2nd stop on íBrew tours 2012í. Drove by it the 1st time and saw the small sign the 2nd time. Old broken factory parking lot. Factory drinking area. Good service and good info on the wet hopping they did for Saranac. Bought a barleywine to take home. Brew Tour í13í With Bob and Steve. Bob went to HS with Tim Herzog and Steve lived on the same street as Tim. Small world. Thanks for the beer Tim.

Bit out of the way but you will be rewarded by very friendly staff. If you like brewery tours this should be one on your list.

Best beer around, always quality crafted beer. One of the few bright spots in such a dark city.

This place is in the middle of friggin nowhere, very easy to miss. Stuck behind a rundown warehouse building. Smaller place with a few taps, some souveniers and other airplane related stuff. Owner Tim gave a half hour tour and answered all the questions my group had to ask. They had beers on tap and in bottles only available at the brewery. Cool place. Considering its one of the only true breweries in the city of Buffalo you gotta at least try their beer, if your not gonna go to the brewery.

If you didnít know where you were going, youíd probably pass the place. Since Iím an airplane buff, I had to stop here while I was in Buffalo. Glad I did. The owner, Tim, was quite friendly and gave us a quick tour. They had 5 beers on time at the time. Tim even gave me a couple bottled beer, one of which isnít normally bottled. This place isnít fancy, but it is well worth a stop.

Love the aviation theme for their products! Great names and great labels. The oatmeal stout was tasty but not available in bottles yet. The location is a little creepy (behind a derelict factory in a semi-seedy neighbourhood) but you have to start somewhere. Definitely worth a look, even if youíre just curious.

Well, itís a brewery. Incredibly nice people working there, always ready to help and have a chat about some beer. You can of course get samples of what they have before you get your growler filled.
