Establishment: Flour City Brewing, Incorporated, Rochester, NY

Finally, I found a brewpub that I enjoyed in Rochester. I sat in the bar area during the football game on Sunday afternoon and really enjoyed myself. The pumpkin ale was phenomenal. It was very aromatic and just as tasty. The food there also was very good. All of the appetizers looked appealing and the burger that I had was good as well.

After a bad experience at Bru, I figured things couldn't get worse, but I guess I was wrong. We headed to the Distillery on the way back to our hotel after a hockey game. We were greeted by a hostess who told us that there was a 10 minute wait, despite the fact that we could see numerous empty tables throughout the restaurant. Once we were seated, it took the server 5 minutes to even acknowledge us. There were only 3 of their own beers available last night and none of them really seemed all that appealing. It took nearly 10 minutes for our soups to arrive, which, came out lukewarm (shocking) and another 10 minutes for our entree to come out, also luke warm. I'll stick with Flour City from now on when in the Rochester area.

It's such a shame that this "brewpub" is in the same space that used to be Empire Brewing Company. I went to Bru with some friends after a hockey game this weekend. After waiting nearly 10 minutes for our server, we learn that they are only serving food off of their late night menu, chocked full of deep fried foods only. To make matters worse, we are then told that they are out of half of the menu and only have fries, sweet potato fries, chips/salsa, wings and personal pizzas left. We place our order and then the waitress comes back to tell us that there is only 1 pizza left! In retrospect, I wish that they were out of pizza because it was simply a frozen pizza with zero flavor. Needless to say, we left there very disappointed and with heartburn from the food that they actually had.
