New brew day on the roof here at the Eataly NYC Birreria. Teo, Leo , and I perused the Eataly store aisles this morning. An ingredient-inspiration walk about. We've decided to do a 7% abv amber ale with ugli fruit, fresh grated Ginger, and Two kinds of Italian honey.

So last night was the super-double- secret opening of Birreria, the rooftop brewery at Eataly NYC. My brew-buddies Leo and Teo flew in from Rome and Turin respectively. We met on the rooftop and the first thing we celebrated was Teo's prescient design prowess.

Last Night I took my children to a Robert Mapplethorp show opening at Sean Kelly Gallery in NYC. It was a really cool concept where 50 people from 50 states got to flip through a library of over 2000 images to each choose one.

I'm in Chico, California participating in back-to-back brews with some of my greatest friends in the beer world this week. Dogfish and Sierra Nevada will be releasing a much bigger batch of Life &
