Doctor's practice eyes former Alternative Brews site in Amherst

A physician has won approval from the Amherst Zoning Board of Appeals for his plans to move his family-medicine practice into the former Alternative Brews building on Sheridan Drive.

The area's first bar devoted to craft beer was closed by owner Paul Madsen on Dec. 2 after 22 years in operation at 3488 Sheridan Drive.

Dr. Tajinder Pal Singh now has locations in Cheektowaga and Amherst. The building is under contract, according to a real-estate listing.

Singh needed an area variance because he plans to build out the rear corners of the one-story brick building, and a portion of that work extends several inches too close to a neighboring residential property.

Residents from the neighborhood behind the property who spoke at the Dec. 19 Zoning Board meeting tentatively welcomed Singh's practice.
