Fodor's Expert Review Custom BrewCrafters
If you enjoy a microbrew at a Rochester bar or restaurant, chances are it was brewed here. The 6,000-square-foot brewery makes more than 50 beers (20 kegs at a time), which are served throughout western New York. Tours explain the brewing process, and free samples let you taste brews that have won at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver as well as at other national and local competitions. The 25-mi drive to the brewery from downtown (Route 31 to Route 65 south) takes you from city to country in about 20 minutes.
