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 didnít 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)

Nice place with essentially one really big open space. Sort of an industrial wooden interior with several pool tables (possibly full size) spaced a little too close together in the middle. Adequate array of sports tuned tvís around here and there. The beer I tried was pretty solid but not more. I wish the food was as good as the beer. It was just OK and a bit disappointing.

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 Shepherdís pie which was actually pretty good but my boyfriend got the sesame chicken which was not good at it is hit or miss). A low key, chill kind of atmosphere and good beer to boot. I had a great time here!

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 canít see why I wouldnít come back. I brought home a growler of the Pale Ale, and Iíll 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 Applebeeís. The quality of the food, though an interesting selection, unfortunately also could be found at Applebeeís. Beer was standard brewpub fare, low gravity brews, but a wide variety of them so as far as Iím 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 Iíd love to have close by, and would return to in an instant.

Itís 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 wonít 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.

Interesting place made out of an old factory. Atmosphere is very nice. Food was decent, but everybody in my party ended up with food poisoning. Beer was pretty good.

The brewpub is in an old brick building that fits perfectly with the feel of downtown Rochester. Very clean, with an olden time feel that perfectly fits a brewery. The restaurant is very open, with a lot of hardwood, large windows and brick interior. We visited on a Sunday night and the crowd was small. We played a few games of free pool. The menu is extensive with an interesting list of sandwiches, salads and pizzas. The beer menu was standard but solid. We tried the red, ipa and wit and all were well built. I was able to get a six pack of their canned lager and they threw in a can of the breweryís batch 1000 as the sixth can. A fun time and a place I will definitly visit again if I am in the area.

I donít know why I havenít put my 2 cents worth on RM. I have been going to RM for over 3 years. I always thought the food was good. I went last night with my wife and a few other people .This is the 1st time the Louisiana Jambalaya wasnít good , other food I have had before are Brewmasterís Shepherdís Pie , Hungarian Goulash. All have been good. before but after last nights dinner and the comments I got from the other people it appears thet the quality odf the food has gone down hill a little. The beer hasnít changed still good
