Awesome new brewery in Rochester! Bright and airy with modern design. Brews for the adults and games and sodas for the kids. Nice outdoor space. Easily bikable. Food via local establishments or food trucks. Nice sessionable beer. IPAs and Scotch ale are great as are the Berliner Weisse. Currently 3 beers on tap...shooting for 6-8.

One of the nicest, most well thought out taprooms I have been to and I have been to many. Short car drive from Forager and LTS. Adequate space for the number of customers their beer will gather. THEY HAVE TWO BEER ENGINES! A wide variety of beer styles (even some without adjuncts), but just wish everything tasted better. Nice variety of seating and a nice size bar. Sizeable patio. Bar games and video games available. Plenty of parking wrapping around the building. Clean and modern bathrooms.

2022 edit: The beer engines are gone. But this seems to be the most popular and best taproom in Rochester. Packed on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Most of the beer is not of the styles that I want to drink but that is the world today.

Owners are super friendly and very community oriented. Good beers that rotate on a regular basis; food trucks and other events happen regularly. Right off the Douglas trail, which is a plus for bikers and runners.

Brand new brewery at the end of the street.Its sits up on the hill. Walking in seats and projection screen to the left,visible brewery in the middle and bar and service to the right rear, adequate seats inside with a good size seating area outside,several garage doors that open to bring the outside in. They sell several styles and sizes from tasters, half pours ,or pints,crowlers and swag to go. Service was very good as were the 2 brews i had. Looks to be very kid friendly and dog. Lots of clean lines thru -out, looked to be very family- clicky oriented but was there on a Sunday. Worth a stop as it it only 1-2 miles from Forager.
