The years-long taproom search is finally over for One-Eyed Cat Brewing, who will set up shop next year on Main Street in Williamsville inside the former Pairings Wine Bar.

The space offers approximately 2,000 square feet, though it needs to be adjusted for a taproom. Since it is a former wine bar, they will need to install draft towers and plan to open with eight taps. The location features 20 parking spaces, as well as street parking nearby.

For food, they have partnered with Pork Bellies BBQ, an award-winning smoked meat and BBQ company, who will run the taproom’s kitchen.

The brewhouse will start as a 2bbl system with plans for eight fermenters. They also plan to open with a barrel aging program featuring 20 barrels, a combination of bourbon, tequila, gin and rum barrels.

They plan to have an outdoor patio with a gas-fed fire pit, lawn area for music or lounging, and a lounge area with a fireplace and TV for Bills games.

If you’re unfamiliar with their beer, a few of the eccentric beer styles you can expect are a kettle soured imperial stout, Mexican hot chocolate porter, all-Citra hopped imperial IPA, smoked Bohemian pilsner and, in my opinion, their best beer, a bourbon/oak infused English Barleywine called Maenad’s Kiss. They’ve also honed in on classic beer styles such as hefeweizen, cream ale and ESB, among others.

They hope to open by March 2022. Cheers!

One-Eyed Cat Brewing Co.

Opening at 5893 Main St, Williamsville, NY 14221
