In anticipation of Beer Boom, the upcoming documentary on New York City brewing, Jimmy talks to the people who made the movie possible. Filmmakers Eric Schleyer and Andrew Coury, and producer Aaron Bell of Canataro Park Avenue Financial join Jimmy in the studio alongside one of the documentary’s main characters, Rich Castagna of Bridge and Tunnel Brewery. The five years Schleyer and Coury spent filming Beer Boom gave them a firsthand look at the city’s rapidly changing beer scene. They talk about how Castagna grew a brewery out of his garage, and the ten thousand pounds of rocks he had to move before he could open his current location in Ridgewood, Queens.
