Buffalo is known as a beer city and you will have another brewery to have a pint in coming up later this Summer.

WGRZ reported that Carousel Development Inc. submitted a plan to open a brewery in the Lovejoy District.

the project calls for converting an existing building on a one-acre site into a beer production and tasting room. The 3,300-square-foot brewery is part of a larger multiparcel redevelopment that also includes retail space for takeout sales. The lower floor previously housed a Blue Wireless cellphone store

The location of the proposed brewery is at 1223 Lovejoy St. near North Ogden. The site was originally home to the Hopf Star Theater that was built back in 1914.

The brewery will also feature a cobblestone beer garden in the back of the building that will offer customers a chance to sit outside on the concrete stamped patio while having plenty of windows that look back into the brewery.
