First Line Brewing, located at 4906 S. Buffalo St. in Orchard Park, will hold their official grand opening on August 22 (12-10pm) and August 23 (12-9pm).

Seating is first come, first serve due to current COVID-19 regulations and masks are required for entry. The brewery will offer limited bar seating and inside and outside tables as well. They will also have food.

They are announcing their launch beers on Facebook each day leading up to their grand opening and have announced Sergeant Hops New England IPA, their house NEIPA, which is full of juicy aroma hops, and Alpha Bravo Citrus IPA, which is loaded with Citra hops, lemon and orange peels, thus far.

The brewery’s mantra is “crafting high quality specialty brews that honor America’s Heroes.”

First Line also says that they have partnered with numerous charities to give back to “the real American Heroes” and that every month they will brew a different designated charity beer and donate a portion of proceeds to the cause.

Stay tuned to for more details.
