Three Heads Brewing

The journey begins with Dan Nothnagle. For the past 20 plus years, he has endeavored to try as many great beers from around the world. Dan began to share the beers he had collected with his friends, Todd Dirrigl, Brian Johnson and Geoff Dale. They all seemed drawn to the brews they tried from the West Coast. It occurred to this crew that no one in the Rochester area was making beers of such distinction that the West Coast boasted and the idea to open a brewery was launched. Three Heads Brewing has comprised a perfect combination of talent, friendship, and commitment to great beer. Each of the crew brings a unique ability to the business and has a distinct background. They hope to continue to grow and always make beers you enjoy.

Rohrbach Brewing Company ~ Rail Road St.

Rohrbach began when beer lover John Urlaub, returned to Rochester after an assignment in the village of Rohrbach, Germany in 1992. Rohrbach’s newest facility and tasting room recently opened on Railroad Street in Rochester’s historic public market district. Rohrbach’s has become one of Rochester’s signature brewers with many award-winning varieties to choose from year-round. You’ll sample some of the most incredible flavored beers in Rochester
