Sato Brewpub - The Brewery

Before

After

We like to think of our little brewery as a "ship in a bottle." Squeezed into the underground basement of the Dun Building, Buffalo's first skyscraper, we have set up a 1.5 barrel Stout manufactured all electric HERMS brewhouse. We have 3, 3barrel uni-tanks and a 4.25 barrel jacketed aseptic tank. The aseptic tank will be versatile in brewing many styles of unique beers. From lagers to fruit beers.Our brew staff will be working closely with the kitchen to produce a truly delicious and complimenty element to our food menu. Along with our brewer's dinners we will be crafting an uncanny experience in the realm of beer and food.

When our brewery first started we didn't even have a roof! Our ceiling is under the sidewalk on W. Swan St. and for insulation purposes they needed to take up the cement and put down a new sidewalk. We managed to fit all of the equipment and tanks in afterwards in the back door, only having to take the door off the hinges for the kegerator.

Come see why the smallest breweries pack the biggest punches!

The Brewers

Head Brewer - Evan Flury

A native Buffalonian, Evan Flury began working in the beer industry 4 years ago, in New Jersey. Shortly after, he returned home and has held positions in both the local brewing and distilling industries. His production experience began through hands-on training under Dave Collins (formerly of Resurgence Brewing) and progressed into a seat at the selective Niagara Food and Wine Institute's program for Brewmaster and Brewing Operations, under the direction of Brewmaster Jon Downing. He looks forward to developing modern and classic styles as well as creative uses of Japanese ingredients.

Brewer - Josh Supry

After growing up in a small town in New Hampshire, Josh moved to Rochester
to study at RIT.  Josh currently manages a small IT support company as his
full time job.  Josh spends his time working on cars and riding his
motorcycle.  To unwind, Josh works with his vegetable and hop gardens, and
goes camping when he can.  When he got engaged to his wife in 2005, he
moved to Buffalo, where he met Jon.  Josh started homebrewing in 2010, then
Jon joined two years later.  Since then they have been brewing almost every
weekend and have received Gold, silver, and bronze medals for their beers.
