At one time Boston had more breweries per person than any other city in the country. Now, the Roxbury Historical Society aims to explore their connection to Jamaica Plain and Roxbury at an upcoming event.
Part of the Roxbury History Speaker Series, on Wednesday members of the association and Michael Reiskind, vice-president of the JP Historical Society, will explore the breweries' deep roots in the community and their impact on development in the neighborhoods.
Feliepe Oliveira, the founder of Percival Beer Company, will also be on hand to discuss his new craft beer company and the inspiration behind his Dot Ale 1630, Kompadre Lager, and soon to be released Roxbury brand.
Wednesday’s event will be held at Urbano Project at 29 Germania St. in Jamaica Plain. It starts at 7 p.m.
