An economics teacher gave his senior high school students his personal list of wisest advice. At the top of the list: "There are many ways to enter a pool. The stairs is not one of them." The same logic could be applied to sampling Rochester's craft beverage offerings. "There are many ways to drink beer. On 2 wheels is one of the best."
The CITY Newspaper art department was tasked with its Annual Manual assignment during a snowstorm in March. While brainstorming, we dreamed of weekends filled with sunshine and hops; texting friends to meet us at one of the local breweries, and jumping on our bikes to sample citrusy summer schwill.
So here it is: our dream course. A circuit through the city, with stops at six bike-friendly breweries. Just under 8 miles total. You don't have to start at "A" ... Just start at the brewery you live closest to -- or pedal to the furthest and wind your way back home.
Please bike responsibly and respectfully.
