Flying Bison Buffalo Kolsch 716
Host city: Buffalo, N.Y.
Another losing Bills season and millions of tax dollars going toward stadium upgrades? Another Sabres fire sale and rebuilding year? More than 10 feet of snow this winter alone?
Yeah, we'd say Buffalo's ready for spring.
The first standalone production brewery to operate in Buffalo since the 1970s, Flying Bison knows how to comfort its hometown after a long, heartbreaking season. Sticking to a solid core of traditional German and Czech styles while branching out into the occasional strong ale or IPA, Flying Bison welcomes the spring with a light, refreshing Kolsch that's eminently drinkable at 5.4% ABV.
It's an easy drinking style that isn't as heavy as winter and spring bocks and is slightly more complex than a standard pilsner. It's a familiar comfort that signals better days ahead. It's as good with a plate of wings as it is with some beef on weck. Cheer up, Buffalo: It only gets better from here.
