Today we’re featuring Seltzer Works, a short film that takes a look at the last seltzer bottler, Brooklyn’s Kenny Gomberg. In the early 1900s, thousands of seltzer deliverymen criss-crossed the nation, schlepping heavy glass bottles full of fizzy water to millions of thirsty customers. Today, there are only a handful of deliverymen left in the country.
