Although there are many new breweries popping up around town this one should not be forgotten. Good time, good friends, good beer.

This is one of our favorite places to stop for a great selection of beers and something to munch. The staff is friendly and efficient. Trivia on Wednesdays brings in a diverse crowd having a great time. There is a mug club with several brunches and a $5 growler refill once a month. Highly recommend!

Came here to sample some local beer. The facility itself was all, but pleasant. They had board games and a nice seating area. The bar was rather small and the selection of beers was perhaps a dozen (beer and hard ciders). But there certainly was enough to choose from considering you can only have a few per visit without getting... More

We stayed at the Radisson and walked up to Roc brewing around 5 on a Saturday. We were worried it was going to be busy, but when we walked in, hardly anyone was here. We got a seat at the bar which was nice. We tried 2 samples each for free and I ended up with Patty's beer. I loved... More

Maybe there was something wrong with my taste buds when I visited Roc - so I will have to give them another chance - but I had seven beers and only one of them really stood out - not even a style I like. The place itself was cool - nice people, nice atmosphere - lots of games to play... More

If you love craft brews and/or home-brewing, a visit to ROC Brewing is a MUST! We stopped in on a Friday evening at 5 p.m., and had no problem finding a seat at the bar! We enjoyed three beers they were offering, including Whoopass (Imperial/double IPA,) Moo 2 (Stout), and Ugly Sweater (English Pale Ale)...nice variety available. The staff was... More

Roc Brewing is the best local brewery in Rochester. They are always changing up their craft beers and they have a knack for the spectrum of pallets that exist. Try a flight and you'll be hooked.
