Work continues to inch along at Hofbrauhaus on Scott Street but the finish line is within sight. The beer hall, under construction since 2017, is expected to open “in about a month” according to restaurateur Kevin Townsel.
A maypole was recently added to the courtyard area.
The $5 million German beer hall is occupying the former Upstate Milk Co-Operative and Bison Chip Dip plant at 190 Scott Street, across from Lofts @ Elk Terminal and The Fairmont mixed-use complex.
Once open, Hofbräuhaus Buffalo will feature stein lockers, a gift shop, a beer garden, and a two-tier brewery serving ‘tank to tap’ brews.
Hofbrauhaus Buffalo will be the ninth franchised facility in the United States. It will employ 100 and have a capacity of over 900 customers in the beer hall.
