Cool brewpub in industrial building on the east side of Rochester. Building is divided left half brew house, right half tasting room. Very much a locals hangout. U-shaped bar in center of room seats about 15 with tables and booths along the perimeter walls and a small patio out back. 16 well assorted beers, lots of creamy milkshaky IPAs, I had the Orange Cream and the NEIPA, both were excellent... Decadent-like. Friendly service. I also had the K2 Burger and it was quite tasty. Very enjoyable stop.

Nicely setup place, with good air conditioning. Maybe unexpectedly, they were busy for only one server. Mostly confection stuff, but the flight was ok. They were trying.

Visited on a Saturday mid afternoon. Could tell it wasn’t a popular time but the staff were very friendly. Tried several tasters and went with a crowler of raspberry milkshake ipa. Loved the unique varieties they had. Jalapeño cream ale was very good as was the coffee stout. Will return soon to try others. Nice atmosphere!

a cool spot here right on the shores of the lake, scenic views abound this time of year. everything inside seems brand new, not sure how long they have been open, but it still even smells new. they have a wooden features and concrete vibe, with a three sided bar in the middle of the space, an outdoor area in the back which we didnt check out but seems to be the place to be, and some scattered inside seating. im not in love with the television beer menus, they definitely dominate the feel when at the bar, but they have a great list of beers on tap, impressively diverse. unfortunately, i didnt love any of the beers we had, but there were some good ones, including a new york state grown chinook pale ale and an india pale lager that was drinkable. others tasted a bit safe and generic, but none of them were bad, not at all. very busy in here on a sunday afternoon, and it was tough to find a table. even tougher was getting some attention at the bar. every single round we had a 20 minute wait, they had plenty of people working, but there was no hustle, its a bad look to have to wait that long for a beer at a brewery, and it was increasingly frustrating each round. they have a food window in the back that does some pretty solid stuff, we had a nice poutine, and truthfully everything that came out of there was good, better than bar food for sure, so good job on that side of the operation. these guys offer a full spectrum kind of beer menu and a nice location right on the lake, but the beer didnt quite stack up to the best breweries in rochester, and the service needs some work during the busy times...

Wow this place is great! A pretty big brewery that offers a food menu from a food truck on site which is a BBQ place but, I'm not sure if there are different food trucks rotating. Regardless the food was great. My friend and I had smoked BBQ wings and some fries. Simple food yet great taste. They had about 20 beers on tap I believe ranging from porters, stouts, IPA's, DIPA's, ambers 1 sour, and a few nitro taps. They had an excellent DDH Galaxy IPA and a really good peanut butter porter. There are 4 beers in a flight and you get a little container of pretzels on the side free of charge. Probably one of the best breweries I've been too in a while. Highly recommend this establishment!
