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)

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.

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.

This is a nice place to go, not only for a decent beer selection, but also a nice dinner. Sometimes it smells a little too much like a brewery, which I know sounds strange, but Dragonmead and Sherwood do not have this problem. Itís almost as if the spilled beer doesnít get wiped up.

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

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.

I head to Rochester Mills whenever Iím visiting my brother and his family who live within walking distance of here. The best beer that Iíve had here is the Cornerstone IPA which is a great Pacific Northwest IPA Another good beer is the Sacrilicious Stout. I will be checking out the Detroit Beer Company in downtown Detroit in April.

A neat old textile mill with ok food and ok beer. Decent stouts and seasonal hefes. They also have some decent bottled beer that is not their own and Guiness on tap. Cool atmosphere with weekend live music and a cigar lounge/bar in back. Itís a cool place...the beer is ok, but nothing amazing.

About an hour out of Detroit, RM is a great place to check out. I went in the afternoon and even during the lunch hour it was busy. The building is very rustic with a renovated inside. There is plenty of seating but itís wide open with little dining privacy. Families were there when I went so the food is an attraction in itself. Service was average but a tad on the slow side. There is a central games area with billiards; a corner for a live band and dancing; a secondary bar/room for cigar smokers. The place has an interesting feel to it. There are 8-10 house brews with a good variety of flavour and colour. I only sampled the porter but it was very tasty. [August, 2009] I never tire of RM - easily my most favourite brewpub. Iíve tried them all and find the beer and food to be outstanding. Try the Brewhouse Turkey Reuben! My only wish that it was closer to where I live, otherwise Iíd be a regular there.
