Summer with the kids is fun, but if you need an adult outing idea this weekend- check out this Brewery Tour here in the Bronx. Woodlawn Cemetery has partnered with The Bronx Historical Society for this one-of-a-kind tour. Read below for more info:
Woodlawn Cemetery is the final resting place to many notables and their families who have contributed to a beer-brewing legacy in The Bronx dating back to the 1850s. These mostly German families have made their impact in communities such as Melrose, Morrisania, Mott Haven, and other areas in the South Bronx. To celebrate this legacy, this tour will take participants on our Woodlawn Conservancy Trolley, beginning at Woodlawn Cemetery and then on to the borough’s newest breweries and beer halls. The Bronx County Historical Society will lead the tour.
The tour starts and ends at the Jerome Avenue entrance of Woodlawn Cemetery.
We will be meeting at the Jerome Avenue and Bainbridge Avenue gate at 11:45 AM and the Trolley Tour will begin at 12:00 PM.
There will be a one-hour lunch break in in Little Italy (Arthur Avenue). Lunch is not included.
We are located directly across the street from the Woodlawn stop on the #4 subway.
Free parking available in Woodlawn Cemetery.
There are only 30 seats so tickets must be purchased in advance.
This is a tour you won’t want to miss! Space is limited so make your reservation today.
