That sounds like the place. I was expecting a light pumpkin taste but it was a dark bold taste. Not really pumpkin taste

Pumpkinhead by Shipyard brewery isn't bad. Not a super heavy beer but a spicy aftertaste. Not into all the craft beers as much but haven't really met a beer I didn't like.

To drink, I prefer Genny "cream ale" for lunch, "light" for supper, and "12-horse" for special occasions. For cooking, plain "red-label" Genny. By pure coincidence, I just posted this picture on another thread in the taxidermy section, but you can see the tap-handles for three of them on the front the "Beer-fridge" behind our bar.

You forgot two of my favorites: Genny with tomato juice (for breakfast) & Genny in the shower (duh). I don't drink anymore, but when I did, it was Genny all the way. People knock it, not sure why. Maybe just because it's the local guy. My sister lives out west, & says people pay top buck for a 6 pack of it. I've heard the same from people in the south. I loved Genny! All of it! (Way too much).

Support the local man!

There's not enough Genny in the world to get me to watch another minute of this terrible football game. Goodnight

You haven't LIVED until you've experienced a Genny Cream Ale fart in a snowmobile suit.

 

I've emptied my share of Genny cans over the last 50 years...For quite a few years now, they have been mostly Genny Light.

 

However, in the last few months I have found myself buying Labatt's Blue Light more often.

 

Must be the onset of dementia... Now what was I talking about ?

Used to skip high school to fish. Warm Genny scream ale pounders in the cardboard box. By late afternoon someone was eating the bait and biting heads off the stupid sunfish. Oh wait , bottle of Jack contributed to that too

We had a seasonal routine in the mid-70's: Schlitz in the winter because a friend of ours worked for the local distributor after construction season, and Rolling Rock during the summer because the general store in Port Gibson had returnable long-necks for about 3 1/2 bucks a case.

Genny was reserved for spring smelting trips with the dads, and for other special occasions.

Milk Stout. Was actually pretty good. Coincidentally, matches my wife's iPhone and Fitbit.

PBR is still very popular at the American Legion Post that I belong to.

Remember Rhiengold ? When I was serving aboard a USN Destroyer home ported at Brooklyn Naval yard, every neighborhood bar had Rhiengold and Schaeffer's on tap, usually for about 20 cents a glass.

In the days between high school and the Navy, a best buddy and I used to buy a couple 6 packs of Piels pounders for 99cents a 6 pack and go sit on the banks of the Canisteo River and drink beer and fish for carp. He died from machinegun fire while walking point on a patrol in Vietnam in March, 1971. I was one of his pallbearers just one month before I reported for active duty in April 1971.

Schmidts, Black label, Iroquois....And don't forget STEGMAIR, 3 quarts for $1.00...

What about Schlitz, Lowenbrau, and Meister Brau?

 

Ack, Black Label and PBR. I would rather drink Milwaukee's Best.

I have a vintage Genny red eye can on the desk right beside my computer. Tin bottom, tin body with a seam up the side, aluminum top and a removable throw away aluminum pull tab. It says GENESEE BEER cold aged, on the outside of the can.

Does Genny still make that bock stuff? That was some nasty beer. Didn't that can have a sheep on it?
