Buffalo Brewing Company has acquired the former Schreiber Brewing Company bottling works, located at 662 Fillmore Ave.
The redevelopment is expected to take three years to complete. Once completed, the complex will house the brewery’s production facility, tasting room and restaurant, the Buffalo Brewseum in the old Schreiber offices, and warehousing for local brewing tank importer, Ideal Brew Systems, Inc.
“This was the second site we eyed for Buffalo Brewing Company back in 2010 and we were unfortunately unable to put all the pieces together for acquisition at the time. The passion for this property and its’ history is significant to myself and my wife as we’ve revisited its’ story many times throughout the years, growing an appreciation for Anthony Schreiber himself and all that he had done for the neighborhood.” stated John Domres, Jr., president of Buffalo Brewing Company.
“One of my main goals when opening a brewery, was to relocate to one of Buffalo’s few remaining historic breweries, the very places where a hundred and twenty-two years ago our ancestors were doing the very same things that we do today, from wort production, kegging/bottling, and milling grain.”
Buffalo Brewing, which is currently located at 314 Myrtle Ave., is set to reopen in mid-June for full retail operations.
