At my local bev center, I just saw a 24 pack "sampler" of Genesse (8x Cream Ale, 8x Genny Red, 8x Genny 12 Horse) for $9.99. It's called the "Heritage Collection." Hah!

Well I just got it back in my area (but not all the stores, just one so far). It took them more then 6 months. It got a new label, a throw-back to a historical label from years ago (I think it sucks). I hope it is the same beer, I still can't find any Genesee Bock, but I'm asking for it.

My friends dad wants me to brew a clone of this...anyone know of a solid recipe? It seems like a northeast coast thing...making it impossible to find in the southernmost point.
