It’s hard to believe, but we have already reached the midway point of the eighth annual Buffalo Beer Week. After today, there are only five days left to celebrate, so we shouldn’t waste any more time. And bear in mind that today is Tuesday, so its Taco Tuesday across the land. Just another reason to hit your local watering hole and grab a pint of the good stuff. So, with that, let’s move onto today’s events.
Lafayette Brewing Company will celebrate their third annual Oktoberfest, 5-8pm. The event will feature $3.50 pints and the Lafayette brewers will also be on hand, hanging out, answering questions and talking and drinking beer.
