Here in Western New York, we do a lot of things well. Food and drinks are definitely two of those things. In fact, you could argue those are two things we do best.
When it comes to drinks, Buffalo absolutely loves their craft beer, hard ciders and seltzers.
It's unreal how many awesome breweries we have in this region. From Buffalo to Rochester and from Niagara County to the southern tier -- it's an embarrassment of riches. If you go to other regions of the country, they don't have nearly the number of local breweries that Buffalo and Western New York do.
The brewery community is a tight-knit community. It's not an industry that tries to compete against one another, but they support each other.
What are some of the breweries you love in Buffalo? You probably get to places like Resurgence, Ellicottville Brewing Company, Hamburg Brewing and Community Beer Works. But there are so many more who do a tremendous job for beer lovers.
Some of the big name breweries get a lot of love, but here are 10 places that should be on radar for great beer!
