Is this as good as it was back in the late 60's early 70's? A local supermarket has 30 pack/cans for ~ $13. Could be a nice hot weather brew?

I love Genesee Cream Ale ....

My clone of it was a AHA BIG BREW recipe in 2000. That was a great privilege

I think this beer has stayed pretty much the same over the years...

Thanx , Skotrat. I may have to scale the recipe back some, my equipment isn't as big as yours!

I truly enjoy a "Genny Screamer" as well. It was the first beer I bought an entire case of. I'd bought six-packs of others before, but this was a big deal to me, 30 years ago.
FWIW, I later learned I liked Utica Club Cream Ale better, but it's looooooonnnnggg gone.

I have enjoyed several $13 30-packs since I moved to the DC area last fall. Worth every penny.

My local package store was out last week. Said they were getting more in. Good lawnmower beer for the summer heat. And in cans so it can be river beer too.

Gennie Cream is my drift boat beer this summer. My son drank a Coors after several Gennie Creams and exclaimed that Coors tasted like water compared to Gennie Cream. Hell yeah!

I like Little Kings slightly better than Genny Cream Ale, but both are good summer refreshers.

AH, Schoenling's Little Kings.

I cut my beer teeth on LK's when I was in college in Cincinnati in the early 70's. We could drive down the hill to the brewery and pick up a keg

"Little Kings" in a keg, vicious stuff - a great way to get a huge hangover. And no skunking from the green bottles!

I used to smuggle "little kings" into the movie theatre. I loved those little bottles; you could hide them just about anywhere. I also loved the quarts - the "Big King". A one stop, 65 cent beer buzz.

Steve, that takes me back to my salad days when a local college bar had "GIQ night" (giant imperial quart, aka 40 US oz.) on Tuesdays for 50 cents each. Or even better, when I lived in Buffalo there was a bar popular with WW II vets that had 10 oz. glasses (of Koch's, brewed in Dunkirk, NY) for 10 cents until 4:00 pm. You could get a lot of buzz for a buck back then.
