Drink local. That's the message from Community Beer Works. The Buffalo brewery has taken aim at Anheuser Busch by encouraging drinkers from Western New York to turn in products from the international beer giant at an upcoming beer buyback.

"We don't care where the Anheuser Busch product came from or how you acquired it. You don't have to pretend someone left it in your fridge after a party. We just want it off our streets," said CBW Chief Operating Officer Chris Smith in a tongue in cheek news release.

As part of the promotion people are invited to drop off unopened cans and bottles of Anheuser Busch products to Community Beer Works this Saturday May 21st  from 12-8pm. Participants will receive $1 per beer donated, with a maximum of $2 per person, that will be taken off the price of a glass of beer at Community Beer Works at 15 Lafayette Avenue.

"People want beer. We understand that. We just want you to make good choices when you're drinking it," said Smith.
