In Episode 2,  ABC Gotham's amateur historians, Kate and Kathleen, discuss beer and breweries  in the 5 boroughs throughout history.  We start in the 1850's with Knickerbocker, Ruppert, Ballantine, Schlitz, Rhenigold, and Piels, and take you all the way up to today with Brooklyn Brewery, Bronx Brewery, Sixpoint, and Chelsea.  Beer is unstoppable!  Neither Prohibition nor anti- German sentiment could stop NYC brewing for good.  You better grab a pint for this episode, because all that talking is going to make you thirsty.
