Buffalo Brewery Introduces a ‘Pancho Billa Beer’ To Honor His Legacy
It's been over two years since Ezra Castro passed away after a battle with cancer. He was better known as Pancho Billa and was the most famous Buffalo Bills fan. You could always see Ezra cheering on the Bills at Highmark Stadium and his story touched Western New York residents and Bills fans across the country.
Even though Pancho Billa is no longer with us his legacy lives on and one Western New York brewery has teamed up with a local taco restaurant to create a beer that honors the legacy of Ezra Castro.
12 Gates Brewing Company has teamed up with Taquito Lindo Artisanal Tacos to create "Pancho's Legacy Lager."
The Mexican Lager is 4.3 percent ABV and the official launch for the new beer will be at Taquito Lindo on Grand Island Boulevard on Grand Island on September 9th.
A portion of sales from the beer will be donated to Panchopacks, which is a charity that supplies school supplies to children in need.
This is amazing and is a great way to honor Ezra and help out a great cause. 12 Gates is one of the most underrated breweries in Western New York and I can't wait to try this and I'm sure Pancho Billa would be happy that people are celebrating his legacy and helping out children in need.
The official launch of Pancho's Legacy Lager will be three days before the Bills' regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
