As summer winds down, Genesee Brewery is priming its fans for the cozy flavors of fall, with the impending release of two anticipated brews: the familiar Oktoberfest and the relatively recent Cran Orange Kellerbier.
Both beers are set to grace northeast shelves next week. The Oktoberfest is an old favorite, while the Cran Orange, first launched within the last half-decade, stands as the autumnal answer to the brewery’s Kolsch.
While the Oktoberfest boasts deep-golden hues and a malt-centric flavor profile enhanced by hints of herbal noble hops, the Cran Orange Kellerbier offers a modern take on the traditionally aged “cellar beer.” First introduced in 2021, this brew marries Genesee’s German legacy with the fresh zing of cranberry and orange, resulting in a lager that’s both refreshing and light. As the brewery rides the wave of seasonal releases, they’re also calling on their fans to have their say. Genesee encourages enthusiasts to voice their thoughts on the fall lineup using the hashtag #gennyfallrant on social media platforms.
