    Dude’s Brew is a smooth, full-bodied porter that brings forth rich chocolate flavors with a hint of hops to balance out some of the roasted notes. Go ahead and indulge. You deserve it.

  • golden

    Golden Pale Ale

    This flavorful, drinkable Golden Pale Ale begins with an aroma of floral hops that leads you into a world of balance. Hops and sweet malt are certain to please the palate and in the finish a hint of honey leaves you wanting more. This ale is an enjoyable session beer that some may call an American twist on an English Pale Ale. An ideal “crossover beer,” this Golden Pale is a great gateway for those entering the world of craft beers. Best enjoyed with light summer fare and good friends.

  • On Tap Roc Brewing Irish Red Ale

    Cullinan’s Revival

    This Irish Red Ale has a reddish-amber hue that starts with a deep, malty backbone complimented by a subtle but noticible hop bitterness in the beginning. It finishes with sweet malt notes leading into a crisp, dry finish. This all-seasonal brew pairs with intense, flavorful foods (such as cajun or BBQ), or is perfect by itself. We know you will love every sip!

  • On Tap Roc Brewing English Dark Mild

    Dark Mild

    Small beer, big ego. This mahogany colored ale is a delightful medley of malted barley. As you peel back the layers of malt, you’ll discover a delicate beer surrounded with complexity and blended with the flavors of toasted bread and chocolate cake. There’s even a hint of coffee for that roasted dry element your palate craves. The Mild is best enjoyed fresh and prides itself as a low-alcohol session beer. Its dark facade and nutty finish provide an allure that is truly one of a kind. Our mild is well-suited for draught and cask conditioning. Hungry? We suggest pairing with grilled portobellos and seared beef garnished with truffle oil.

  • Roc Brewing IPA

    Vague IPA

    By definition an India Pale Ale is known for hops. 70 IBUs and an assertive array of American hops lay blankets of grapefruit, orange nectar, and sticky mango across your senses. This assortment will be certain to remain in your flavor memory. The background malt is reminiscent of graham cracker and faint caramel which adds subtle sweetness and toasted notes. An unabashed dosing of “dry-hops” gives way to abundant aroma and bright citrus flavor. Enjoy it in the company of good friends with barbecued chicken and mango-habanero salsa.

  • On Tap

    Lil’ SIPA

    In a world where “the more hops the better” is pretty much dogma, we decided to challenge the IPA norm. The result is less of a hop bomb with more grapefruit and pineapple flavors, and more drinkability. Lil SIPA is a truly sessionable IPA that keeps you coming back for more – or is it less? Either way, you’re sure to be pleased.

  • Maibock

    ThreeNinety Bock

    The brewers at Samuel Adams and Roc Brewing were inspired by the distance, in miles, between Boston, M.A. and Rochester, N.Y. – hence the name ThreeNinety Bock. At first glance the unconventional Maibock offers an appealing hue of tangerine. At first sip you experience the depth and character of robust bread crust and European malt. The brew has a subtle spice from rye malt and a marmalade sweetness that blends in a hint of smoke for good measure, and a slightly sweet dry finish that is sure to be enjoyed.

  • Roc Brewing Rye IPA

    Don’t Fear the RIPA

    Bright aromatics and a profound citrus zest reveal a fragrant bouquet. A rush of rich malt and smooth texture blends seamlessly into a subtle spiciness revealed by the rye. It’s crimson hue indicates the vibrance of both the fusion of malted rye and tropical undertones from generous additions of American hops. This beer truly showcases the depth rye can attain. Pair this beer with some Chesapeake flair, a jumbo lump crab cake littered with Old Bay seasoning or blackened tilapia tacos with cilantro and lime slaw.

  • On Tap

    Gluten-Free

    A craft beer free of gluten but not of flavor!

    Please note: Our commitment to offering an original beer brewed without gluten is constant but the beer’s style, IBU’s and alcohol may change. Feel free to contact us for specifics on the current gluten-free options.

  • Kyoto Protocol

    In a style of limitless boundaries, our Sumatra IPA is sure to stand bold on its own. At first glance it’s orange hue alludes to a juicy blend of tangerine, citrus peel and mango. As the aroma blooms from the glass you’re introduced to an entirely exotic experience of molasses and roast. A delicate, yet pronounced, blend of fruit nectars escape over your palate while the savory flavors of Sumatra are most exposed. These flavors can only be obtained through our collaborative effort with Joe Bean Coffee Roasters. This uniquely Rochester product is the first in a series showcasing the blends of beer & coffee combinations. This is best enjoyed at brunch with pineapple french toast and grilled breakfast sausage.

  • Wet Smash

    We took a very simple Pale Ale and made it better. Once a year the hop harvest happens and we used some locally grown hops from Schmidt Hops Farm and Bluebell Hopyard both in Farmington NY. Check out the rotating line up of Centennial, Willamette, Chinook and a special blend all fall long.

  • OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    Union 56

    Ever-changing with every brew, our house Pale Ale is a truly evolutionary beer. With the brewery’s address as its namesake, the “56″ provides an artisanal canvas for Humulus lupulus, a.k.a hops. Each time we head to the kettles we utilize a different blend of our favorite female flower clusters to create a whole new taste. Whether you’re experiencing flavors of pine from the American Northwest, spice from Eastern Europe, or a barrage of lychee and asian pear from the Pacific Rim, this “worldly” beer has a way of making you feel right at home.

  • panther

    Sex Panther

    Deep within the dense jungles of the Pacific Northwest are some of the world’s most sought after hops, and we went to extreme measures to make them our own. Under the cover of nightfall, we procured their nectar. Once their precious oils were contained, we used them to craft a resiny Black IPA teeming with pine, tangerine, and grapefruit all backed by an enticing touch of roast. There’s only one name for this pungent bouquet of aromatics and dank flavor. We give you Sex Panther. Dare to say no.

  • On Tap Saison Belgian Farmhouse Ale

    Saison De ‘Ron

    Historically a beer to repay farmhands, this is a style that places emphasis on the yeast most predominantly. A spiced flavor flirts with grassy and floral hops lending depth and intrigue. It’s pale straw color of continental malts brings you back to the Belgian grain fields in which this style was conceived. The crisp, dry finish tumbles off the palate and pairs well with herb crusted chicken and wild mushrooms.

  • ESB

    Traditionally brewed with noble hops and tastes like a toastier version of an English Pale Ale. Extremely sessionable in nature – this guy will have you saying ‘mate by the end of your round!

  • oatmeal

    Oatmeal Stout

    No affectations, and certainly no gimmicks. Brewed truly to style, the aroma of bakers chocolate and fresh roasted coffee playfully waft from the glass. A rich blend of kilned malts give way to creamy caramel, subtle roastiness, and a hint of vanilla. The oats impart depth of character and a velveteen texture that rounds out all the flavors. Recommended pairings: Nutella filled crepes with shaved hazelnuts and a dusting of cocoa powder. Or as an appetizer, warm sourdough bread with Gruyere.

  • Amber Ale

    Expect to find a good, toasted malty character in addition to some fruity and floral notes from the hops. Stop in for a pint or two of this well-balanced ale.
