We enjoyed lunch and brews at the restaurant and learned some history about the brewery. We didn’t have time for the brewery tour, so we’ll have to come back. Nearby, the views of the Genesee river are amazing!

Forget the food for a moment. If you’ve been looking for a place to see the Rochester downtown skyline and the High Falls, you just found it. The best time to go is when it is still light out, but close enough to sunset so...More
