Bourbon Wings and Beer No Longer Taking Over Old Buffalo Wings and Beer Spot in Cloverly

In an update from early this past summer, Bourbon, Wings, and Beer (from the owners of Dominic’s Italian Grille in Colesville) told us they hoped to open by the end of August.  B.W.B. LLC had a hearing with Montgomery County’s Alcohol Beverage Services (ABS) on May 19th at 10am where it was granted its “Class B Beer, Wine, and Liquor License, On Sale Only.” and renovations were ongoing. Recently, signage was removed and ‘for lease’ signs were put up on the restaurant. Today we received confirmation that the new restaurant will not be opening.

Back in January, we let you know that Buffalo Wings and Beer had closed in the Cloverly Village Center (15412 New Hamphire Ave). In February we let you know that the plan was for the restaurant to once again open, after being taken over by the owners of Dominic’s Italian Grille in Colesville. The BWB name was to remain with the acronym having a slightly different meaning as the restaurant was to be named Bourbon, Wings, and Beer. A reason why plans fell through was not provided.

About the previous restaurant, Buffalo Wings and Beer: It was founded and created in 1995 by the late Ira Levy, a Silver Spring native who was able to grow the local chain to 10 restaurants across the DMV at one point. The first restaurant opened in Gaithersburg after Levy saw a restaurant go out of business on Snouffer School Road, near the old Gentleman Jim’s location. The eventual expansion included locations in Cloverly, Baltimore, Eldersburg, Frederick, Germantown, Glen Burnie, Hagerstown, and Leesburg, VA among others, even becoming a sponsor of the Washington Football Team for a few years. A highlight for the local restaurant chain was winning the National Buffalo Wing Festival that is held every year in Buffalo, NY. Buffalo Wings and Beer was first selected to compete in 2008, earned a 2nd place finish in 2009, and won the competition of over 185 restaurants in 2010. The Cloverly location was the last remaining of the restaurants.
