BUFFALO, N.Y. — Beer lovers have ten days of festivities ahead of them as the Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association (BNBA) and Buffalo Beer League open the 10th annual Buffalo Beer Week— a celebration of community, camaraderie, and of course, Western New York's variety of awesome brews.
The Official Opening Gala takes place tonight, Friday, September 13th from 5-9 p.m. at Flying Bison Brewing. Sample over 25 beers from members of the BNBA and meet the brewers. Live music will be provided on the patio by Tony DeRosa. Casa Azul & Kindred Kreek’s Farm to Table food trucks will be on site. Admission is $20 and includes multiple drink tokens.
"We are excited to once again host the Buffalo Beer Week Opening Gala, which serves as a small scale beer festival representing the BNBA breweries," says Colin Herzog, Flying Bison brewer and Gala organizer.
