Pews & Brews: A Tour of the Buffalo Religious Arts Center

On Wednesday, September 23, Buffalo’s Young Preservationists (BYP) invite you to come spend some time at one of this city’s unsung architectural heroes – the Buffalo Religious Arts Center (BRAC). This event will show you exactly why we need to preserve the churches that still stand in this city.

As unfortunate as it is, that we have already lost some of our irreplaceable church architectural stock (including Saint Mary’s on the Hill, lest we ever forget!), the Buffalo Religious Art Center should be commended for saving, preserving and displaying rescued religious art relics for the whole city to view.

Now it’s time to view… and drink some brews while doing it. During the event board member Ben Spitler will be giving tours of the Religious Arts Center, which was founded in 2008.

Local Beer & Pizza will be available for purchase. All sale proceeds go directly to the church as a donation from BYP.

6pm – Tour

7pm – Beer

Additional tours will be provided depending on attendance…
