Steelbound Brewery & Distillery: “Where Buffalo Meets Ellicottville”

Founder William Bursee first brought his idea of brewing to life in 2015 and has since grew a simple idea into a successful brewery & distillery with some of the best Buffalo cuisine. His main goal of “crafting a sense of home, and making our friends feel comfortable in that environment” has led to what is known as Steelbound Brewery & Distillery. They have created some of the most unique craft beer and spirits, and menu that represents the true tastes of Buffalo.

Our Discover716 team had the pleasure of experiencing a tasting table hosted by Steelbound Brewery & Distillery at their Springville location. We were able to experience the atmosphere, food, drinks, and staff which were all amazing. If you’re looking for a new place to grab lunch or dinner, then keep reading!

First starting with their craft beer, Steelbound has quite the variety in their lineup. To see the full list, view their line up on their website. Just to mention a few of their most popular, a must try is the Red, White, & Blueberry Wheat Ale which has fruit flavors of raspberry, coconut, and blueberry. This is the perfect beer to enjoy for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend to wrap up the end of summer. Another popular choice is the Sponge Bomb which is a New England style IPA made with lactose with hints of pineapple. If you’re ready for fall their Seasonal Wheat Apple Cranberry Cinnamon, which just hit taprooms at both locations!

Steelbound recently was awarded bronze & silver status in the Great American International Spirits Competition. The distillers at Steelbound have crafted some of the best spirits, here are the three you must try. First is their Premium Vodka White Tail which won silver in the competition for its smooth taste. Second is their Steelbound Reposado which won bronze for its hint of smokiness & subtle sweet white peppery finish. Third, their Premium Gin Genever, a unique twist on the old world Dutch genever which also took home a bronze metal. There are plenty more to taste, visit their website for a full lineup of their bottled spirits.

While tasting all their craft beers, and spirits make sure to order some food to get the full experience! Their menu includes starters such as Buffalo Chips, and Fried Cheese Curds which are Buffalo food staples. Follow up with an entrée such as a Beef on Weck Sandwich, Steelbound Burger, or Beer Can Chicken. Bringing the whole family for dinner? No worries there are options for the kids as well.
