Yelp put out a list of the best 50 Whiskey Bars in America and Rochester's Half Barrel Bar and Kitchen came it at number 41 which is quite the accomplishment.

In my opinion, the best part about the Half Barrel is the staff. They're cool to everyone. If you're a rookie whiskey drinker, they'll hold your hand and help you find something that you like. They take good care of connoisseurs too with an impressive drink menu.

Yelp explains how the list was compiled: "This is a list of the best whiskey bars in the U.S. according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the bars category with a large concentration of reviews mentioning “whiskey,” then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning “whiskey.” We included only two businesses per state for geographic diversity."
