As part of the Erie Canal Museum‘s ongoing Erie Eats: Erie Canal Foodways Project, the Museum will host a lecture by author Don Cazentre covering the historic changes and modern trends in beer, wine, spirits, and other alcoholic beverages across the Erie Canal corridor.
Don is a writer for Syracuse.com, The Post-Standard and NYUP.com. He has covered the trends and changes in beer, wine, and spirits across Upstate New York since the mid-1990s. He is the author of New York Breweries, 2nd ed. (Stackpole; 2014) and Spirits & Cocktails of Upstate New York (The History Press; 2017). He is currently part of a team working on a complete history of beer and brewing in New York state for the SUNY Press.
Funded in part through the generous support of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and William G. Pomeroy Foundation.
The Erie Canal Museum is partially supported by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
