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

This is my second time at Roc Brewery and I have to say that it was again, a great experience! The owners are awesome and make you feel at home the minute you walk in. As busy as they were they still had time for conversation while educating us on the new beers they had on tap. I have to... More

We just returned from Rochester N.Y. where we had the pleasure of visiting Roc Brewery. Coming from Portland Maine we have many breweries that produce good to very good beer but nothing compares with our experience at Roc Brewery. The beers we sampled were tasty,fresh and offered in a wide variety. It is a friendly place and we enjoyed meeting... More
