Harlem Brewing Company, was founded in 2000. When Celeste Beatty brewed her first batch of beer, she found her vocation. She loved the process and the smell of the boiling barley. It reminded her of cooking soup with her mother in the South as a child.

Ms. Beatty’s beer journey began in her apartment near Marcus Garvey Park nearly two decades ago, after a friend gave her a home-brewing kit. She began hosting brewing sessions in her living room, teaching the craft to her family and friends. Beer became an “interesting platform for me to bring those people together and enjoy a great beer and have dialogue,” said Ms. Beatty, 53, who has lived in Harlem for 25 years. She turned her passion into a business, the Harlem Brewing Company.
