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

Nice stop with some cool art. The beer was good. Several were very hoppy. I really tip my hat to the brewers as they tried something different. Jalapeno Beer, I didn't care for it but it was different from all the other stops we made during out tour. The bar tender was outstanding and helped with knowing what was in... More

Tried many varieties and was impressed by more than half. Anything with hoppy flavors were impeccable and highly enjoyed the stout. The people behind the bar were extremely friendly as well. We visited three breweries in one might and was most impressed by this one-and I'm a bit of a beer snob... I wish this place luck and will be... More

While the beer didn't blow me away, the selections were creative and good tasting. The main thing I took from this place was that the bartenders didn't make you feel like they were doing you a favor just by serving you. They took time to explain the beers and did it with a smile. Spent a while playing shuffle board... More

This little brewery in the East End keeps it simple and sticks to the beer. The front of the brewery is a giant window, which provides lots of sunlight (when available for the maker of sunlight) for the small tasting room and a nice view of the downtown. The offer a good range of beers and switch it up from... More

This brewery is a great place to have a beer and hopefully is the sign of a happy future for beer in the Rochester. They brew up a variety of different types of beer and while nothing stood out for me, I felt all the beers held there own and were well crafted. The drinking area is small, but provides... More
