We have several breweries in Rochester that don’t make the beer in the location they serve it.  

Right. I hear you. I guess taprooms are typically (?) connected to nearby brewing activities, but not always.

Am I the only person who didn’t have a problem with 716?  Went a couple of times. Enjoyed it each visit.  

The facility was (is) pretty sweet. My experience with the food and service was fairly mixed.

It was always an event when I went.  Driving an hour or so with family or friends, grabbing a bite and drink before the game and then watching what was at the time a decent brand of hockey.  
 

I’m fairly picky about service but as a former food service employee, I understand their plight.  That place gets bananas before and after games.  
 

A place I didn’t enjoy as much was Pearl St. Just too much of a college bar atmosphere.  Waiting 20 minutes to get to the bar for a drink, underwhelming food, much less than desirable service.

I'm glad to hear that you had good experiences there. I will add: The times when I was most disappointed at (716) was on a day/evening when there was no hockey game going on.

I have little to no use for Pearl Street. I will go there in a pinch, but I know what to expect. Shoot - even the beer they brew there isn't anything to celebrate, and I'm not overly fussy about the house craft brew.

I ate at 716 only once.

The food was mediocre, and we had a party of like 10, so I got to taste  and see a lot of stuff.

Service was fine. 

A place like that is all about the atmosphere, which is cool.  I guess that TV screen is the largest in any restaurant in America or something like that.

I'd be happy to drink beer with friends in there with various games on in the background.

More than that is not the place's forte.

Have you watched it? I don’t have high hopes for it...

Not yet.  Maybe next week.  Wanted my youngest to catch the original so we could watch as a family.  I too have low expectations but I’ve heard a few good reviews.  I cannot recall a sequel made 20+ years later that was really good.  Saw Eddie do an interview and he was really happy with the script, and casting.  New additions like Lesley Jones and Wesley Snipes are supposed to be good.

So - a taproom. That seems to imply that they'll brew on-site (?).

Actually almost assuredly they will not brew on site.  They would call it a Brewpub if they did.  The licensing they need actually changes if they don't brew on site.  It makes it a wiser choice in being able to offer a full bar as well.  They can (and will) still dominate the tap handles though I am sure of that.  They also have their own spirits so I would expect to see those featured as well.

It would make sense that they won't brew on-site -- that they'll have a retail establishment without brewing, like the ones @inkman has seen brewers use in/around Roch.

I do wonder what kind of licensure they'll be looking for. Some sort of extension of what I presume is their farm brewery license.

Which in turn prompts me to ask: How are they gonna offer a full bar in that space? That could be a sticky wicket for them. I realize that they could offer their own spirits (as well as other NYS-made spirits, I think), but the masses are going to want to order what they're accustomed to ordering.

This would suggest very wealthy people buy hockey teams to make money year over year. What has happened to the value of the Sabres franchise since Terry bought it?

What exactly in the chart suggests this?

I think wealthy people do not buy hockey teams to make money.

Looks like this has at the very least been put on hold...

For those who aren't subscribers or can't read any free articles there.....Plans to take over the 716 restaurant have been put 'on hold'.

 

I haven't seen anyone else reporting the story yet, but i'm sure that we'll get more information on this once other sites/news picks up on it.

It was the draft room that was put on hold. Southern Tier Brewing (716) is hoping to open by September, maybe even August.

Really neat spot.  Cafeteria level food though - wings were on-par with little caesers.  And the table and ordering system was insanely confusing.
