Steve Hindy, author and the co-founder, chairman and president of Brooklyn Brewery, one of America’s top 20 breweries it aims to brew flavorful beers that enrich the life, tradition and culture of the communities it serves
A former journalist, Mr. Hindy learned to brew beer during a six-year stay in the Middle East while serving as a Beirut-based Middle East Correspondent for the Associated Press. Upon his return to his home in Brooklyn, he and Potter, his downstairs neighbor, quit their jobs and founded the brewery in 1988. The duo soon hired graphic designer Milton Glaser, best known as the creator of the logo for the I Love New York campaign, to create the company logo and identity and they and their company began its successful journey.
Brooklyn’s beers are currently distributed in 25 states and 20 countries, and its award-winning roster of year-round, seasonal and specialty beers have gained the Brewery notoriety as one of the top craft beer producers in the world. Mr. Hindy has also published a number of critically acclaimed books on the subject such as Beer School: Bottling Success at the Brooklyn Brewery and The Brewmaster’s Table: Discovering the Pleasures of Real Beer with Real Food”
As one of the founding players in the movement, Hindy can give a true insider’s account of the personalities, battles and alliances that colored the early days of craft beer and will give hope to any upstart looking to make his voice heard.
