This is the… third event I’ve visited at Brewed & Bottled in Lewiston NY. Being just up the road from me and owned by a passionate and beer-loving couple (Chris and Jessica Budde) who also happen to be my friends help. But, living out here hasn’t been the best for beer until the last year or so. Events seem to skip this area altogether, assuming that people in Niagara Falls, Lewiston, and beyond want to drive to Buffalo for tap-takeovers and events.
This is why I love Brewed & Bottled so much. Chris and Jess are able to bring in events and tap takeovers that we crave.
The Thin Man Brewing tap takeover is just one of those events.
The tap list was awesome — all 6 taps were Thin Man brews and I was able to try beers that people have been telling me to try since Thin Man opened.
All I can say is that this year, I am thankful for Brewed and Bottled.
Three taps? How about six taps? We’re super stoked to let the cat out of the bag. Poor cat. Wednesday, Nov 23 we will be tapping 6 Thin Man Brewery kegs. This is real life. Thanks to Thin Man for making this possible! Get over and drink up these beers from Buffalo NY’s newest brewery! Bring your growlers for Thanksgiving! #SharingIsCaring
