For now, Ellicottville Brewing backs off on plans to take over Labatt Brew House site

The unavailability of labor was a big enough concern to kill the deal, at least for now.

Peter Kreinheder, founder/president at EBC, says he was in talks last month to take over the space in Buffalo’s Cobblestone District at 79 Perry Street, the former Temp Fabrication/Peerless Fabrication building redeveloped by Pegula Sports & Entertainment, which has remained closed since the pandemic shutdown last year.

The unavailability of labor was a big enough concern to kill the deal, he said, at least for now.
