Iíve been here about 5 times for samples with large amount of choices, just once for dinner. Always prompt service for the beer samples from knowledgeable servers at the sampling bar. Food was another story as our waitress was hanging out with people drinking beer and did not cross over into the eating area too often. (Jan. 2014) Sampling, dinner and gift store all in one large room. Always a fun visit.
A bit out in the middle of nowhere, but worth a trip. In the tasting room, it is $4 for 6 tasters, but if you pay $6, you get a tasting glass which is much bigger. Only 1 flight per person per visit. There is a bar a restaurant here as well where you can get pints for $4.50. Lots of beers to choose from, their own as well as the contract brews they do. Quality is good, though many are somewhat uninspired. Nice place. Would stop in often if I lived nearby. Servers were enthusiastic and friendly.
Cute little brewery in the countryside with welcoming staff. A bunch of their beers on tap behind a simple, wooden bar. One of the taps even features Root Beer (which I sampled and didnít think it was that memorable). A nice gift store occupies the same space as the bar area, which is nice to look though while waiting for a tour. The guys running the tour were knowledgeable about their craft, and you could tell they all take pride in their establishment. Real hops are grown around their sign outside the door for a neat touch. Simple, but worth the drive. #14 on 12102009 DG.
Huge three-sided wooden bar around about 18-20 taps. Friendly bartenders (sometimes a little too friendly, since one spent about 20 minutes with a customer while I was waiting for a refill). It was $3 for six samples, and I upgraded to $5 for six samples and a 4-ounce tasting glass. Tons of beers available, maybe the most of any tasting room Iíve ever been to. This new spot is much bigger than the old gift-shop style location. If I lived anywhere near it, I would be there all the time.

Have looked forward to going here for some time. Have a reason to go back as we did not do a tour. Lots of staff and they are very knowledgeable about the beer. Basically any question you could throw at them from questions about the beers themselves to the marketing of them, thoughts on bottling, etc. Tons of selection. A large group of taps representing Buffalo Tap Room beers (BTR) , a large group of amber taps, and then an eclectic center section of taps including the special selection(s) that are not regularly brewed. Will definitely head back here from time to time. PS, they now have more like 18-20 or more taps.
A nice drive, though complicated, southeast of Rochester, worth stopping in. Generous sampling, a nice bar, lots of selection, time for touring, and vey good quality merchandise. Extra samples in the back because I was a beer geek.
Very nice, small, tucked-away brewery that kicks out a lot of beers for the Rochester area. You can go in for a tour and a sampling of all the selections of their beers currently on tap. Nice little store for shopping. They sell growlers, and lots of pretty cool merchandise. The staff is very friendly, knowledgable and willing to answer your questions. They usually have their root beer on tap for the kids and the non-beer drinkers as well. A nice place and definitely worth checking out if youíre in the area.
Showed up on a saturday for a tour. The staff was very welcoming and knowledgable. Nice selection of merchandise available for sale. Pretty decen beers available while I was there. I got a growler and I will be re-filling.
