An Evening on Railroad Street

Back by demand, and better than ever, you and a guest are invited to experience Rochester’s thriving craft beverage scene, featuring Railroad Street’s very own Rohrbach Beer Hall & Black Button Distilling.
The evening will begin at 6pm at the Rohrbach Beer Hall where you and a guest will each enjoy a beer and share a wood-fired pizza of choice.  At 7pm, the “Railroad Street Craft Beverage Production Tour” begins in the Rohrbach Brewery and continues at Black Button Distilling giving you a behind the scenes look at how craft beer and spirits are made. By 7:45pm, guests will toast their evening in the Tasting Room at Black Button with a cocktail of their choice.  Each group of two will also receive a voucher for $5 off any 750ml bottle of Black Button spirits.
