A very good beer bar with lots of tap selection, great service and environment. Fifteen taps, with a few great national choices and mostly New York local fare. Good glass selection thatís hand washed. A few niro taps, mostly good carbonation input. Gorgeous and new wood and artwork, the altter based on Van Gogh. A few patio tables. Reviving area. Improvement suggestions: a bit more variety in cask. Up to date tap list on the web is spot on. Very motivated and friendly staff. This is an up and coming place.

Stopped in at lunchtime. Average atmosphere. Tender was friendly and spoke a bit about beers. Decent selection, though I canít say it blew me away. Beers were in good condition. Seems like one of the best 3-4 places in town to drink. Would like to stop back in the evening.

Nice enough place with a pretty solid beer list and good, knowledgeable service. I wasnít thrilled with the food I got and it was pretty expensive even for the average beers, but all in a pretty good place for good beer.

Nice new place in South Wedge where the old MacGregors used to be. Very contemporary/upscale look with strange art and music. Food was good enough. Great beer selection. One on cask, about 30 on tap, including some Belgian and English beers. The house beer is an English bitter brewed by Custom Brewcrafters and is actually pretty good. Definitely worth stopping in.

UDBeernut  (104) Near Buffalo, New York | May 29, 2012
Nice cool atmosphere, lots of beers and styles to choose on draft... many locals, some not so much. 1 beer on cask. Proper clean glasswear to boot. I got the taco which was huge and tough to eat but tasty none the less. Service was average to poor. The one bar tender seemed to busy to fully listen to what I asked for, the other seemed too slow. Over all a solid place, but not one that deserves as high of a rating that it has. I did not think prices were as bad as what other reviewers had though.... maybe I am just used to being closer to NYC.

We went here on a Thursday night in April of 2010. Ambiance was nice enough - kinda chill, dim lighting, steel sculptures of brewery logos on the wall. The tap list was OK, but not great. Solid offerings included DFH India Brown Ale and Anchor Porter. Bottle list was decent, with stuff from Stone and Unibroue. Service was attentive and happily fixed a miscommunication we had when ordering. Kinda annoying to be IDed as soon as you walk in the door, but not a huge hassle.

8/25/2009 I went here two weeks ago while on vacation with the family. Our visit was on a Wednesday evening for a late dinner. We were there at about 8pm and the place was kind of quiet. A few people at the bar and two or three other tables in the dining area. The building sits on a corner, you walk in from the left hand side and the bar is immediately to the left along that wall. There is a dining area off to the right which is where we sat. Not much in the way of decor, kind of plain with paintings on the wall each one with a price tag on it. They had 30 or so beers on tap and one cask the night we were there. They also have a pretty good bottle list as well. I stuck with some regionals that I canít get at home. Custom Brewcrafters, and Great Lakes helped me out this evening. The food was really good, I had the Mojo Pork, my wife had the Cuban, and the kids split a steak. Points off for no kids menu! My wife complained about how foo foo the menu is. Meh. Our server was right on top of things, very attentive and easily found. Great little beer bar, if I lived a bit closer I could see spending some time in here.

My favorite bar in all of Rochester. My friends and I will try out different beers while lounging in the corner playing darts. A really nice, cozy atmosphere that draws laid-back people. Paintings of faces on the wall kinda wierd me out, though. And if the dart board is taken up, better hope your with good company or the place could seem a little boring. Iíve never had that problem though. Like I said, this bar attracts cool beer enthusiasts who come for the hops and malt (T&M has an outstanding selection). If beer isnít for you, then thereís no reason to chill here as itís the beer that sets it far apart from its counterparts. #11 on 12102009 DG.

Nice downtown bar with good amount of parking for a city bar. Good selection, but expensive. Staff is nice enough, but more interested in talking to each other than customers.

Really nice beer selection. Lots of quality taps and a really good bottle selection. Always have something different on that Iíve never had before. Decor is much better than the old MacGregorís. Good atmosphere. Foodís standard bar food, at least what Iíve had, but the staff is really good about talking beer. Good place and highly recommended if you like good beer.
