If you love craft brews and/or home-brewing, a visit to ROC Brewing is a MUST! We stopped in on a Friday evening at 5 p.m., and had no problem finding a seat at the bar! We enjoyed three beers they were offering, including Whoopass (Imperial/double IPA,) Moo 2 (Stout), and Ugly Sweater (English Pale Ale)...nice variety available. The staff was... More

Roc Brewing is the best local brewery in Rochester. They are always changing up their craft beers and they have a knack for the spectrum of pallets that exist. Try a flight and you'll be hooked.

Roc Brewing Co is very straight forward brewery. There really isn't much to see here. Simply enter and you're practically at the bar. What makes Roc Brewing special is some of the most amazing beer produced in the Rochester area. My personal favorite brew is the Brassy Pants, an amazing Belgian strong ale. Also of note is the Mocha Porter... More

Very nice place and a very nice staff. Overall, their beers were just average. Nothing I tasted jumped out at me at all. The chips and salsa with guacamole and sour cream were way below average. Visit to drink and talk, not to eat. Probably won't visit again.

Great place to go to find out about the local places in Rochester. We met Chris, the owner, and he told us about some great local places to eat. Very friendly guy. Sampled the beer and enjoyed the "family named" ale the best. Chris was very informative about the brewery and the different beers they brew. Their slogan "Enter a... More

This brewery had only 8 beers on tap and most were pale ales. It was considerably smaller than I had anticipated with only a handful of tables. It did have a selection of board games that patrons could play. Wait staff was prompt and courteous. I would not put it on my list of must see places in Rochester, however.

I went last night for my friend going away party. I drove by the place one time as the sign is pretty small the first time around. The food selection was pretty limited when I was hoping for some food to eat. My friends did enjoy the tater tots waffles but still limited food. Good thing I eat before. The... More

We did a tasting flight of beers, all or which were good - some very good. The owner was there and told us about the beers and more. The atmosphere was very friendly. They were in the process of getting new brewing equipment installed, so we couldn't do a tour, but normally they have them. Check ahead of time. Nice... More
