Big Ditch Brewing Company is a start-up of a production craft beer microbrewery located in downtown Buffalo.

The Brewing Company is among the bars that will be featured at the 2014 Buffalo Oktobeerfest this weekend, Saturday, October 18. Over 100 fall, seasonal and German craft beers will be available to sample at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.
