Gene McCarthy’s has served the Old First Ward since 1963.
Now under the ownership of a team of local craft beer enthusiasts, the long time bar will soon feature a brewery next door, which will provide locally brewed beer to its customers.
In addition, Gene McCarthy’s Brewing & Kitchen will continue to feature New York State brewed beers, bringing its excellent collection of ales and lagers closer to home.
In one short year, 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.

The construction is complete, the mechanicals are in place, the Feds gave us their approval, and now we wait for NYS to say we can go ahead. We hope to be brewing by the end of the year!
