I’ve been a mug club member for a number of years. The food is decent, but it’s really about the beer. Over the years, they’ve had at least 5 different brewmasters, but the quality and cleanness of the beer has been very consistent.

Always good food and if you are an IPA fan theirs is quite good. Nice setting and most of the servers are great and will talk beer. Good enough for me to join their mug club.

It’s been over 10 years since the last visit here (yes, it was that bad). I heard that the place had improved and while I would agree with that, I still won’t be in a hurry to go back. The food was OK, the server was great, and the beers (Wit and IPA) were average. The best beer on tap wad the guest tap - Arcadia Starboard Stout.

I noticed right away that my score it higher than the ratings below mine, what boosted my score is the brewpub itself. It really is a great building, and beautiful inside, the food is good too. I live not far from Rochester, and I had been avoiding trying it out for some unknown reason, I finally went last week and I was pleasantly surprised. Drank a Pleasurez Pale Ale and Organic Wit. Also sampled the Wheat, Red, and Milkshake Stout. They were not earth-shattering, but I can’t see why I wouldn’t come back. I brought home a growler of the Pale Ale, and I’ll go fill it up again on a Tues/or Thurs because they run discounts. If you are in the area, sound probably stop in and check it out.

Sunday noon. Not too busy, but a beautiful day, so the outdoor seating was lovely and packed. Inside looked nice too with pool tables, tons of space, and though perhaps not much of a distinguishing character other than the spacial layout, a nice place to be. Service was attentive and well-drilled enough, though they could just as easily have been at Applebee’s. The quality of the food, though an interesting selection, unfortunately also could be found at Applebee’s. Beer was standard brewpub fare, low gravity brews, but a wide variety of them so as far as I’m concerned it meets the need of all. Perhaps they were just in between seasonals though as I see below that they do offer some bigger beers. Quality was varying from very good to average. Fine pricing.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent here. Surely a beautiful day had something to do with it, but still a place I’d love to have close by, and would return to in an instant.

An interesting little brewpub based in a historical old mill. I came here on a Sunday afternoon and got to sit outside, which was very pleasant. The service was great. There were ~10 beers on tap and the ones I tried were quite tasty. The food was ok (the descriptions make the food sound better than it is...I got the Shepherd’s pie which was actually pretty good but my boyfriend got the sesame chicken which was not good at all...so it is hit or miss). A low key, chill kind of atmosphere and good beer to boot. I had a great time here!

Set in a beautifully reappointed old brick mill building a block off the old Rochester main street, RMBC was a welcome sight on a cold Wednesday afternoon happy hour. The place was drawing a fairly good crowd for an early afternoon. Although I didn’t try the food, the three beers I had were all quite good. All together, they were offering 12 house beers on tap, including a couple big imperials. They also had 4 or 5 guest taps, ranging from Stella Artois to one guest Michigan beer; top it off with a selection of a half-dozen high-quality bottles (Belgians, mostly), and the place has a downright solid lineup. They also have free pool, a welcome diversion from sitting at the bar all by yourself looking like a dork. (Brewery #498)

I think this place is one of the best spots in Downtown Rochester. The food is excellent and the variety on the menu is unreal. From Jambalaya to Goulash to a ton of burgers and standard brewery food.
Inside, its a cool looking spot. A little packed and noisy, and TVs are kinda hard to see from most angles.
Pool tables are out there and usually are easy to access.
Beer selection is pretty solid and the local ones are decent. I like the Milkshake Stout and Rochester Red.
