Buffalo & area breweries

I've Googled for breweries in the area - I was hoping people could tell us if there are any brand new breweries that might not have websites yet, if I'm missing any, or if any of these no longer exist.

Here's what I've got:

Flying Bison

Pearl Street

Gordon Biersch

Bard's Tale

I know there's a Beer Works (I assume isn't similar to the ones we went to in Boston).

Southern Tier

Also saw two in Hamburg, N.Y., but I'm not sure if they're operational

Mainspring Brewery

Hamburg Brewing Co.

(We'll do the county fair if they are open, but if not, then we'll likely stick to Buffalo and a trip down to Southern Tier).

Not sure when you will be in town but thought I would pass on the information to this event in Bemus Point NY, which is close to the Southern Tier Brewery.

I think you are correct in the the Community Beer works in not similar to the one in Boston as it is owned by locals in Buffalo.

For some more information on the Buffalo Community Beer Works have a look:


There is a new micro in the works called Big Ditch, but I don't know if it will be operating in time for your visit.

Southern Tier makes some great brews.
