Buffalo Beer Week Day 3: Sunday Funday

smokershaven_bbwad_2016Things are a bit pared down for Day 3 of Buffalo Beer Week, which also happens to be a Sunday. But, don’t fear, because there are still some fun things to do today.

You can catch the Buffalo Bills game against the Arizona Cardinals at a few locations, either at 42 North’s Kegs & Eggs Bills Brunch, 11:30am-2pm, which features a special brunch menu. There is also a Bills Buffet at Gordon Biersch, 1pm-5pm. The event is $20 per person and includes 2 beers, food & jersey, raffle tickets.

Though cigars have long been associated with whiskey, they pair with craft beer just as well. You can find out for yourself at an exclusive cigar and beer pairing event, 1pm-5pm, at Hamburg Brewing. The event will feature Hamburg beers expertly paired with Arturo Fuente cigars by Smoker’s Haven of West Seneca. The event will benefit Operation: Cigars for Warriors Foundation, a charitable organization that provides premium cigars to active duty U.S. military members serving overseas.

The German American Musicians will perform at 3pm for the event, which features NYBP Oktoberfest beer, bratwurst, huge bavarian pretzels, beer floats, games of beer skill and German beer songs.

Sour Power returns to Pizza Plant’s Transit location, which this year features Brasserie Cantillon Fou Foune, Mikkeller Spontancarrot, Cascade Brewing Noyaux, Victory Beer Sour Monkey and Firestone Walker  Bretta Rose. The beer flows at 5pm.
