East Aurora Has A New Bar & Beer Store with Aurora Brew Works

East Aurora Has A New Bar & Beer Store with Aurora Brew Works

Alli and I are on record as being lovers of East Aurora, so it should be no surprise that I fell in love all over again when we visited Aurora Brew Works last weekend. We stopped in East Aurora for a lunch at Elm Street Bakery (one of our favorites) and happened to drive by ABW and Alli noticed their sign outside. I assumed the building was a standard craft beer retail store but was very pleasantly surprised when I walked in and saw a couple tables and taps.

Aurora Brew Works is part beer store and part bar, you will find a large selection of craft beers that are available for purchase as 6 packs and single bottles. For just an extra $1 you can pay a corking fee and enjoy the beer right there at the store.

Grisanti Law Signed By Cuomo Supports Craft Beer Industry

Grisanti Law Signed By Cuomo Supports Craft Beer Industry

Senator Mark Grisanti (R-60) today announced that Governor Cuomo has signed a package of laws to support the craft beer industry.  This legislation will help increase demand for locally grown farmer products, support local breweries and wineries and expand industry related economic development and tourism    The laws keeps intact a tax benefit for small beer breweries, exempts those that produce small batches of beer from paying an annual State Liquor Authority fee, and creates a “Farm Brewery License” so craft breweries can expand their operations through opening restaurants or selling beer related products.  Grisanti sponsored the original Bill S. 5829 that sought to help small craft breweries expand their operations to include shops or restaurants.
