The Ithaca Brew Fest is right around the corner, so it's a perfect time to be talking to the man behind the brew at Ithaca Beer, Jeff "Chief" O'Neil. He's an enthusiastic beer maker and "Hop Head" and has been creating award-winning ales for Ithaca's oldest full-time brewery since 2002. In fact he was such an enthusiastic guest, we got more interview from him than we could fit into the podcast. Instead, we've created a separate uncut version of the interview featuring an extra 15 minutes of our conversation that you can download:

Hey, great episode! And, thanks for such nice words about Ithaca's Food Web! Keep in touch, and looking forward to your next episode.
Some new entries for your list:
Coal House Cafe (replacing Queen of Tarts). Supposedly opening today (9/8/09); so you might check it out if you're in "catch up mode".
Sammy's Italian Buffet & Grill (replacing King Buffet). It isn't open yet, though. It appears to be owned by the people behind Sammy's Pizzeria. There's a video for it at http://www.vimeo.com/6003075.
Thanks for the tips, D.E.! We'll be sure to follow up on those, and we're keeping an eye out for the official opening of Five Guys, plus Wildfire in the former Lost Dog. September's turning into a busy month for dining!
