Brewing in Buffalo has continually evolved from its beginnings in the early 1800s to its present-day revival.

Today, Buffalo’s brewing culture is returning with the opening of numerous craft breweries around the city.

Join Explore Buffalo for a four-hour bus tour on Saturday, Feb. 28, to view locations important to Buffalo’s brewing past, learn about the history of brewing in the Queen City, and visit several craft breweries for interior tours and product sampling. The tour begins at Gene McCarthy’s, 73 Hamburg St., Buffalo, at 1 p.m. and concludes at 5 p.m.
