The Rochester Bar Examiner has returned and is back to doing what he does best, writing about bars and bar themed events. Our return is kicked off with this weekend’s upcoming event, Taste of Rochester.
Many Rochestarians were saddened when it was announced that the Flour City Brewers’ Fest would not be returning this year. The Flour City Brewers’ Fest had been ongoing for years and gave the people of Rochester an opportunity to sample a variety of different beers both local and national. Rohrbach’s decided not to sponsor the Brewers Fest any more and many thought that this would be the end of the summer tradition. In comes the Taste of Rochester to save Rochester’s beer lovers with an event inside the event, The Empire Brewfest.
The Empire Brewfest is at a tent within the Taste of Rochester event that offers unlimited samples of 60 amazing craft beers. The information below was captured from the Taste of Rochester website and breaks down what then event entails.
