Brewing beer was one of the industries that helped to build Buffalo at the turn of the century. Then prohibition killed the industry, taking down scores of iconic Buffalo breweries at the same time. Flying Bison was the first stand alone brewery to open since Iroquois Brewery shuttered its doors (after prohibition in 1972). Since that time, Flying Bison has played a key role in this city’s fascinating craft beer comeback, and founder Tim Herzog has certainly been an integral part of helping to rekindle the movement.
These days, it’s a common occurrence for a brewery to open in Buffalo. The market has been flooded with amazing artisanal beers, that continue to take over more and more tap handles in the region. But it was not that long ago that Herzog was waving the solitary brewery flag. Today he is recognized as the brewer who led Buffalo’s brewery comeback.
On Tuesday, January 26, 2016, Lille Association, Inc. presents “Meeting Buffalo” – a lecture given by Tim Herzog. Come listen to the man himself… the guy who believed in Buffalo brewing before many of today’s brewers were even born.
