Buffalo beer lovers rejoice, for the days of ridiculous beer riches are upon you. The events of Buffalo Beer Week are under way.
From smoked Rauschbiers with barbecue tonight at Fat Bob's (41 Virginia Place) to the name-that-craft-brew contest Saturday at Mr Goodbar (1110 Elmwood Ave.) there's a bevy of brewtastic events coming up in the next few days.
Special beers are pouring at brew hotspots including Coles, Consumers Beverages, The Village Beer Merchant, Pizza Plant, Gene McCarthy's Tavern and more. Many events have a nominal charge or provide that much-sought-after beverage: free beer. If you can't slake your thirst around these parts this week, you're not really trying.
