As the craft beer movement moves full speed ahead in Greater Buffalo, a new magazine dedicated to the topic has emerged. WNY Craft Beer Magazine is a free quarterly print publication that highlights the cold, frothy virtues of living here. The magazine’s initial print run is 5000 copies, and is available at all Consumer’s Beverages retail store locations* as well as local bars and restaurants. Speaking of Consumer’s Beverage, don’t you think that it’s about time that one opens up in Downtown Buffalo?
“The goal of WNY Craft beer Magazine is to expand the appreciation and awareness of craft beer in our area,” said WNY Craft Beer Magazine Publisher and General Manager Matt Davison. “We believe there is a real appetite for information and news related to the growing craft beer scene in our region, and we hope to provide such content for interested readers.”
Pick up the inaugural edition and read about Hamburg Brewing Company, the Blue Monk and Consumer’s Craft Beer Corner at Coca-Cola Field (hey, at least they have a presence). In the end, there’s info on beer tourism, breweries, bars, brewers and beerology.
“We pride ourselves on delivering unique articles that showcase the brewers, bars, distributors, and consumers who make the local craft beer scene what it is today,” said WNY Craft Beer Magazine Content Manager and frequent Buffalo News “Gusto” section contributor Matt Kresconko (aka “The Buffalo Brewhound”).
*In addition to Consumer’s Beverages location, you can also find copies of WNY Craft Beer Magazine at the following establishments: August Bistro and Bar, Aurora Brew Works, Village Beer Merchant, Premier Gourmet, Kegworks, Hamburg Brewing Company, Community Beer Works, Resurgence Brewing Company, Ellicottville Brewing Company, Pearl Street Brewing Company, Pan American Grille, Lenox Grill, The Eagle House, Colter Bay, Blue Monk, Cole’s, Century Grill, Elm Street Bakery, Pizza Plant, Brick Oven Bistro, Gene McCarthy’s, and Mademoiselle Gentleman’s Club & Tap House.
