Have you heard? Due to Covid-19, we’ve temporarily changed our motto to “Stay In, Buffalo”. And for the foreseeable future we will be posting content that shares how our community can continue to support local businesses while adhering to guidelines set by the CDC.
REAL. BUFFALO. BEER
Buffalocal brands are distributed throughout Western New York by Try-It Distributing, the premier beer distributor serving the city since 1928. You can find Buffalocal brands at your local grocery stores, neighborhood bottle shops, convenience stores, the stadium, the arena, the ballpark, restaurants, pubs, and music venues.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Buffalo has an impeccable beer scene. When we think we’ve seen it all, we are reminded that Buffalo goes beyond the typical beer with some mega creations and collaborations. Each week we round up the biggest news and events, all happening in the beer community. While the beer scene is currently making adjustments due to COVID-19, we still have plenty to share in this weeks Buffalo Beer Buzz:
