Our June home.grown. Brewer of the Month: Genesee Brewing Company!
We love all things local, and one of our favorite sectors of local food is local beer. There are so many different brews, flavors, and styles, and so many stories to tell! That’s why we’re embarking on a new home.grown. adventure: to bring you fresh craft beer stories each month from our Northeast region; the best region in the United States if you ask us!
Up next: Genesee Brewing Company!
Located along the Genesee River, Genesee Brewing Company is the pride and joy of Rochester. Brewing began in 1857 when Reisky & Spies Brewery was established. But in 1878, Reisky & Spies was purchased and renamed as the Genesee Brewery.
Today, Genesee Brewing Company features a few classic, mainstay brews. Introduced in 1878, Genesee beer has become an American icon. Brewed with six-row barley malt, corn grits and hops from the Yakima Valley, this original taste will never get old. If you’re searching for a smooth, easy drinking experience, give Genesee Light a try. A tried-and-true light beer perfect for summer weather. Last but not least, the Original Genesee Cream Ale. As they say at the brewery, “Crack open summer” with this delightful vintage brew.
In addition to their classics, the brewery team always has something new in the works, like their Ruby Red Kolsch. We’ve been partnering with our home.grown. pals at Genesee for over 40 years, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
