I'll be flying into Buffalo, NY next week and driving down to the Chautauqua area for afew days.

Any do not miss, easy to find beer spots I should try to get to?

I've checked Pubcrawler but would like other opinions. Thanks.

Slainte, George P.

PS- How's that Amish beer? ;-)

George, I'm now living 65 miles from Buffalo, across the border in Canada. I confess I haven't been into any of the brewpubs down there, despite having flown out of the airport a couple of times, as well as spending a college summer there many years ago. Those here who have been to the beer spots tell me that Pearl Street is all right and Buffalo Brewing is average. There is a classic old tavern named Ulrich's that has good atmosphere (even did when I was there 34 years ago) and a selection of micros.

There are two Buffalo contributions to American cuisine: hot wings, which originated at a still existing place called the Anchor Bar but have been copied almost everywhere, and the "beef on (kemmel)weck," a roast beef sandwich on a German caraway seed hard roll. My preference is for the latter, which is a true Buffalo original.

Ditto on the beef on kemmelweck recommendation. With one of those, slathered in hot horseradish, you won't care what beer your drinking with it (FWIW, I would recommend a Genny Cream Ale).

George,
It's been a while since I've been to Buffalo but there are a couple of places that you should hit for the best wings you'll ever have. The Buffalo House and, as Bill mentions, the Anchor bar. I believe the Anchor Bar has a little better beer selection.

Go for the Suicide!!

You haven't had Buffalo Wings until you've had Anchor Bar Suicide wings. Go Bills!!!
