Flying Bison, S.B. Reeves Outfit collaborate on Monster Bash

When last November’s Eat Like a Monster event inside Flying Bison Brewing Company was a roaring success for S.B. Reeves Outfit—roughly 150 people attended—there was no doubt that Reeves would return for another Buffalo gig.
From 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday at Flying Bison Brewing Company, 491 Ontario St., Buffalo, S.B. Reeves Outfit and Flying Bison will host the Outdoor Monster Bash featuring Flying Bison brews like Buffalo Kolsch 716, Rusty Chain and even orange-creme soda, a live performance by Reeves after opener Sara Elizabeth and service from food trucks the Roaming Buffalo and the Whole Hog.
Lancaster’s A & K Buffalo Custom Cornhole Boards has generously donated four boards for the event, and KanJam and ladder ball will also be at the disposal of attendees.
Tickets run for $10 if picked up from Flying Bison Brewing Company during retail hours—11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday—or $15 on-site on Saturday.
Admission comes with two free drink tickets as well, which certainly heightens the appeal. (If you call the brewery at 716-873-1557, you may also be able to pinpoint a non-retail time to purchase tickets, event organizer Parrish Gibbons said in a phone call).
Gibbons continued by noting that Flying Bison has secured a liquor license for the event, meaning that the local brewing company can vend full-size beers at the Outdoor Monster Bash instead of the two oz. samples they’ve been restricted to within the brewery itself.
Reeves, who tours infrequently, volunteers at the Starlight Studio and Art Gallery, 340 Delaware Ave., Buffalo, and furthers his musical vision through a merchandise line: Monsters for Peace on Earth. The musician will have merchandise available at the party, including the catchy t-shirt seen to the right.
Here’s his mission—boiled down—according to his website:
“We don’t harbor any illusions about transforming the world overnight, but we believe we can influence behavior amongst each other, and that over time that will move us all in the right direction.”
