What we're drinking tonight: Genesee Cream Ale

First, as far as we know, Genesee Cream Ale is not available for sale in the Beermingham area.

Second, we are fully aware Genesee Cream Ale isn't on par with the stuff previously featured on this blog. But BeerAdvocate does give it an overall C grade.

But a good friend gave us a couple of cans of Cream Ale from a batch someone brought him from up north. This friend of ours says he drank this stuff when he was younger and living above the Mason-Dixon. He, too, knows it's not the best brew you can buy, but sometimes memories are stronger than hops. And at $12 for a pack of 30, it's at least as good as PBR or Budweiser.

We just thought Beermingham readers would enjoy seeing a beer label not readily available in Alabama. Now for a bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale to flush out the metallic taste.
