Damn,
I was just in PA last weekend to visit my mommy and while i was there I had some of that Gennesee(sp?) Creme Ale. Does anybody know where I can get that in Boston, if they even distribute to Eastern MA. You'd think they would as I believe it's brewed in New York.

Genny is brewed in Rochester, NY right on the Genessee river. It is pretty much a western NY cheap local brew (we rarely get it in NYC). My apartment in Rochester used to be on the opposite bank from the genesee brewery, loved that fermenting yeast smell. Once when drunk I tried to swim the genesee river in the middle of december....stupid.

Regular Genney tastes like liquid wonder bread which suffice to say is awful (I mean worse than beast awful), never had the creme ale. The Genessee brewery is also the NY regional distributor for Honey Brown Ale which I believe is brewed in boston, so I am going to go out on a limb and say anywhere you can find honey brown should have Genesee beer.

geets didn't mention that they have it on draught at clubmans in the city. not many patrons order it though. it is rude.

I remember my dad drinking Genesee when I was a kid. And Naragansett beer. Smart enough to have never drank it myself, but I had cousins who drank it by the case. Lone Star is the same in TX. And Stroh's used to be the same here. Beers so bad the rest of the country should be glad they remain regional. Micro-breweries are sort of the new equivalent, but fashionable. Anyone outside the midwest ever heard of Kalamazoo Brewing? My wife loves a beer they brew called Oberon (the beer formerly known as Solsun).

eh, in austin lone star is known as the national beer of texas and it's about the only damn thing you can drink when the heat index says a hundred and twenty with 90% humidity. anything heavier is like drinking molten lead.

ever had honey brown out of a keg? tastes like banana beer, not a good thing...

utica club brewery is in utica. Genesee is in Rochester, it is named because the Genesee river passes right through the center of the city.

I just had two pints tonight

I had two pints of Bally ale tonight, just don't tell anyone. Cheap and good. Portland has two local brewerys Shipyard and Geary's. Both good. One of them makes Old Thumper. Thats good and heavy duty. Ballantine Ale was the preferred drink of my Aunt Catherine but thats another story.
Ballantine ale is easy to find here in Maine. I used to really like the narragansett Bock beer as well as the regular 'Gansett in bar botles when I lived in jamaica plain (thats Boston)
Shouldn't I have something better to do than get into this thread?

My in-laws own my summer cottage in Noblesboro. They always have plenty of both in the 'fridge when we arrive. It's not summer for my wife until she has a Geary's on the deck, looking out over the lake. Gritty's is also good Portland beer, especially the Black Fly stout. It's the next best thing to a Guinness.

I'll be checking local distributors this weekend.

BTW there was a loverly CB750 with a solo seat, pods, clean cases and shockingly stock bars. On South street by the Bus station, anyone?
