Genesee Cans for Cans and Scotch Ale Trio
1:00 PM13:00

Genesee Cans for Cans and Scotch Ale Trio

Genesee Cans for Cans (canned good drive): Bring in a can and get a Genny for a buck. 

We'll also be tapping Genesse Scotch Ale Trio and two fan favorites!

SCOTCH ALE: A rich and malty, deep-garnet colored ale with a surprisingly smooth body.

DARK CHOCOLATE SCOTCH ALE: A full-bodied Scotch Ale elegant and complex with decadent flavors and aromas from bittersweet Hedonist Artisan Chocolates 72% Dark Chocolate.

TOASTED ALMOND SCOTCH ALE: The result of adding toasted almonds to their flagship Scotch Ale. Rich, full-bodied ale you know and love, but with a slightly sweet, nutty flavor that goes down smooth, satisfying to the last sip.

CREAM ALE: The goal was simple: a beer with the flavor of an ale and the smoothness of a lager. That's how Genesee Cream Ale (the brainchild of this brewery) became an American original. Today, every batch of Cream Ale is skillfully brewed to achieve its smooth character and a remarkably creamy white head worthy of its name.

BOCK: Genessee's take on the 16th century German legend has turned out to be a legend in its own right. For every spring since 1951, Genessee has carefully crafted and lagered Genesee Bock Beer. The result is an exceptionally hearty, full-flavored beer with a slight malty finish—and a perfect way to celebrate the snow melt.
