“All We Want To Do Is Brew Our Brains Out”

At long last Flying Bison is back in operation, and free and clear of the controversy that has kept it shuttered. News traveled fast around the city today, especially in beer circles. This is excellent timing, because further delays would have meant a summer without Flying Bison beer – a scary thought. As it stands now, it looks like FB brews may be available mid-summer. From Tim Herzog, the guy who ‘works’ at the brewery:

“We got one tractor trailer in today (of hops) and one yesterday –  enough to brew for 30 days at increased capacity (the increased capacity means that the 30 day net would have taken 90 days in the past). We’re going to be here all weekend long brewing Buffalo Lager, Aviator, Rusty Chain and then we’re starting the seasonals soon. If all goes well our target is to have beer into bars and restaurants before Fourth of July. All of the legal stuff is done, all  charges have been dismissed and now all we want to do is brew our brains out. We’re excited to be here in Buffalo brewing beer and we’re looking forward to the grand reopening party and BRO readership is all invited… stay tuned for a date. I’m Tim and I work at the brewery… we’re not going anywhere and you can stop by and see us anytime!”
