Introduced in 1960
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.
North American Breweries, Inc., the largest independently-owned beer company in the United States, was formed in 2009 by KPS Capital Partners, LP, a private equity fund. The company owns and operates five U.S. breweries, including the Genesee Brewery, Magic Hat Brewing Company, and Pyramid Breweries.
