East Aurora Has A New Bar & Beer Store with Aurora Brew Works

East Aurora Has A New Bar & Beer Store with Aurora Brew Works

Alli and I are on record as being lovers of East Aurora, so it should be no surprise that I fell in love all over again when we visited Aurora Brew Works last weekend. We stopped in East Aurora for a lunch at Elm Street Bakery (one of our favorites) and happened to drive by ABW and Alli noticed their sign outside. I assumed the building was a standard craft beer retail store but was very pleasantly surprised when I walked in and saw a couple tables and taps.

Aurora Brew Works is part beer store and part bar, you will find a large selection of craft beers that are available for purchase as 6 packs and single bottles. For just an extra $1 you can pay a corking fee and enjoy the beer right there at the store.
