Buffalo Breweries Collaborate To Support Local Restaurants


Beer to Support Revive WNY Restaurants


We’ve teamed up with 42 North Brewing, Hamburg Brewing, Resurgence Brewing, and Try-It Distributing to produce a special four-pack of beer to raise funds for the Western New York restaurant community!

Proceeds from the sale of this beer will be donated to Revive WNY Restaurant, a not-for-profit that was created to support the local restaurant community.


Revive WNY Restaurants

The Western New York restaurant community, like many nationwide, has been hardest hit during the pandemic. In the last three months alone, the Buffalo Niagara region has lost over 6,000 jobs, with the majority being in the restaurant industry.

“Bars & restaurants constitute ‘third spaces’, which are crucial points of social and cultural interaction, and they have been devastated by this pandemic. CBW is grateful for their support over the years and is proud to work with our friends in the brewing industry to help these important third spaces get back on their feet again.” – Ethan Cox, CBW President & Co-Founder


The Revive WNY Restaurants not-for-profit was founded by Buffalo restaurateur, Paul Santora. The not-for-profit’s mission is to provide financial support and marketing resources to local independent restaurants.

“Restaurants are not only important for our local economy, but they are a fabric of our local culture and community. We want to help the restaurant owners that have put their heart and soul into their business.” – Paul Santora


A Truly Collaborative Four Pack

In addition to the contribution of Try-It and the participating breweries, TLF Graphics of Rochester donated the production of the beer labels to support the cause. The beer labels highlight the local restaurant scene and feature prominent restaurant corridors throughout Buffalo.

Each brewery created a distinct style of beer to appeal to every beer drinker’s palate:

  • Community Beer Works – A classic Oatmeal Stout brewed with heaps of oats and layered with roasted and chocolate malts that wrap your mouth in a smooth embrace!
  • 42 North – Hazy IPA Featuring tons of Citra, Cashmere and Chinook Hops with Pale Malt and oats for low bitterness, strong fruit notes, and a nice haziness.
  • Hamburg Brewing Company – Fruited Sour Ale made with strawberry, raspberry and milk sugar.
  • Resurgence Brewing Company – This Amber Lager is a blueberry pancake in a can. The sweetness from blueberries and maple syrup balances the bread and light toasted notes from the lager.

Revive WNY Restaurants four-packs are available for a limited time at Consumer’s Beverage, Tops Friendly Markets, and Wegman’s throughout Western New York.
