With a plethora of beer varieties populating its three locations, Beers of the World equips brew-loving beerheads with a bevy of bottles. In addition to marketing microbrews in cases (starting at $19.99), 12 packs (starting at $10.99), and six packs (starting at $6.95), Beers of the World encourages imbibers to purchase bottles individually (starting at $1.35), and thereby groove on a greater variety of fermented fizzies. Evaluate imported brews, such as the Hofbrauhaus Wolters German Pilsener ($19.99/case), against Mendocino Black Hawk Stout ($24.79/case), Genesee Cream Ale ($14.49/30-pack), and other American standouts in an awkward thumb-war. As brew buffs for more than two decades, Beers of the World grants expert advice to more-amateur enthusiasts, and information about beer can be found online.

Beyond signature pizzas, the kitchen churns out hot oven-baked subs, plump tacos, and wings with dynamic sauces such as citrus chipotle and sweet red chili. Brando’s also conveniently offers catering services to equip a birthday party with one of its two requirements, the second of which is forbidden from being discussed or even thought about.

For lighter fare, the kitchen churns out goat-cheese salad tossed with green-apple and raspberry-chianti vinaigrette.

At The Winery at Marjim Manor, proprietor Margo Sue Bittner and her family craft quality wines from the bountiful harvests of western New York's Fruit Belt.

The DeMaison family brags that wine flows in their blood, and given the three generations who work side by side at Long Cliff Vineyard & Winery, it would be hard to disprove them. Donald “Grandpa” DeMaison, the mastermind behind Long Cliff Vineyard & Winery, traces his roots back to his great-great-grandfather who worked as a farmer in the Alsace region of France. Don he has spent four decades mastering the art of growing, juggling, and transforming grapes, and has collaborated with his family to produce a venerable list of wines. Their offerings include white and red varietals and range from sweet to dry, such as a sweet Pinot Gris and a dry, mellow Lemberger in French oak.
