Other Half Brewing challenges breweries to get 'All Together'

Other Half Brewing challenges breweries to get 'All Together'

Other Half Brewing launches an initiative to benefit service workers whose jobs have been sidelined by the coronavirus pandemic.


Quaran-tea time

Catch up with friends over video chat with while you quarantine with a sweet treat
Combine a virtual hangout and check-in with one another while supporting the local bakeries and pastry shops that are still open for biz. Place your orders ahead of time, brew up your favorite Darjeeling, Earl Grey, or rooibos, and take a mid-afternoon work break with friends and fam.

A sobering reality

This column is another reminder, and a sobering warning: not all small businesses will survive this. Many will permanently shutter their doors as a result of this stagnation, including local breweries. But patrons can still help support them.


Open for (limited) business

The local food industry took a big hit when the state mandated that all restaurants, bars, and cafés switch to take-out only. Here we present a running list of places that are open for to-go orders, and what else patrons can do to help their favorite eateries through this time.

Fizzy lifting drinks

Beer may not be on the top of our shopping lists as we prepare to practice social distancing and brace for a seemingly inevitable quarantine. But local breweries are going to be hit hard by the state-mandated closures, so consider adding a four-pack or two to your cart.


Fresh takes on a mainstay

For the easily-bored crowd of craft beer devotees, Rochester’s thriving beer scene promises your glass will always be filled with something fresh and new. Join writer Gino Fanelli and other beer aficionados as they discuss “What’s new in IPAs” on Wednesday, March 11, at Sager Beer Works.


Fast, relaxing food

Rachel's Mediterranean Grill, a fast-casual Lebanese staple from Buffalo, has expanded to Rochester, with locations in Henrietta and Pittsford.

Dining Reviews

A damn good Sunday dinner

We got a hot tip that there's a new chicken dinner pop-up event in town called Damn Good Chicken. Chris checked out its inaugural Sunday dinner, co-hosted by Julia K. Caters, and fell in love with the spicy honey.

Dining Reviews

Love at first sight

When Gino heard about the coffee-kombucha collaboration, he envisioned acidic and tart flavors clashing with dark-roasted notes into a muddled, nauseating mess. But Imbue, a new collaboration between Katboocha and Joe Bean Coffee, is anything but that.
