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

Outside seating for the warmer months! Inside of brewery is clean. Bartenders are always friendly. Service is top notch each time I visit! Highly recommend this brewery. Oh-... 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.

Roc Brewing Co is very straight forward brewery. There really isn't much to see here. Simply enter and you're practically at the bar. What makes Roc Brewing special is some of the most amazing beer produced in the Rochester area. My personal favorite brew is the Brassy Pants, an amazing Belgian strong ale. Also of note is the Mocha Porter... More

Very nice place and a very nice staff. Overall, their beers were just average. Nothing I tasted jumped out at me at all. The chips and salsa with guacamole and sour cream were way below average. Visit to drink and talk, not to eat. Probably won't visit again.
