Buffalo’s rich industrial past is soaked in beer. In 1919, on the eve of Prohibition, Buffalo was home to twenty-nine breweries and featured more than 8,000 drinking establishments But it wasn’t until the end of the 20th century that brewing returned to the city with the opening of Flying Bison Brewing Company and Pearl Street Grill & Brewery. Today, the Buffalo area has 26 craft breweries and six distilleries, including Community Beer Works, Hamburg Brewing Company, Resurgence Brewing Company, Big Ditch Brewing, Rusty Nickel Brewing, 42 North Brewing, Black Squirrel Distillery and Tommyrotter Distillery.
