My beer-loving girlfriend and I will be in Buffalo for a weekend, and I want to take her out. Where to for beer?

I don't drink beer, but my girlfriend is a beer lover, and I want to take her out someplace that will make her happy. She likes to try new things and local brews. She likes brown ales, Scottish ales, pale ales, and some lagers. She especially loves oatmeal stout, but does not like Belgian ales, IPAs, or other very hoppy beers. She is from Western Massachusetts, so beers she can't get at home would be especially interesting.
So, where should I take her in Buffalo for a couple of hours of beer drinking and greasy bar food, and what specific beers might she particularly want to try? Her favorite bar at home is a local hole-in-the-wall with a hippy vibe, but I don't know that she cares about atmosphere so much as beer. Bonus if it's a quiet enough place to carry on a conversation.
