What does The Modern Trail mean to you? And how do you think Brooklyn Brewery’s Mash Tour fits into the idea?
I think the idea of variety and versatility is what links the two so well here. The Mash has always been a way for us to connect with the creative classes in the various neighborhoods and cities we visit on the tour. Within that group, you’ve got artists, musicians, chefs, designers, entrepreneurs, and other innovators.
The notion of being ready for anything and anyone ties in really well to the idea of the Modern Trail. And I grew up, improbably for an NYC native, hunting quail, pheasant and chukkar partridge, with dogs and shotguns, often on horseback. I’m good out in the woods – my dad taught me well. And we always had great gear – we were geeks about it.
