Hey WNY – Your Craft Beer is Near!

WNY Craft Beer LogoWestern New York…Your Craft Beer is Near!

Recently, the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise (BNE) provided us with one of the most valuable pieces of information possible…the WNY Craft Beer Breweries, Distilleries, and Suppliers Map.  Just in time for summer  and a perfect reason to dust off all those growlers that have been collected over the long, cold winter. Thanks!

We took our love for beer and all things distilled to the next level.  We created an interactive, geo-located map of the same awesome locations that can be viewed on mobile or tablet. What’s best is that you can see what’s around you, but then you can also view their respective websites, connect via phone or email, and get directions!  What can be better?

Here’s how it works: Download the junaio app from either app store. Search for WNY Craft Beer, and press to load the channel.  Once it’s loaded, you’l be able to see the same locations that are featured on the BNE map.

We created a set of black and white icons to help users recognize breweries from distilleries from suppliers. The white icons indicate a location that is open for business; the black icons indicate a location that is currently under construction. We hope to making some changes to this in the very new future since we know some locations are due to open in the next few weeks! Please let us know when it’s time to make the update.

Categorical Filters


If you’re looking specifically for one type of resource, simply use the filter at the bottom. Choose from Brewery-Open, Brewery-Under Construction, Distillery-Open, Distillery-Under Construction, or Supplier. Remember to let us know as updates occur, or even as new locations open.

For the Bird’s Eye view of all locations, you can activate the Map View. This will give you a scrollable list of all locations with direct access to information. Zoom into the map to see what’s near you from above.

If you are viewing this on a mobile device, you can press here to have it load junaio and the channel automatically. If you have an event coming up that would benefit from an interactive experience like this, please don’t hesitate to give us a shout. We’d love to help…especially if there’s more beer involved. Cheers!
