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 didn’t 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 I’ve 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.

An interesting little brew shop. They sell all sorts of merchandise and you can get growlers of any of their beers. The tour is interesting but it is not much to see.

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.

Good Place to get beer and go. They are experienced crafters, and very friendly. Sell growlers and other merchandise. Family friendly, which is a plus if you have one.

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 you’re in the area.

Small-time brewery that brews house brews for many bars and restaurants in the western NY area. Enjoyable to take a tour on weekends, staff is very involved and knows a lot about the brewing. Bar is almost nonexistent - a simple counter, sink, register and 6-8 taps sticking out of the wall/fridge. They only sell growlers & kegs, not meant to be a working bar. Enjoyable for the surrounding countryside and small brewery experience, though nothing really special brewed here.
