It is an interesting part of Rochester history but I was disappointed. The bar food was too greasy, beers good, but atmosphere was not great. I went once and will not return.

We did not do the TOUR, but did a sampling, and it was really good! Pours were larger than expected, atmosphere is very clean and nice, and it was not at all pretentious (like some other tastings have been at other places). Gift shop is...More
