This is a great stop for lunch or dinner. You get a quick free tour showing the making of beer and then you can try a flight of some of their best brews and finish with a good meal and a great view of high falls. Be sure to go up to the roof for full effect.

Pretty much every shop closed and so we decided "Why not try to see the Brewery while here, never have been" Wow, the place is HOPPING as... More

The Genesee Brew House is one of my favorites for many reasons. Be sure to start in the Tap Room for a $3 flight of (4) beers of your choice, ($8 if you order it upstairs in the restaurant). Genesee Beer while still offering some of their original brews, is a craft brewery as well for today's beer lovers. The... More

Wonderful bar with good food. It fills up fast so get there early. This venue offers views of the river and after dinner, you can shop downstairs in the Brewery Store. It can be hard to hear and talk when it is busy.
