Buffalo and the surrounding areas have so many incredible breweries.  Now, they're offering a pass to visit them all and support Autism awareness.

You've heard of the Niagara Wine Trail and the Finger Lakes Wine Trail...but what is there here for beer drinkers?

The answer is:  a lot.  There are tons of incredible breweries here to try out and now, there's even more incentive to check them all out.  It's called the "WNY Beer Trail" and there is a pass that you can buy that will give you discounts at all of them and help to support Autism awareness at the same time.

According to WIVB, the idea came from a man named Thomas Whitmarsh who was trying to brainstorm a way to help more people discover all that there is in the Buffalo craft beer scene.

“I had wished something would happen in Buffalo along the lines of the Finger Lakes Wine Trail and I said something like a Buffalo beer trail.  That was the ‘aha’ moment.” - WNY Beer Trail creator Thomas Whitmarsh.

This month, if you buy a 2021 WNY Beer Trail Pass for $25 you'll get two, half-price beers at all 38 locations across WNY listed on the trail.  Plus, just for this month, he’s donating a portion of ALL sales to the Autism Nature Trail at Letchworth State Park.  You  can  learn  more  about the  ANT (Autism Nature Trail)  here   www.autismnaturetrail.com
