Soak up those ABVs with some food from the kitchen like hand-cut fries with lemon tarragon mayo, a double-decker diner burger, or a vegan Chicago dog.

CIDER HALL Who would’ve thought the vacant industrial warehouses of Black Rock’s Chandler Street would make the perfect setting for a cider-focused bar. Behold, Buffalo Cider Hall is here. A menu of ciders for every palette are on tap – Premium Draft for a semisweet finish, Estate Reserve for semi-dry and the oak aged series for bone dry lovers. When the weather heats up, Buffalo Cider Hall will have one of the coolest outdoor courtyards in town.

Touted as the only winery within the Buffalo city limits, you might be wondering how a winery ended up in a beer and cider brochure. Well that’s because Chateau Buffalo has taken up the art of cider making. Embracing the Polish heritage of their East Side location, try their Polka dry cider or some creative offerings infused with hibiscus, juniper berries and even pumpkins. NIT
