This was stop #1 for my wife and I on a 9-day East Coast pub crawl and a family visit. The brewery is located slightly away from the busy Rochester area and any other retail business, and the building has a rustic style form the exterior, as does the pub area on the inside. The dining room is not quite so, but the vibe of the place is very good.
There were 10 beers on tap, so we ordered two 4-glass sampler flights to go with our meal. All of the beers were brewed to style and were tasty with one possible exception – the Old Ale. We thought the alcohol was a little too hot in this one. Most of the beers exceeded the characteristics for their style and were rated at a B or a B minus in our grading system. The most notable beer was the Citra Double IPA, but that hop variety is also our favorite so there is some bias there.
The restaurant has a German ownership background, and there are a few German dishes on the menu, so we each ordered one of those entrees. The food was excellent. The place was busy, so it appears that many other patrons agree with our assessment.
This area was the overnight location on our way to the East Coast to visit our family, and on previous trips we’ve stayed in the Albany and Syracuse areas without finding a brewery as good as this one. So on future trips, this is where we’ll be spending the night, and we’ll definitely revisit this brewery.
