Join your fellow vmuggers for a night out with Rochester VMUG and Splunk. The November vBeer social event will be held on November 17th from 5:30 pm - until we go home at the Roc Brewing Co. We will be touring the brewery and drinking some great local beers.
Roc Brewing Co., LLC in 2011 was one of the first brewery to hit the growing Rochester brewing scene and in June of 2016 celebrated its five year anniversary. Roc's ferociously loyal following of drinkers led it to begin canning its beers in 2015, achieving distribution throughout Rochester and Western New York. The brewery's journey started in 2011, the product of Rochester Institute of Technology classmates Jon Mervine and Chris Spinelli. They began homebrewing together before finally going all in on a brewery. The duo were accepted into Samuel Adams' Brewing the American Dream program. It was not only an opportunity to learn from the nation's pioneering craft brewery and receive coaching from owner Jim Koch, but provided the duo a loan to launch Roc Brewing.

We had a great turnout to our October event. We gave away some beer mugs from both VMUG and Tintri and Tintri gave away a $100.00 gift card.
The atmosphere at Victoire was nice with some good beer selections and food. We had duck wings which were out of this world good along with pretzels with cheese dip and so much more. This was by far one of our best turnouts for the vBeer events.

We had a great turnout and a lot of fun hanging out at Swillburger with Palo Alto. Swillburger is a spinoff of Dave & Busters but more retro. The beer selection was excellent and there was plenty of it. I had the Smuttynose Ol' Grundy Humpe Barleywine which although the name is long the beer was very tasty. Swillburger converted an old church into this exciting new place and did a great job. They have good burgers along with plenty of sides to choose from. I look forward to my next visit.
