  • Pretty cool place to spend a few hours. On the first floor the pilot batch tasting room sells flights super cheap and the proceeds are donated to charity. They have a little museum of the local Rochester brewing scene before prohibition that is definitely worth checking out. The second floor is their main restaurant area with a large bar. I recommend anything from the pilot brewery. Dean's German style beers are my favorite. If you want some apps their pretzels are pretty good. Crispy outside and nice soft/chewy interior. The mustard is my favorite but my wife is all about the cheese sauce. My favorite part is the rooftop seating, though. There's an awesome view of high falls and the city so if you are hosting friends from out of town it's a great place to grab a pint and take in the view.
  • A must see and do in Rochester. Great food and beverage. Learn all about the history of Beer in upstate NY. It's a museum, Craft beer/ Micro brewery, souvenirs shop, retail beer sales and restaurant overlooking the High Falls in Downtown Rochester! My personal favorite! Check it out! Buy some Cream Ale to take home if ur Man enough!
  • The tasting room and museum are great. You can try all they make (flights are a bargain) plus some experimental brews (the orange honey cream ale was a delightful surprise). The restaurant has wonderful rooftop views.
  • Hopefully this will stay a landmark worthy of forever. Great beer, great food and an extraordinary history. Check out the tasting room, museum and gift shop on the first floor or have a wonderful lunch upstairs with a beautiful view of the High Falls. Definitely worth the time to check it out.
  • Fun place with a nice feel to it. Food is consistently good and there are plenty of options. If the weather is cooperative there's a great view of high falls from the outdoor seating.
