Labatt to open first U.S. brewery in Buffalo

Labatt may be an iconic Canadian brand of beer, but south of the border Americans love their Blue too.

The beer maker is hoping to cash in on the love of suds, by opening its first U-S based brewery in Buffalo.

The Labatt USA Test Brewery is being built in the city's downtown Cobblestone District in partnership with Pegula Enterprises.

It will also feature a beer garden, public tasting room and restaurant.
