Genesee Cream Ale? To my knowledge the Genesee Brewing Company has only made one type... "Cream Ale" for nearly 48 years. I have never heard of "Falling Water".

I was under the impression from talking with people 8-10 years ago from Rochester that after all most 100 years that Genesee Brewing Company went out of business and the former employees got together and renamed it "Falling Water's Brewing Co." They still make some of the old Genesse product but also came up with their own special brews depending on the time of the year. I know when I lived in Rochester back in the early 70's they would have several special brews in the Fall. And their was a special "Dark Cream Ale that was produced for the fall.... Please correct me if this information is incorrect on the new name.......

Forgive my ignorance, as someone else mentioned it is now "High Falls" brewing but both that and the "Genesee Brewing Company" are both used in conversation as I am testament. However I did not know about the varieties of Cream Ale, and it makes me very upset that they no longer exist! I was not alive during the period you speak of!

Smile Genesse Beer

You where correct on the Cream Ale.... Here's a list. I was thinking of the Special Bock........

Portfolio of Brews
Genesee Beer. Fully kraeusened to produce carbonation naturally for a clean, smooth taste, "Genny" is brewed with six-row barley malt, corn grits, hops from the Yakima Valley and Genesee's exclusive botton-fermenting yeast. Genesee Beer was introduced in 1878.

http://www.history.rochester.edu/class/beer/genny.htm

The Bock was in the spring not the fall...... Old age and many years away from the area.......

Check out this amazing film from 1963: Rochester: A City of Quality. Note the great voice of Ken Nordine.

One thing particularly interesting is an allusion to what became the reason for the downfall of Midtown Plaza and downtown Rochester - the fact that Monroe Co. moved its soul, money, and moral responsibility out to the suburbs very early, and that Midtown was an attempt to replicate suburban aesthetics in the city. Just 30 years later, McCurdy's and B. Foreman were gone and Midtown was a zombie. Monroe County was doomed to be a doughnut. Rochester never wanted to be a city.

Let's hope Paetec gets some new spirit in town with their project. But I continue to be pessimistic because of the ingrained suburban mentality - and the legal restrictions - of Monroe Co.
