Gone here a few times for tastings at the pilot brewery and pints in the restaurant. You can do a flight of tastings of Brew House exclusives/Dundee beers/the core Genesee lineup. Genny Cream tastes a lot better at the source. The restaurant upstairs is nice- the food is serviceable, not great, but the beer is fresh and tasty. There's a bit of a Rochester beer museum downstairs too. Definitely worth a trip if you're in High Falls or Rochester in general.

Growing up in Rochester, NY I became a big fan of the Genesee Brewing Company. While I moved away to be in the service, I was still quite saddened as they worked through some rough times. I never thought the day would come that I would visit the place and be served high quality microbrew.

The Genesee Brew House has three main areas, a museum/gift shop, a restaurant and the pilot brewery/tasting area. Although I wasn't able to sample the restaurant, the place was quite busy and the menu looked good. There are a large number of displays in the museum/gift shop area about the history of the Genesee Brewery - I would allow about 15-20 minutes to check the place out. Naturally the gift shop is well stocked with Genesee themed merchandise as well as beers. You can take a short (15-20 minute) tour of the pilot brewery. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the entire brewing process. The tasting area overlooks the pilot brewery and makes for a decent atmosphere. My wife and I shared a four beer flight ($2.00) and took a growler of English Ale to go. In addition to Genesee and Dundee beers, they also had "Brew House" Blonde, Oatmeal Stout and Pilsner on tap (which we sampled in the flight alone with the Dundee English style ale).

Overall I would highly recommend any beer lover who is in the area to stop by. There is a huge parking lot and it is easy to find.

Went to the Genny brew house and loved it. The beer is so fresh since the brewery is right next door. The Pilot brewery is really cool too. They experiment with different styles of beer and come up with some really nice brew. The food is really good too. The Genesee beer museum is really neat too. They just opened a new party patio. If you from out of town and like a nice spot to go to for a few beers this is the place for you.

Both the food and beer are good but not spectacular. Friendly wait staff. No waiting for a table the day I went. The museum on the history of beer and Genesee in Rochester was pretty cool. Pricing on the merchandise in the museum is better than the pricing on beer and food. It was a pretty enjoyable experience and I'll be back.
