Our Local Craft Ales

Buffalocal’s mission is to ensure that consumers are getting the freshest local beers—and Buffalo’s local breweries strive to provide every type of ale possible to the community.

Ales ferment at warmer temperatures, and because of this, they often present more yeast-derived flavors. Usually when you see the term "ale," you can anticipate that yeast flavors provide some, if not much, of the flavor you will experience. Fuller-bodied with nuances of fruit or spice and a pleasantly hoppy finish, generally robust and complex with a variety of fruit and malt aromas, ales come in many varieties:
  • Blonde ales are very pale in colour and tend to be clear, crisp, and dry, with low-to-medium bitterness and aroma from hops and some sweetness from malt.
  • Golden ales are straw coloured with a slight hint of citrus and vanilla.
