What a great little oasis in a strip mall. Don't be put off by the location, this place has a great beer selection of stuff you won't find elsewhere. Try a Belgian saison and a toastie for a nice lunch.

Located in a strip of shops set off of South Broadway, The Thirsty Belgian is a small place owned by a local couple who worked for many years at the Whistle Binkies pubs in Rochester.

The nine taps are a rotating variety of Belgians, Belgian-style beers, and IPAs accompanied by Stella Artois and Stella Cidre. One of the things I like about this place is the well-curated, but ever-changing tap offerings. An extensive bottle list is also available.

Service is a team effort - there is no looking for your server, anyone with help you out.

Food is a collection of small plates, salads, pressed sandwiches, and flatbread-style pizzas that use naan as the crust. In my trips there I have tasted most of the menu and haven't found a bad item.

Nice place not a super location. 10 beers on tap most rotating only 2 main stays being Stella and Stella cidre. Rotating sour on tap always a plus. Food is good, desert is good as well. Would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a change of pace from the other beer bars in this town.
