Blue Monk is a Great American Beer Bar in Buffalo, NY

Some members of the Buffalo craft beer community have reached out to let us know that is looking for readers to place their votes when it comes to a certain Great American Beer Bar in Buffalo. In the past, Blue Monk has made the list of top ten beer bars in the Northeast, and with a little help from our friends, we believe that we can get the Buffalo craft beer destination into the top bracket once again, this time on another highly regarded beer publication. “This voting is important obviously for Blue Monk to be more recognized on a national level,” said Blue Monk owner Mike Shatzel. “But also to the local breweries that are looking to make a regional and national splash. It will help make Buffalo a viable option in craft beer travel.”
