WNY Craft Beer Magazine Kicks Off Winter Issue
By Jennie Acklin
What is a launch party? Maybe it’s a good reason to get together with friends for a happy hour and hors d’oeuvres, and a good bit of music to ring in the holidays, too.
WNY Craft Beer magazine of Buffalo, N.Y. is celebrating its third issue and held a Launch Party at Ellicottville Brewing Company on Dec. 13. The magazine featured local brewery EBC on the cover and with a spotlight article.
WNY Craft Beer magazine was founded in 2014 with the mission of spreading the awareness of craft beer in WNY, celebrating local beer culture and promoting the vibrancy of this growing industry.
Matt Kresconko, aka the Buffalo Brewhound, had this to say in his Issue 3 Letter from the Content Manager: “One of the places that loves to see an early snowfall is the village of Ellicottville and the ski resorts that surround it. And that’s the focus of our winter issue. Ellicottville Brewing Company has been serving up pints in the ski country since 1995, and EBC keeps getting better, through both their beer and the overall experience at the brewery.”
The winter magazine content includes articles and advertisements about local breweries, geeky details about home brewing, fermentation, the certified beer server certification program and winter beer reviews. Special features highlight holiday shopping and unique breweries. Check out the publication online at www.wnycraftbeer.com.
