It’s was really great to be a part of the Rohrbach grand opening. I attended with my wife and brother in law (pictured with yours truly on the right below) There was an ecstatic crowd there and Mayor Duffy made a inspiring speech referring what a great addition to the city/public market neighborhood the brewery is and the Mayor even mentioned Rochester’s rich brewing history. This area on Railroad Street is really looking great with all the new development down there. The brewery itself is really cool with it’s timber beam construction and brick walls packed full of big shiny brewing vessels and big bags of crystal malts. There were several sampling bars including food samplings and the beer was really flowing. John Urlaub has really done a great thing for Rochester so if you didn’t make it down there yet make sure you do! Festivities continue on Saturday from 10am-4pm…Beer Brothers at the Brewery

Scientists are finally putting technology to a good use.
Introducing Chassis the beer pouring robot.


Since we are on the subject of robots Asahi Breweries just announced a special promotion for their low-malt beer. They’ve designed a R2D2 looking robot beer refrigerator and will be giving away a total of 5,000 of the robots, fully stocked with beer, to applicants selected by a lottery drawing. Unfortunately the contest seems to be for the Japanese market only . Check out the Asahi robot here.

And of course there are beer robot videos on You Tube.
