In January 2016 we wrote about the amazing dedication of third generation seltzer delivery man who worked for Gomberg Seltzer Works in Brooklyn, New York. Since that time, Alex Gomberg, who formed Brooklyn Seltzer Boys with his father Kenny and uncle Irv Resnick, is a fourth generation seltzer man who is doing everything he can to keep his family’s tradition going.
