Thirsty pub-goers all over Western New York can agree - local, craft beer is the best. 

Why Craft Beer Is The Best

Craft beer, aka beer produced by a smaller, independent brewery, is one of Western New York’s best exports. When you sip on a cold, local craft beer, you’re not just impressing your palate with unique flavor combinations that came from the mind of a local brewer. Some nutritionists even say that craft beer can even be healthier for you than a traditional, domestic one!
