Bar not serving Canadian beer during game

Amherst Ale House


AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) – A local bar and restaurant is heating up the battle between Team USA and Team Canada in the Olypmic Winter Games Friday afternoon. The Amherst Ale House tweeted, saying it won’t be serving any Canadian beers during Friday’s men’s hockey semi-final game.  The bar says, “This is a patriotic matter, thanks for your understanding.”

Local bars and the Seneca Niagara Casino are expecting the game to draw big crowds during the game which will be televised live from Sochi at Noon Friday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
