Lockport’s New York Beer Project has been brewing fresh craft beer for two years now and what better way to celebrate that feat than with a brand new triple IPA, Righteous Dudette (the older sister of their Righteous Dude Double IPA), at their Righteous 2 Year Anniversary Party, November 18 (8pm-1am). The 70’s-themed gala will feature music from Disco Duck on Floor 2, free tasters of Righteous Dudette for all of those who are dressed in 70’s-inspired attire and a prize will be awarded for the biggest hair.

12 Gates Takes Over the Taps at Buffalo Brewpub

12 Gates and Buffalo Brewpub have teamed up on the new Buffalo Breakfast Stout, and while that beer won’t be ready until December, you can enjoy a number of 12 Gates’ beers as they take over the Brewpub on November 3 (4-7pm). Head brewers from both locations, Scott Shuler (12G) and Chris Townsell (BB), will be on hand to shake hands and kiss babies, while also talking beer as they possibly imbibe a few. 12 Gates will have their flagships Cherry Vanilla Wheat and West Coast Style IPA on tap, in addition to their well-received Mountains of the Moon NEIPA.
