The historic Buffalo Bill's Brewery is closed. This real estate along with its FF&E are for sale. Founded by Bill Owens in 1983, Buffalo Bill's is the oldest brewpub in America and in 2018, was inducted into the Smithsonian National Museum of American History as the most historic brewpub in America. Rarely does an opportunity to own such an important part of craft beer history come available. The brewpub closed in May as the current owner Geoff Harries, after owning BBB for 28 years, was ready for new adventures. Buffalo Bill's is the heart of the local community and much of this sentiment can be garnered from its social media pages on Facebook and Instagram. The property was renovated in 2001 with upgraded electrical panel and gas service, new electrical throughout, all new sewer and plumbing, and seismic retrofit. The entire exterior façade is trimmed in white oak, which complements the huge Nana Wall system which opens the entire front of the brewpub onto the front 500 square foot patio and seasonal street parties. There's also an additional 1,000 sq ft covered patio, which is used for patio dining and banquets. The space is used year round with rollup seasonal screens and radiant heat system. The brewpub is truly turnkey and consists of a 10bbl brewery, 3 conical 10bbl fermenters, 1 conical 20bbl fermenter, 4 10bbl serving tanks, and 2 20bbl serving tanks. Prior to covid the brewpub was generating $4.5m annually with 750 customers/day. The property is 4,300 sq ft, plus the outdoor patio spaces. The real estate has recently appraised at $3,000,000, and the FF&E is valued at $400,000. This property is located in the Economic Development Opportunity Zone and will qualify for capital gains forgiveness. It may also qualify for Economic Development Assistance as well.
