Fredonia’s first brewery

No, it doesn’t exist, but it could.

Yesterday my friend took me to The Barrel Factory in Buffalo’s Old First Ward. A family took an old barrel factory (literally) and transformed it into a combination brewery, restaurant, and distillery. They created something out of nothing.

It’s this sort of initiative that has drawn people to Buffalo over the last five years. People want to go to happening places, but are generally too scared to do the happening themselves.

There are enormous rewards for going first. As my hero Seth Godin says, merely begin.
