Buffalo on Tap

Buffalo on Tap

Into craft beer? Don’t miss this incredible event where over 75 craft breweries will be sampling their brews at Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

This event is going to rock so hard that you’ll need a cab to get home! No, seriously, there needs to be a Designated Driver because no one is going to want to miss any of this craft beer.

On January 17th Buffalo Niagara Convention Center will host Buffalo on Tap. This is part of an ongoing Craft Beer tour called America on Tap which features about 75 breweries from all over the US sampling around 150 brews. And you know what makes me slightly smugly happy? Two dozen of them are from New York State, and most of them from Western NY!
