CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Big Ditch Brewing Company is expanding into the northtowns with the announcement of a second facility.

On Thursday, Big Ditch Brewing announced it is working with Iskalo Development to create a new, world-class brewery and tap room. The planned site in Cheektowaga is located on Transit Road adjacent to the north side the I-90. According to company leaders, the existing downtown Buffalo brewery and tap room will remain up and running after completion of the new facility.

The new facility will feature dining areas on both floors. The tap room and beer hall areas will be located on the first floor with a private dining room and retail store. The second floor will house additional tap room seating, the Brewer's Lounge, three additional private dining/meeting rooms and a private event venue.

"The planning for this new facility has been extremely exciting and is a big step for our company," said Matt Kahn, president and co-founder of Big Ditch Brewing Company. “Demand for our beer continues to grow and more opportunities exist for expanded sales and distribution. That’s why this site expansion is so timely and necessary, as it will allow us to really ramp-up production.”
