Explore Gotham’s boozy past in this exhibit, which traces local beer production and consumption over the past several centuries. You’ll learn about New Amsterdam’s first tavern, established by the Dutch West India Company in 1640 to 1644, as well as how beer served as a vital source of nourishment to colonial residents. When you’ve absorbed your fill of local hops history, down a cold one in the beer hall at the end of the exhibit.

I went this past weekend, and FYI, the price of admission does not include a free pint of beer, as I assumed based on the above description - it's $8 for a small cup of the "Beer of the Day," and you can also opt for the beer + pretzel for $10 (pretzels alone are $4 each). It's a nice idea for an exhibit, but I was somewhat underwhelmed, and following the exhibit my friend and I left to grab a few beers that weren't priced at $8 each...
