Genesee Brew House: Enjoy the Sparkling Waters of the Genesee

View of Beer House from Pont de Rennes above High FallsHigh above the “sparkling” waters of the Genesee River in Rochester NY, is the Genesee Brew House, once a century-old packaging center, the  Brew House has transformed the 9,200 square-foot space into a beer destination, featuring interactive exhibits, multimedia content, gift shop, pilot brewery and pub-style restaurant.

Pilot BreweryThe Brew Pub offers all the classic Genesee Beers plus a changing array of delicious microbrews, I loved the Expresso Porter. The bar upstairs was built from old beer barrel boards. It was opened in September of 2012, after a LONG restoration process which is well documented.

Genesee Brew House StoreThe  retail store sells irresistible “Beer Gear,” the great selection of vintage t-shirts, with the full “Brew-story”. We were not wowed by the food, but the beer on the terrace with this fabulous view was well worth the price.

View from the TerraceHours: Mon-Wed 11am – 9pm Thurs-Sat 11am – 10pm Sunday Noon – 9pm 25 Cataract St. Rochester, NY, 14605 Get Directions 585-263-9200 Check out their reviews on Yelp.

Ithaca — Come Visit in the Winter

Finger Lakes Summer

Taughannock Falls, higher than Niagara Falls, just outside of Ithaca

Great article in the Albany Times Union about winter fun in the Ithaca area

Ithaca may be best known as the home of both Cornell  University and Ithaca  College, but the city offers a cornucopia of attractions for  outdoors enthusiasts.

Situated in a valley on the southern tip of Cayuga Lake, about a three-hour  drive from Albany, the city’s streets slope steeply toward the water. There are  more than 100 waterfalls and gorges within 10 miles of Ithaca, leading to the  local slogan, “Ithaca is Gorges.”

Besides great food, beer and gorges sites, Ithaca has a great music scene.
