Buffalo Beer Week is back and bigger than ever! Kicking off Thursday night September 13th (Beer Week Eve) and running to Sunday, September 23rd, Buffalo Beer Week will feature lots of unique events at the best bars, pubs, restaurants, breweries, and other craft beer destinations throughout the Buffalo-Niagara region.
The 10-day lineup features events such as beer dinners, tastings at your local pub, huge ticketed special events, and nearly everything in between. The overarching theme for the 2018 Buffalo Beer Week is “Beer Education” and we aim to celebrate the depth of skill, knowledge, and education required to make our beloved beverage. But this also highlights the growing depth of knowledge of craft beer that our local bartenders, home-brewers, teaching institutions, enthusiast clubs, retailers, and generally anyone who loves beer and it’s many deep and multiple facets. If you are really into craft beer, you have probably discovered that craft beer is a subject of lifelong learning that you will never come to the end of. We encourage venues to plan events that highlight and promote craft beer education in fun and engaging ways. If beer is your passion, learning about it is unique in that it’s a very dynamic, tasty, and endlessly entertaining subject of study & research. Also, while there are many among us who already view Buffalo as a world class beer destination, Buffalo Beer Week gives us the occasion to get up on our soapbox and educate the world about Buffalo as a great place to visit if you like great craft beer.
The initial schedule of events will be made available to the public on BuffaloBeerWeek.comby September 1, and additional events will be added to the lineup as Beer Week approaches. Brochures containing the list of events will also be available at participating Beer Week venues throughout Western New York in the weeks leading up to Beer week.
