    Hello All -

    I'm frequenting Rochester more and more over the past couple months. It seems stores have a lithe more stock of what is typically sold out in the cities. Anyone have any suggestions of things to pick up and try or local stops that have some good stuff in stock?
  2. Rochester is pretty much a franchise town, and this includes liquor stores. Andy's Apollo and MGM are your main liquor store options. Andy's crossroads is pretty much your best bet IMO. whistle binkies is pretty good but i feel like the staff is much worse than it used to be and the taproom is easily the best beer bar in town.
  3. My wife is in Rochester this weekend. I was going to have her pick up some Surly and Odell. Anything else more local she should be looking for?

    I'd recommend Ovalde for sure and definitely NOT Kinney Creek
