Resurgence Brewing Company has launched a new cocktail menu to complement its beer production.
The cocktail menu will feature 1812 Vodka from Niagara Distilling, Lockhouse gin, Tommyrotter gin and Black Squirrel rum in a small cocktail list focused on highlighting Western New York’s small-batch spirits.
Some of the drinks being offered on the new cocktail menu include:
- Spiked Blood Orange with 1812 Vodka
- Fitzgerald with Tommyrotter Gin
- Dark and Stormy with Black Squirrel Rum and Ginger Kombucha from Bootleg Bucha
- Green Tea Gimlet with Lockhouse Gin
In a recent press release, owner Jeff Ware said, “We wanted to give people who don’t necessarily like beer or wine another option. We won’t be doing shots or changing our identity as a family-friendly, laid-back spot to have a couple of drinks and enjoy yourself. The new cocktails are just going to add another dimension to the experience of Resurgence.”
Since opening, RBC has worked with local wineries and cideries including Blackbird Cider, McKenzie’s Hard Cider, Arrowhead Winery, Black Widow Winery, Freedom Run Winery and Bootleg Kombucha.
“Here at RBC, we have a rising tide mentality,” said Ware, explaining why he decided to use local spirits and ingredients. “Buffalo is the city of good neighbors, and if we help each other out, we all benefit.”
Also, RBC has announced it has implemented extended summer hours and will be open Tuesday through Sunday. Amenities include a family-friendly taproom and biergarten.
Resurgence Brewing Company has up to 15 original craft beers on its menu at all times, plus cider, sangria, wine, mead, kombucha and now cocktails at its West Side taproom, located at 1250 Niagara St.
