The original Distillery Restaurant opened its doors in 1980 on Mt Hope Avenue in Rochester, New York. It quickly became a favorite spot for locals and visitors who met over good food and cold beer to discuss the various issues of the day, catch up with friends, make new acquaintances and celebrate life!

It is outfitted with a generous assortment of tap handles ranging from classic lagers to more distinct ales and pilsners, maintained at a constant 34-degree temperature, keeping the beer consistently fresh and perfectly chilled for every glass served. Guests can sip their favorite draft beer from the popular pint, tall or the classic chalice.
