Rochester's Best Beer in America's Best Can
"Our take on the 16th century German legend has turned out to be a legend in its own right," says the brewery of its Genesee Bock Beer. "For every spring since 1951, our brewery has carefully crafted and lagered Genesee Bock Beer. The result is an exceptionally hearty, full-flavored beer with a slight malty finish—and a perfect way to celebrate the snow melt."
Bock "is historically associated with special occasions, often religious festivals such as Christmas, Easter or Lent," and has "a long history of being brewed and consumed by Bavarian monks as a source of nutrition during times of fasting."
