Rochester Brewing & Coffee Co.

Beer meets coffee at Rochester Brewing & Roasting Co. (2129 Washington St.). The West Crossroads business is a brewery, roastery, and event space owned by four beverage-loving friends who decided to bring their passions together under one roof. The name is a throwback to Rochester Brewery, which operated in the same neighborhood in the late 1800s before merging with two other local breweries to create the Kansas City Brewing Co, but the concept of roasting specialty coffee and brewing beer in the same facility is one that’s new to Kansas City, according to the owners. From 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Rochester functions as a coffee shop, while in the evenings it will transition into a boozier drinking destination as beer production ramps up.
