Over the weekend my friends and I decided that we go to Resurgence entirely too much, only once in a while we'll throw in a Rusty Nickle Brewing Co. night. So we decided to go on a brewery tour on Saturday and I wish I made this list the night before because we missed a few. The list is only getting longer and longer as they brewery-hype goes on!

So, next time you do a brewery tour of Western New York, here you go.

    If you are trying to hit up all of the breweries, I have no clue where you toss this one in--it's a hike if you're from the southtowns, but totally worth the drive. Everything is themed as Grand Central Station in New York City. Very cool place.
