Cream Ale is a uniquely American style. Sure, the American IPA might be the envy of the world’s brewing community, but it didn’t start in the United States. Let’s talk about one of the most well-known – Genesee Cream Ale. First introduced in 1960, “Genny Cream” might be the most recognizable for the style out there.
Here’s something you didn’t expect. A dry-hopped edition the decades-old cream ale, a collaboration with New York’s Other Half Brewing.
Other Half’s fame was born in New York City. As far as we know, the lines for Other Half beers are pretty much a standard, 24 hours a day. The brewery is in the process of opening a new 20-line taproom in Rochester, New York and ahead of they have teamed up with Genesee Brewery.
Cream Ale now has a sibling, Dream Ale. Using the classic Genesee Cream Ale recipe, the brewing teams added oats and dry-hopped it with a “massive dose” of Citra hops.
We are huge fans of the all-time NY classic Cream Ale and couldn’t imagine a better way to pay respect to the historic brewing traditions of Rochester while putting an OH twist on an all-time favorite recipe. – Other Half Brewing
