"We created a bar [with Spuyten Duyvil] that wasn't a dive bar, sports bar or frat bar which most beer bars were at the time. The vibe is much more cafe-like, there are a lot of women who go there, we have a pretty serious wine program by the glass. We had to do everything; we couldn't just have good beer." [4:45]
