Buffalo River Works

An oasis within the industrial landscape that once defined the city, Buffalo River Works might best be known as the place with the massive grain elevators painted to resemble a six-pack of beer visible from cruising altitude. But RiverWorks, in a relatively short period of time, has become much, much more . One of Buffalo’s remarkable examples of adaptive reuse, RiverWorks is constructed in the footprint and ruins of the former GLF grain silos, a reminder of Buffalo’s strong industrial heritage. This brewery, restaurant, sports, leisure, adventure and entertainment complex has become a one-of-a-kind destination along Buffalo’s waterfront.

The question isn’t what can you do at Buffalo RiverWorks, it’s what CAN’T you do. If you’re scoping out a breezy place to relax along the Buffalo River, the River Works brewery and beer garden are calling your name. Looking to get on the water? Rent a kayak, stand up paddleboard and hop on the Buffalo CycleBoat or Buffalo Tiki Tour. Seeking heart-pumping adventure? Put your rock climbing skills to the test as you scale the sheer walls of the grain silos. Catch a action-packed roller derby bout, jam out to a concert or enjoy one of the events happening nearly every weekend at RiverWorks. Try the new zip-lining course and soar from above or you can try the high ropes course if that’s more your style.  Open every day, year round. Great for groups and FIT’s.
