Hill. The Director of Brewing Operations and visionary behind the Alvarado Street Brewing empire is currently overseeing the birth of his next major project: a brewpub in Carmel Plaza for his Yeast of Eden brand.

Plumbing lines for the refrigerant, wiring, coordinating sub- contractors. All the equipment is pretty much ready. We just need to finish." The work remaining is largely unseen while guests filter in. The restaurant portion of the brewpub commenced a soft opening on December 13, inviting diners and drinkers to stop by and sample Eden's array of nosh and tipples. "The grand opening will probably be in mid- January.
