Our Award-Winning Beer Will Soon Be Available Across New York State—and Beyond!


Find award-winning CBW beer throughout New York State!

In partnership with Remarkable Liquids (Albany, NY), we’re excited to announce the expansion of our distribution network throughout New York State and portions of New Jersey!  

Forming in 2010 and opening in April 2012 on Buffalo’s West Side, we hustled to quickly became a centerpoint of beer culture in WNY by producing high quality, small batch, award-winning beer. As with any growing business, the need to expand was imminent and in 2016 we began the groundbreaking for a new location which opened in the summer of 2018. Included in the project were a new 6,000 barrel production facility, taproom and event space located at 520 7th Street, just down the road from our original space.

“Our business was born in a garage on the west side of Buffalo with a dream to share amazing beer with our friends and neighbors. That spirit still motivates us every day and we’re excited to share it with new friends.” – Christopher Smith, co-founder of Community Beer Works

We’re proud of our reputation for producing both classic and innovative beer styles which have earned multiple medals at international, national and regional beer competitions.

“When we began as homebrewers in our garage, we never dreamed that our beer would win a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival or earn a medal at the World Beer Cup. Now we’re excited to share our beer with people across New York State and New Jersey, it’s really a dream come true.” – Ethan Cox, Co-Founder of Community Beer Works

Let’s Go Pils, That IPA and The Whale Brown Ale will soon be popping up in restaurants, stores and pubs throughout Rochester, Syracuse and Albany to start, with more variety and locations not far behind!
