Micros to pick up at Wegman's, Rochester
We are coming from Toronto to Rochester for two nights and we want to bring home some new-to-us beers in a variety of styles. I am reading mixed things about Wegman's selection. We will be staying downtown and really don't want to do a lot of driving/navigating so I figured the East Avenue location of Wegman's, but if a better beer store can be found easily please let me know!
Southern Tier is a local beer to that area. They make a good IPA but I'd say try them all since you are just visiting. Also Great Lakes Brewing Co, Erie Brewing Co., are near that area. Anything from Troeg's, Victory, Stoudt's, Bell's, Brooklyn, or DogfishHead are really good options if you can't get it in Toronto. Wegmans will probably only have six or twelve packs available for take-out. You are allowed as many as you want in total but only allowed to pay for 164 oz. at a time. Maybe you could find a mix your own six pack shop in downtown Rochester. That will really allow you the best way to sample. Good Luck!
Not sure about Rochester but my Wegmans, in Ithaca, just opened a big beer section with tons of microbrews. It is really nice! Good luck
