Description (ca. 1921):

A beer locally brewed in Rochester by the Genesee Brewing Company. The Genesee Brewing Company was founded in 1878 and operates out of Rochester, New York. Contains a 4.5% alcohol volume. At this time, it was illegally being distributed, as Prohibition was in place.

The Genesee beer was in direct competition with the smuggled whiskey coming from the north. The beer was sold at various places in Rochester, conflicting with the Canadians' imported product. Genesse Beer was one of the local competitors with the rum-runners from Canada.
