RocLinks 1/3/15

This article was scraped from Rochester Subway. This is a blog about Rochester history and urbanism has not been published since 2017. The current owners are now publishing link spam which made me want to preserve this history.. The original article was published January 01, 2015 and can be found here.

From local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week...

D&C reports

that local beer maker Three Heads Brewing (Honeoye Falls) is working to set up its own beer-making operation in Rochester's Neighborhood Of The Arts. Rumors are swirling that plans are already being reviewed by the City and the development will include a tasting room. That would automatically make     this other new development across the street    a bit more attractive to anyone who enjoys a good brew.
