It’s time to celebrate the red, white, and brews! 

This Fourth of July, we have an American-themed list of craft beers to pack into your cooler or drink at a craft beer bar in Buffalo.


Our Picks 

‘Murica Emoji

Brewed by 12 Gates Brewing

ABV: 7.4% 

If you could flavor “Stars and Stripes” into an IPA, this would be it! A New England style with citrus flavor and notes of pineapple.


Illumination Pilsner

Brewed by 42 North Brewing

ABV: 5.9% 

This beer lights up our list just like Lady Liberty lights up the New York Harbor. This pilsner is slightly sweet with a spicy, floral hoppiness.  


FC (For Our City) 

Brewed by Big Ditch Brewing

ABV: 4.1%

This “fantastically crushable” summer beer has pineapple and orange flavors and a crisp finish and it  reminds us of our great, American city.   



Brewed by Community Beer Works

ABV: 7.2%

Nothing says independence like an American IPA. This award-winning beer has a well-rounded malt profile and bright citrus, dank pine, juicy peach flavors with a mild bitterness.


Blueberry Wheat

Brewed by Ellicottville Brewing 

4.8% ABV

Cheers to the red, white, and blueberry. This wheat beer has a golden color and a crisp finish.


Loyal to the Grain

Brewed by Froth Brewing 

ABV: 5%

This  clean and crisp pilsner is Loyal to the Grain, just like we’re loyal to the U.S.A.


All America City

Brewed by Flying Bison Brewing 

ABV: 6.5%

Crack open a cold can of American spirit. This IPA is well balanced and made with all American grown ingredients.

Southtown Stout

Brewed by Hamburg Brewing 

ABV: 4.5% 

Our country is made up of small towns that stand together. Just like the Southtowns Toast to them with one of Hamburg Brewing’s newest beers.


Citra Screamer 

Brewed by Pressure Drop Brewing

ABV: 4.9%

Represent the West Coast with a California Golden Cream Ale. This light bodied brew has plenty of citrus, a mild hop presence and a clean finish.  


The Surge

Brewed by Resurgence Brewing

ABV: 6.5%

We gotta rep the East Coast too. This hazy New England IPA has a tropical fruit aroma and delicate citrus flavor.


Live Session 

Brewed by Southern Tier Brewing

ABV: 5.5%

America is famous for its entertainment industry, so we’re celebrating it with this session pale ale. It has fruity notes and a sweet malt backbone. 


New England Style 

Brewed by Blackbird Cider Works

ABV: 9.9%

We live on the East Coast, so we’re going to rep New England twice. This cider is double fermented with a full body and fermented honey notes.
