Summary:
Western New York has always had a curious affinity for the drink. Buffalo was built by immigrants from strong social drinking cultures and became a brewing powerhouse. From the German immigrants in the Fruit Belt to the Irish in the Old First Ward, the consumption of alcohol has been part of the fabric of Buffalo. This is history as seen through a pint glass.
