Makes a Great Gift!

Gene McCarthy’s has served the Old First Ward since 1963


Under the ownership of a team of local craft beer enthusiasts, the long time bar now features a brewery next door, which provides locally brewed beer to its customers.

In addition to OFW draughts, Gene McCarthy’s Brewery & Kitchen continues to feature New York State brewed beers, bringing its excellent collection of ales and lagers closer to home.

The new owners have also succeeded in showcasing a stellar pub menu, using creative flavors to serve traditional Buffalo fare.

Bicycle and outdoor seating friendly, the brewpub welcomes all lovers of locally crafted beer and food, partaken in an atmosphere that celebrates the Old First Ward’s history, and its continued cultural milieu. Enjoy a pint outside in the historic Old First Ward.
