There is always a great selections of homemade brews with better than average food. But the best thing , is the best view of the Upper Falls in Rochester ! You really should sit outside , when the weather permits !

Classic restored building on the Genesee property. Taproom with flights, crowlers and growlers of never released brews. A great gift shop with a small museum and awesome merch. The food at the restaurant was delicious and diverse. If the weather permits sit outside.

We loved reading the history of the company and the tasting room in the back. The food was great. The food prices were reasonable and the parking lot was well lit.
