Visited before and after the Buffalo Brewfest. Absolutely huge bar with lots of patio space (even if some of them overlook the I-90 or whatever the hell its called). Fairly decent atmosphere, and I bet it gets rammed on gameday due to its proximity to the baseball stadium and the HSBC arena. The beers I had were pretty mediocre, and for that reason I doubt I'll ever go back next time I swing through town. They were all lacking a little something, although the best of the bunch was the (Canal) Street Brawler stout, which was passable. I ordered the smoked gouda soup, and it made a pleasing lunch. The rest of the menu looks like regular bar fare. Service was good and friendly, so no complaints there, although when I tried to order the IIPA from the chalkboard it turned out it had not been on tap for 4 days, but you know how hard it is to wipe chalk off a board... Prices seemed to be inline with what I expected.
Why do I keep coming back here? Perhaps its because its so close to the bus station and makes a good place to kill time? I've had two subsequent visits. Its still not a real beer destination, falling between two stools, with all the beer being better than macro, but worse than your average craft. Pales in comparison to Buffalo's other beer bars.

Passing through Buffalo, stopped here for dinner and some brews, really enjoyed the place. Service was fast and friendly, food tasted good, prices were reasonable. Their house beers were overall pretty good and I hope to go back the next time I am passing through.

Stopped in before a Sabres game. This is the place to go, only a block away from the rink. The main level was full, but they told us we could seat ourselves in the heated outdoor patio. I was a little concerned when they told us this, but they have a full bar and lots of room. We didn't feel the cold, but that could have been the beers that helped. We had to go to the bar to get our own drinks and order our food, but its a good system because the food was quick considering how busy the place was. The beer selection was overwhelming, which isn't a bad thing in my books. There were 10-12 taps and lots of selection from light to dark beer. I tried a double IPA and a raspberry stout. Both were very tasty. Food was average pub food, but well done. We had wings, fries and other finger foods.

It's a good stop for a good cold beer and a good burger. It is a really nice, comfortable atmosphere - laid back... Pretty decent selection of beers, locals, crafts and all. They seem to always have some Great Lakes on tap - good for me. I'd recommend this stop. we have enjoyed it the few times we've been there.

Food and Atmosphere are the reasons to come here. It has a very laid-back brewpub feel making it very easy to relax and enjoy a few beers. Gone here a few times for lunch and was always satisfied with the food especially the wings and their specialty pizzas.
