Fun hangout, decent beer

I've come here multiple times with friends; it's a great low-key hangout spot. There are fun lawn/bar games (like giant Jenga, giant Connect Four, and hammerschlagen, in addition to some board games and an old arcade game on the side) and there are tons of tables, so it's a good place to bring a large group. Bit of a dive... More

You wouldn't think much of this place looking at the outside of the building. It has the smallest parking lot I've ever seen and it's right beside an Asian food store. The inside is another matter. It has a really cool design with beautiful wood top tables and neon lighting. They offer games and free popcorn for those that would... More

This was a fun place to stop. There were some really fun and unique beers to sample. They had giant games to play while enjoying their beer. Fun little place to visit any day of the week!

Only got to visit for about 30 minutes. But it was a very local fun spot. We were looking for a brewery on our route to Badlands and we ended up at Forager. That was more of a restaurant so we were recommended to go to Kinney Creek. Didn't regret it! They had awesome games there as well.

This was a very pleasant stop. We tried two different brews rather than getting the sampler that we would have normally done. Both were not quite exceptional, but VERY close. The barstaff was wonderful and made this a fun experience. The one downside was that they had a lot of hoppy beers, but not much on the malt side. I... More

We were looking for something to do in the area, found this place from trip advisor. We were not dissapointed. We got a flight of beers to try out different kinds. It was a quiet afternoon, and the bartender gave us an impromptu tour of the area where they make the beer . Place looks like nothing from the outside,... More

I stayed in Rochester for 4 days and came to this place to enjoy local craft beers on 3 of those nights. Very friendly and personable bar tender. IPAs and stouts were both top notch. Love the oil cans they sell to take home. Highly recommend this place.

All the beers we sampled in our flights were dark beers. Delicious! Our favorite was the bourbon barrel aged Darca-doo Imperial Stout. The owner/brewmaster was there and gave us a short tour and talked beer making with us for some time. The Darca-doo is my favorite beer so far on this beer vacation.
