Southern Tier One Buffalo joins the brewery’s lineup, a partnership with Pegula Sports and Entertainment (PSE).
PSE is the sports management company behind teams like the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres. Southern Tier One Buffalo beer is meant to connected the Buffalo community, and “unite as one”. Presumably under the same team and city flag. For those Buffalo proud of course.
“It’s always exciting to launch new beer.” said Phin DeMink, founder of STBC. “We collaborated with PSE to develop an exceptional craft beer. It’s designed to appeal to all types of beer drinkers, in particular Buffalonians. I’m extremely proud of this product and proud to make Buffalo its home. It’s our beer, it’s what we drink around here.”
Southern Tier One Buffalo will tap the first keg at (716) Food and Sport in downtown Buffalo. Bills and Sabres President Russ Brandon will tap the first keg. One Buffalo will be on tap at Ralph Wilson Stadium starting with the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers tonight.
Starting August 31st, Southern Tier One Buffalo will be available in kegs throughout Western New York and six-pack bottles will follow in September.

Southern Tier Brewing (Lakewood, NY) kicks off 2015 with the release of 2X Presso. The base beer is an milk stout, brewed with coffee and lemon peels.
Espresso is a drink that is not for the faint of heart. Pulling a perfect shot is as much a science as it is an art form. Come to think of it, the same can be said for brewing beer. Of course, both coffee and beer have certain, shall we say ‘uplifting’ qualities. Combine the two is a natural progression.
Southern Tier 2X Presso is a winter seasonal in 12oz bottles.

Southern Tier Right-O-Way IPA is a low ABV IPA joining the brewery’s year round line up in early 2015.
Right-O-Way IPA is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with citrusy hops and floral aromas. These flavors, with the addition of lightly kilned malts and moderate hop bitterness, make Right-O-Way a refreshing and easy drinking beer. The sessionable 4.6% abv makes this one of the “easier” beers we’ve ever made. Enjoy it in your favorite glass or straight out of the bottle. Either way, make it Right-O-Way.
Southern Tier Right-O-Way IPA will be available in 12oz bottles and draft next year.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Year round.

Southern Tier Brewing (Lakewood, NY) will add another offering to their Belgian Series next month – Tripel Cafe.
As the name suggests, the beer is a Belgian-style tripel, with coffee. True, but with a twist. Tripel Cafe has green coffee beans. Green coffee beans are unroasted, or immature beans. Orange peel is added to the brew for a flavor boost.
A juicy orange. A green coffee bean. There once was a time when both were considered exotic delights, carried from far reaching corners of the globe. Within this bottle is your opportunity to rediscover these ingredients in an uncommon form, that of a Belgian Style Ale. Enjoy Tripel Cafe with appetizers, or alongside a meal enjoyed with your friends when they happen to swing by.
The brewery describes Tangier as a “session india pale ale” brewed with tangerine peels. Available in 12oz bottles and draft.
