W e lco m e to B u f fa lo your Brewcation Destination Can you tell we’ve been busy? With 20 breweries spread across neighborhoods and towns all over the region, craft beer is a leading catalyst of our local renaissance. Once industrialized neighborhoods and sleepy communities are becoming hotspots for breweries and beer gardens. Our former pillars of industry are being filled with cold brews and warm spirits. And oft overlooked locales are becoming headquarters of hops. We’re even coining terms for this suds-centric revitalization with phrases like “Beer Oriented Development” and “The Brew Economy”. Because what burgeoning community should be without a tasty craft beer to knock back after a hard day’s work?
