Video: Partner in Alphabet City Wine Co. Gets Into the Beer Business

After four years of whetting the whistles of wine drinkers in the far East Village, David Hitchner, co-owner of In Vino Winebar & Restaurant and Alphabet City Wine Co., is striking out on his own. This time, he’ll be tapping kegs instead of popping corks, as he plans to open Alphabet City Beer Co. at 96 Avenue C next February. Mr. Hitchner recently took The Local on an early tour of the space.
