Seitu documented the Savor The Bronx Breweries & Distilleries Trolley Tour that took place on the trolley that left from 851 Grand Concourse in the Bronx, New York.

The trolley visited Gun Hill Brewery, established in 2014 and produces a variety of beers for all palates ranging from their light seasonable ales to their pitch black stout. Then onto Chelsea Craft Brewing Company, which relocated from downtown Manhattan this year. The company brews over 20 ales annually and their signature Checker Cab Blonde Ale is brewed in the style of a German Kolsch beer. The third, and last stop, the trolley visited the Bronx Brewery founded in 2011 and offers a uniquely diverse range of beers that explore the limits of what a pale ale can be.
