A Bitter Sweet Collaboration

Posted on July 20, 2015 by Michael Tripi

Last winter we made the decision to step out of our not so serious comfort zone and partner up with 26shirts to help raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is a life-threatening genetic disease that causes the body to produce thick, sticky mucus that makes it extremely difficult for the affected person to breathe. This disease affects nearly 70,000 people worldwide, most of which are children.

Admittedly, this is an unusual pairing for a fictitious beer mug company. This disease however, has greatly impacted our little BBM family and we can’t help but feel that we have a responsibility to do our part in raising awareness and contributing to find a cure.

Last January, we decided that our 26shirts design would celebrate one of our favorite moments in Buffalo sports history, Fandemonium. This phrase made legendary by Van Miller suddenly seems to be relevant again with our city reenergized, and our football franchise’s future looking bright.

 It’s with great sadness that our tribute to Van is finally unveiled only after his passing. His talent and legacy are certainly much greater than a blue cotton t-shirt. Although we never had the opportunity to meet Van personally, we hope that he would have enjoyed helping us promote this important cause and that Buffalo football fans will have the chance to tear down those goalposts again soon.

Posted on October 08, 2014 by Michael Tripi

 

Today we’re very excited to announce the official launch of BuffaloBeerMug.com. We’ve had a very busy summer (and fall) leading up to this very point. Many nights, weekends and beers had to be sacrificed in order to make this moment possible.

Thank you to Dan Gigante, Michael Ham, Cathy Piciulo, William Kelley, Rosemary Tripi and Erin Tripi for all of your hard work. It has been, and will continue to be greatly appreciated.

To our fellow Buffalonians, Western New Yorkers and Buffalo transplants throughout the country, we look forward to providing you with products as great as our hometown. Please be sure to check this space for the latest news, special offers and ridiculous videos.

Cheers.
