Brew at the Bison

June 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Come join area homebrewers from the Buffalo Beer Goddesses, Das Hausbrauers von Buffalo, Niagara Association of Homebrewers, and Sultans of Swig, as well as independent brewers, for our annual Brew at the Bison. Homebrewers, bring your mobile brewing gear and ingredients to Flying Bison, set up in the parking lot, and make beer. We will have access to Flying Bison’s hot liquor tank, so you can get your brew day off to a very quick start.

Where: Flying Bison Brewery (840 Seneca St, Buffalo)
When: Saturday, June 15th. 8:00am start

Please register here so we can plan accordingly:

The theme this year is German styles (see list below for ideas). There will be a homebrew competition, organized by Tim Belczak, for any German style beers brewed at the event. Acceptable styles and additional details are below.

Lunch is going to be pot luck so bring a favorite dish to share. NAH will bring bratwurst and a small grill.

This event is rain or shine so please bring a pop-up tent if you have one.

Hope to see you there!
