Who We Are
Community Beer Works is Buffalo, NY’s first nanobrewery. We began providing fresh, high quality, local beer in April 2012: look for us at many of the better beer venues around Buffalo.
The founders of CBW all have roots in Buffalo and we want our brewery to be an integral part of our city and the neighborhood our brewery is located in. We are donating our spent grain to T Meadow Farms, disposing of it in an ecologically friendly, mutually beneficial manner.
Our goal is to foster a sense of community and place, enriching our hometown through the production of damn good beer.
“Embeer Buffalo” is the slogan of Community Beer Works.
Our motto. Our battle cry. Our goal is not only to succeed as a brewery, but to better the beer culture of Buffalo. Our city loves beer, and has the potential to be one of the premiere beer destinations in the country. Help make that happen. Embeer Buffalo.
