The Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association formed in 2013 as a NYS non-profit and 501.c.6 during a renaissance in our region’s craft brewing industry that has seen the rebirth of breweries, brewpubs, barley growing, hopyards, and malt houses.  Our mission is to restore and preserve Buffalo Niagara’s brewing heritage and to unite those who make local beer with those who love it.   The Buffalo Niagara Brewers Association exists to unify the Buffalo Niagara craft beer community in order to increase regional sales of craft beer through promotions, marketing, public awareness,  consumer education, and to monitor and assure a thriving craft beer and brewing industry within the region.  We achieve this by putting on events such as Buffalo Beer Week, the Buffalo Brewers Fest at Canalside, Farm to Pint Week,  the Canadian American Beer Festival, Buffalo Brewers Invitational, and our monthly Meet the Brewers Nights.
