SWQ Asks: Jim Rosette (Swiftwater Brewing)

The drink I am pouring the most lately is… Always beer. Right now anything hoppy or barrel aged are popular.

My LEAST favorite drink to make is… Filling a growler with a beer that is pouring foamy will try anyone’s patience.

My current personal favorite beverage is… I always love a good cup of coffee.

The conversation I am hearing most often at the bar is… People tend to talk a lot about beer and breweries when they’re here.

The best place in Rochester or South Wedge to take a date is… Swiftwater for sure. This answer might seem a little biased but we get a ton of first dates. We have a unique atmosphere that is less intimidating than a bar but not as formal as a restaurant.

When life hands me lemons… I have a few sleepless nights but try to find a silver lining.

The one thing on my bucket list that I am most eager to do is… Visit all of the National Parks in the United States.

My current obsession is… Burritos. I could eat them for breakfast lunch and dinner. Also checking the Swiftwater Instagram to see how many likes my posts get.

If you could live in a book, TV show or movie, what would it be? The Office, or Parks and Recreation.

On my days off I am usually… Watch TV, work out, walk the dog, clean the house, and other boring stuff.

The word that describes me best is… Steady.
