This blog post is going to mean absolutely nothing to every single one of my readers except for the handful of those who have:
A) Been to Rochester, NY
B) Have experienced the savory goodness of Rohrbach’s Highland Lager (aka “heaven by the pint”).
My favorite brewer on the face of the earth announced yesterday that they will be building a new brewery by Rochester’s Public Market (ie, about five blocks from my house). The new facility will be considerably larger than their current brewery, increasing operations by about 30 percent. It will also include a tasting and retail-sales room as well as brewery tours.
But, the most fantabulous news of all is that the new facility will eventually be expanded further to include… wait for it… a bottling line! That means that you will no longer have taking home a growler (thus having to drink a half gallon of beer before it goes flat) as your only option for enjoying a Rohrbach’s at home. And you may soon be able to pick up a sixer at your local convenience store, rather than making the trek out to their current location on the far-west side of town.
So I will now be living equal distance between The Old Toad and the Rohrbach’s brewery. That’s probably bad news for Marge and the boy, but woo-hoo!
