Second Saturday Lecture Series: Beef and Ale


The 125th Anniversary Committee for the Broadway Market District is presenting the 11th installment of the “Second Saturday of the Month” Lecture Series on November 9that noon at the Broadway Market Community Room.

The speaker will be Peter Jablonski, a well-known beer historian and enthusiast, who will speak on the brewing and meat-packing industry history on the East Side of Buffalo.

If you still want to learn more historical facts about the brewing and meat-packing industry history in Buffalo, a Bus Tour will follow immediately after the lecture. The bus tour will depart from the adjacent parking lot on Broadway Street at 1:15pm and return at approximately 5:15pm.  For a mere $40.00, you will be provided with 4 hours of fun and interesting facts, as well as exploring several former and existing breweries, visiting the site of the slaughterhouses (central to the meat-packing industry), as well as several unexpected ventures.

Additionally, light fares will be served on the bus (pretzels, peanuts and beef jerky) and the final stop will serve beef on-weck/tap beer before we return to the Broadway Market.  The bus tour is limited to 44 people and payment and reservations are required by November 3rd.

The last tour was sold out, so please get your reservations in quickly with a check for $40.00 made out to B.E.S.T.. Checks can be sent to the Broadway Market, 999 Broadway, Buffalo 14212. For additional information contact either Peter at 440-7895 or Sophie at 479-1382.
