New Year’s Cheers: Embracing Kansas City’s Heart

In the heart of Kansas City, Rochester Brewing and Roasting has woven a four-year tale of exceptional craft beers. As we step into a new year, we seek to grow this communal love of beer beyond our own taprooms. Join us on this exciting journey as we launch our celebratory tapping event at the iconic Taps On Main on January 5!

The Journey So Far

Our roots run deep in this city that has embraced us from the outset. Rochester’s two taprooms have been a canvas for friendships, stories and the passion that defines craft brewing in Kansas City. Now, with gratitude for the past and excitement for the future, we aim to expand our beer family, weaving tighter connections with those who’ve been part of our story.

Taps On Main Launch Friday Jan 5

Taps On Main, a beacon in the city’s beer culture, becomes our first partner as we venture into this new chapter. Together, we’re not just expanding; we’re enriching our ties with the community that has made our journey possible. As a neighbor and collaborator, Taps on Main showcases the best the brewery industry has to offer with 40+ taps of self-serve beer and a convivial atmosphere to enjoy those beers with friends.

Celebratory Launch

Join us from 5-9 p.m. January 5 at Taps On Main for more than a tapping party – it’s a celebration of shared moments. Immerse yourself in laughter, clinking glasses and the aroma of our exceptional brews. It’s a homecoming and an invitation for new friends to join our Rochester family. Our beers are the soul of Rochester Brewing. Indulge in the luscious haze of Phantastic Hazy IPA II, savor the easy drinking, yet rich complexity of Crew Brew American Brown Ale, and experience the bold awakening of our new coffee stout.

Crafting Connections

This expansion isn’t a departure but an extension of our family. We’re thrilled to embrace new communities, sharing our craft with fresh faces. Let’s raise our glasses not just to friendships formed but to those waiting to blossom. Our commitment extends beyond crafting great beers; it’s about building lasting connections.

Expansion Plans

In 2024, Rochester Brewing and Roasting plans to expand its footprint in Kansas City, with guest taps and collaborations. Our hope is to create echoes of home in every location that taps our beer. Anticipate exciting collaborations, exclusive events, and special releases throughout the year as we weave our craft into new stories.

To our current customers, thank you for helping us grow and build community. We would not be where we are without you. To those awaiting discovery, get ready to be part of something extraordinary. Join us on January 5 at Taps On Main, and let’s toast to our roots, our home and the boundless journey ahead.

Cheers to a year filled with the warmth of familiar faces and the joy of embracing new friends and enjoying Rochester beer in bars and restaurants across the city!


Rochester Brewing and Roasting is Kansas City’s first craft beer and coffee roastery under one roof. We’ve created welcoming spaces to gather for the best of both worlds – a Kansas City craft brewery and Kansas City coffee shop – all in one place. Stop by our spacious Crossroads location or check out our charming Parkville shop, located inside two vintage train cars. We’re open day and night, so come early for the coffee, stay late for the beer!
