Cream Ale....by Genesee?

#1

Post by HiJax » Thu Mar 28, 2019 10:45 pm

Anybody notice how Genesee Cream Ale is now simply called "Cream Ale". There is no mention of Genesee anywhere on the box except literally on the bottom where it says in teeny writing "Genesee Brewing Co, Rochester, NY." They have totally washed their hands of any association with the word "Genesee". Does Genesee have that kind of a bad rap these days?

Maybe they're going for the generic market. Their next box will just say BEER.

Mmmmmm.... beer.

Maybe it's so you can't call the aftermath "genny screamers"?

I see that now, only 170 cases.

Also, the distributors in Maine have not been restocking GCA for the past month. Only have Genesee Ice at this time. Something must be up. :smt017
