Rochester’s ghouls and goblins had a hauntingly good time at CB Craft Brewers for Yelp’s Boos and Brews Elite Event. As one of Rochester’s first craft brewers, CBs got their start 16 years ago and are continuing to push out quality small batch custom brews.
Elites took part in a beer sampling, having a chance to sip their pick of CB’s 20+ options on tap. The in-house restaurant, the Pint & Goblet Tavern also set out platters of food for the guests to fill their bellies. They snacked on quesadillas, cheese and charcuterie a.k.a. the Ploughman’s Platter, chili and stew, among other hearty eats. Marissa N had the “turkey Reuben, her “fave bite o’ the night… she could be a sauerkraut sucking vampire.”
Beyond just sipping the beer, the Elites got the lowdown on how the brews are concocted behind closed doors. Compared to past brewery tours, Katie O’s “guide was really knowledgeable and able to answer tons of questions.” Next project for the Elites: Home brewing.
Best costume went to the seriously crafty costumer, Marissa N, for her beer cooler getup. Even Kate B was impressed by the costume, “complete with beer-bottle-cap earrings! Yelpers sure do know how to throw a party.”
Thanks to Mike, Suzanne and everybody at CBs for a beautiful fall night in the country, and here’s to our lovely photographer, Lauren McLaughlin.
Until next time – See You On Yelp!
