breweries in our city. The speaker is Michael Reiskind, vice-president and historian of the JP Historical Society, who has been researching Boston's historic breweries for twenty years. The event is free and open to the public. Co-sponsored by Haley House, Discover Roxbury, Roxbury Historical Society and the Jamaica Plain Historical Society.
