A Sneak Peek at Eataly's New Rooftop Brewery, Birreria

FLATIRON -- There will be craft beer served on a rooftop, but don't call Eataly's Birreria a beer garden, said partner Adam Saper at a sneak peek of the new space on Wednesday night.

It is, after all, still one of Mario Batali's creations and the food will be important, too.

"We are a restaurant," Saper said. "The food is awesome. The beer is awesome. And together they're even better."
