Grisanti Law Signed By Cuomo Supports Craft Beer Industry

Grisanti Law Signed By Cuomo Supports Craft Beer Industry

Senator Mark Grisanti (R-60) today announced that Governor Cuomo has signed a package of laws to support the craft beer industry.  This legislation will help increase demand for locally grown farmer products, support local breweries and wineries and expand industry related economic development and tourism    The laws keeps intact a tax benefit for small beer breweries, exempts those that produce small batches of beer from paying an annual State Liquor Authority fee, and creates a “Farm Brewery License” so craft breweries can expand their operations through opening restaurants or selling beer related products.  Grisanti sponsored the original Bill S. 5829 that sought to help small craft breweries expand their operations to include shops or restaurants.

Brother's Is Serving Homemade Buffalo Comfort Food

Brother's Is Serving Homemade Buffalo Comfort Food

For the last month my in-laws have been raving about how awesome the food was at Brothers Restaurant and Pub in East Aurora.  I was skeptical, what exactly was going to be different about this place? I love pub food like most Buffalo-ians and trust their opinion on restaurants, but how good/different can a pizza roll really be?  Last week, Alli and I made the trip into our favorite suburb to see what the fuss was all about.  The best part about going out to eat with family is being able to get a little sample of everything, which is exactly what we did on this trip.

Woody's Beach Club is a Hidden Gem on Lake Erie

Woody's Beach Club is a Hidden Gem on Lake Erie

When I found out Woody’s Beach Club had made the top 10 list for WGRZ’s Favorite Restaurants or WNY, I was shocked just like many of the viewers.  I had actually never heard of the restaurant before watching Chef Krista Van Wagner talk about their fresh queso fresco and guacamole and dining out on the beach.  But after learning it was owned and operated by the Curtain Family (Dug’s Dive, The Steer, Lake Effect Diner), I’m even more surprised that it took me this long to hear about the restaurant.  They just opened in 2011 and just started up for the summer a few weeks ago so Alli and I decided to head down on a lazy evening last week.

George's Has Good Food, Great Memories

George's Has Good Food, Great Memories

I grew up only a couple miles away from George’s Hot Dog Stand and have fond memories of the place from my childhood.  Even though I haven’t been back in a while, I am well aware of their menu and how diehard their fans are.  I know many people who look forward to the first day they open their doors for the season.  Since I’ve moved into the city, our dining in the Southtowns in general has dropped off and I’ve been wondering when I’d get another chance to go back to George’s.
