Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Steve Hindy travels to Manhattan to celebrate the craft beer revolution.
Stephen Hindy is co-Founder, Chairman and President of The Brooklyn Brewery, one of America’s top 25 breweries. A former journalist, he became interested in home-
brewing while serving as a Beirut-based Middle East Correspondent for The Associated Press. Back in the states as Newsday’s assistant foreign editor in 1988, he began brewing his own beer and persuaded his neighbor, banker Tom Potter, they should quit their jobs and start a brewery. Hindy is a member of the Board of Directors of the Beer Institute and The Brewers Association. He is a director of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Alliance, chairman of the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, former chair of Brooklyn’s Tourism Consortium and a former member of Community Board 1. Hindy also serves on the Board of Transportation Alternatives and the Alcohol Beverage Manufacturer’s Research Foundation. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Ellen, principal of Intermediate School 89 in Manhattan. With Potter, Hindy co-authored Beer School: Bottling Success at the Brooklyn Brewery, Forward by NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, published by John Wiley & Sons.
