  • Came here to sample some local beer. The facility itself was all, but pleasant. They had board games and a nice seating area. The bar was rather small and the selection of beers was perhaps a dozen (b...  read more »

  • We stayed at the Radisson and walked up to Roc brewing around 5 on a Saturday. We were worried it was going to be busy, but when we walked in, hardly anyone was here. We got a seat at the bar which wa...  read more »
  • Found out this nice nano whilst having their Sasspant at The Beer Market. 4 or 6 flights. Boggle y backgammon games available uk belg y US styles on tap. While they may have lost their suit against Tbe Badass empire. This Kickass is one of the best DIPA's I've had in 20 years. On par with DF90 IMHO Kewl mug club y swanky brady bunch era furniture cool vibe
  • My first time at Roc Brewery: Pros: 1) I loved the Patty's Belgian beer. I drank it all night. 2) Limited but pleasant outdoor seating. Will be great when the inner-loop construction is done. 3) Nice atmosphere and design of their logo and bar area (woodwork). 4) It's cool to see a bit of the brewery itself "behind the scenes." Cons 1) I ordered the Chicken Tot Waffles. First, the price on the website is $7, but it was $8 in house. Second, what is a Tot waffle? Why would you make a thing that is already shareable finger food into an awkward thing that you need silverware for? Third, I hadn't had dinner so I ordered the thing that looked most like a meal, and it was a disappointment. It also took over 20 minutes to come (no one else was ordering food), and was served on a paper plate with plastic silverware. I get that you don't go to a brewery for food, but you can't just drink beer all night—you need something good to KEEP you there, right? Maybe the rest of the food is better? It looks reasonably priced on the website, if those prices are current. 2) The tipping system is presumptuous. You are given options for 18%, 20%, or a "Custom" tip. I understand that wait staff rely on tips to survive, and that these options potentially simplify matters for customers, but what did they do to earn such a high tip? I would argue that the staff there aren't really "waiting" on anyone. There's no table service, which means they didn't bring you a drink, and they didn't pour a drink that took any training. Furthermore, the staff wasn't particularly friendly or attentive. I chose a 10% tip because I had to get up for every drink, and they just poured it in a glass. Are you even supposed to tip anything for a beer? I've heard varying opinions. 3) They need more and better seating. I get they are trying to save money with the lawn furniture from IKEA inside (cheap metal chairs), but they need a lot more seating if they want to expand. To be fair, some of the chairs were more plush sofa-like things. In conclusion, are they a brewery or a restaurant? It seems like an identify crisis. I think they should try to become more of a restaurant, assuming they are willing to improve the food, seating, and service. This requires more than being able to brew good beer.
  • This place is way cool. Great beers on tap, nice appetizer like chow, and very cool beertenders. The Badass IPA is yummy. Bringing friends next time to show them this gem. Recommended for sure
  • Have visited half a dozen times and always enjoy the experience. Great beer and nice set up. Bartenders are welcoming and they have a small but unique selection of food. It is a great local brewery if you want to support local. You won't be disappointed by the beer and they have a good selection.
  • Ever since they got a new brewer this place has excelled at making some fantastic brews. Highly recommend if you're anywhere near.
