Sam, Vinnie and Mario - In Business Together in NYC
Teo Musso, Brewmaster of Birrificio Le Baladan and Leonardo Di Vincenzo of Birra del Borgo in Italy, and Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Vinnie Cilurzo of the Russian River Brewing are joining forces with Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich, and Italian food emporium Eataly to open a brewery-pub on a New York City rooftop with breathtaking views of the Flatiron and Empire State Buildings at 200 5th Avenue above Eataly, an Italian specialty foods market with several restaurants which pair gourmet foods with artisanal beers and wines.
The four brewers are working together on recipes for the house beers, whicc will feature Italian and American ingredients. The beers will be unpasteurized, unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and hand-pulled through traditional beer engines for the most authentic and pure presentation. The four individual brewers will also occasionally brew beers under their own names on site. The rooftop restaurant project will pair artisanal rustic beers with the artisanal cooking of Chef Mario Batali.
