2nd stop on ’Brew tours 2012’. 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 ’13’ 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.
Buffalo Brew Tour 2016. Stopped in to see their new place and it’s much larger and a really nice place to have a beer. Plenty of seats and several servers. Met Tim again and had a great time! The Oak aged Barleywine was great!
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.

one of my favourite beer tours. My kids played frisbe while I sample everything including stuff in the hopper. Gifts, bottles.
If you didn’t know where you were going, you’d probably pass the place. Since I’m 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 isn’t normally bottled. This place isn’t 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 you’re just curious.
