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.
