Looks like Red Robin isn’t the only national restaurant chain pulling out all the stops for a captive craft-drinking audience at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) in September. The Brewers Association announced that Buffalo Wild Wings will create a sports bar and fan experience at the 2018 GABF as a kick off to a national program highlighting small and independent craft brewers.
The 3,600 square foot Buffalo Wild Wings Sports Bar and fan experience will serve a variety of craft beers from small and independent brewers. Beer lovers don’t have to worry about missing any big games that weekend, as—like all good sports bars—the Buffalo Wild Wings pavilion will feature plenty of TV screens. The chain also will celebrate the festival and competition by featuring GABF award-winning beers on tap at its restaurants nationwide. Additionally, wings and craft beer pairings and recipes will be shared on CraftBeer.com—the Brewers Association’s website for beer lovers.
