The Best Breweries in the Emerging North Towns Beer Scene
By now we know about the amazing Micro-Breweries here in Buffalo. Flying Bison, Pressure Drop Brewing, Buffalo Brewing Company, Resurgence Brewing Company, and Community Beer Works are all well known, and all have 4.5 stars or better on Yelp.
But if you live in the North Towns like me, sometimes you don’t feel like making the trek into the city to find that perfect pint.
