Noted Architect John Page Visits Bent's

Noted preservationist architect John Page of Bero Architecture visited Bent's yesterday to gather information to create plans for renovating the building's facade. Accompanied by intern architect Christopher Brandt, John made a complete tour of Bent's, calling it a “lovely” building. He singled out the third-floor opera house as a “gem,” and noted that, while his firm is often approached about restoring opera houses throughout the State, Bent's is a rare exception because its extensive millwork is essentially intact.

Both John and the firm's founding architect, John Bero, have previously expressed their enthusiasm for becoming involved in the Bent's renovation. Having been responsible for some of the most significant preservation and rehabilitation projects in Western New York, including Rochester's Central Trust Building and George Eastman, Susan B. Anthony, and Boynton Houses, Bero Architecture is a great fit for Bent's, and its plans for the facade will be a significant step forward in the effort to bring back Bent's.

Community Beer Works Visits Bent's

Ethan Cox and Greg Patterson from Buffalo's Community Beer Works visited Bent's today with an eye toward possibly establishing a satellite microbrewery there. Their operation--which they describe as Buffalo's first nanobrewery--has a quickly growing reputation for quality craft beers, including The IPA, which came in second at the Brewing News' 2013 National IPA Championship.


But Greg and Ethan are about more than just beer, and they're looking to use their operation to help foster a sense of community in towns surrounding Buffalo--one reason why they came to check out Bent's, which not only stands in the center of Medina but could come back as the village's cultural and commercial center too.

They're shown here touring the building with Medina mayor Andrew Meier. (That's Greg at left, Andrew in the middle, and Ethan, right. Apologies for the blurry iPhone shots.) Greg, who's also an architect, was fascinated by Bent's and took photos throughout the tour, while Ethan offered a lot of observations about the building as a potential brewery location. We're hoping to see them back in Medina, with more questions about and ideas for Bent's, sometime soon.
