Exclusive: Jeff McInnis Responds to Ex-Wife's Allegations of Cheating, Abandonment

Earlier this week, Miami.com reported that Melissa McInnis, ex-wife of Top Chef alum and former Yardbird top toque Jeff McInnis, had some pretty strong allegations about her ex-husband.

The former Mrs. McInnis, who has a young daughter with the chef, told Miami.com's Lesley Abravanel that, "Jeff abandoned me and his small infant child." Melissa McInnis also said that 50 Eggs' John Kunkel gave her ex a million dollars when they parted ways. "He lied about the money he got from John and emptied our bank account," she said, adding  "I will fight until we get what's rightfully ours. We helped him build his name, his brand, everything, and for him to be this despicable and abandon us, it's absurd. I do not know how he can look himself in the mirror every day."

In addition, Melissa McInnis told Eater Miami that her ex-husband is a "backstabbing buttface."

Back in July, McInnis departed Yardbird, telling Short Order he wanted to "get back to why I fell in love with this industry in the first place."

Another new brewery could be coming to Miami. Alchemy and Science Brewing Collaborative, the Vermont-based company with a growing brood of craft breweries, filed a trademark application for Concrete Beach Brewery in August.

Even more telling, a basic search for the aforementioned name yields three trademark results, all of them filed by A&S, one of them containing the word "Stiltsville". Last July we reported that A&S, also a subsidiary of Boston Beer Corporation, might be staking a claim somewhere in Miami.
