    When genny bock came out a few years ago I picked it up in MD (State line)but they havent had it since. I was looking for the Genny heritage back in SEPA (chester county) and was told the master distributor doesnt get it or Genny doesnt send it. Recently I have seen the Genny 12 Horse in stubbies but was told the regular Genny and GCA arent available in stubbies in Chester Cty.I was able to find some in lancaster county but do to the orig heritage pack not selling well they didnt get the summer heritage pack. Was also told Lancaster will have Genny Bock shortly but not the Bock stubbies. Any way, I have found that the Genny /GCA stubbies are sold in York county. So i suppose if i want the Bock stubbies i will have to make a trip.
  9. Nugget Nectar was great, but it's time for Genny Bock!

    Any sightings in SEPA?

    I think it's gotta be in 'Origlio Purgatory' because it's definitely been released. FREE THE GENNY, you guys

    I remember the days when the brewerys coming out with Bock Beer was the only beer highlight of the year, that and Ballentine IPA. We've come a long way baby.

  13. Yeah, now we have special releases of beers such as Stones Enjoy by 2-15-13 which sells out in a period of hours. What a joyous new beer scene!?!;)

    I'd love to find this in SEPA as well. I called the distro closest to me, and he just kept repeating "Genesee? No. We've got the Yuengling Bock. But...Genesee?"

    If someone happens to find this, preferably in Lancaster County, please let me know!

    According to their FB page, they had a release party on the 24th, but I have also heard it shipped on the 16th. I could have ridden my freaking bike back and forth to a few times in that period. I actually think of it more as a spring beer (March being a more traditional month for it since that's when most Bock Fests are) but I'm concerned that we somehow are getting the shaft on this one.
  17. Is this the week?
  18. It's been all over Rochester for a few weeks now. I gotta assume you guys aren't near if you can't find it.
  19. So, we know that Genny Bock is available in the Rochester, NY area. Is it only available in the Rochester area? I will be at Lake Placid next week. Does Geneses distribute to Lake Placid?

    Hello and greetings from South Philadelphia! A quick google search lead me here and, as an upstate NY native, I'm thrilled to find so many of genny bock enthusiasts in SEPA. Two years ago Global in NoLibs got a pallet in but last year no such luck. If anyone in the region finds any PLEASE report. Spring time just doesn't feel right without a mountain of these.

    Are the stubby bottles out yet? We've got lots of cans here in CNY, but I haven't seen any bottles yet.

  22. They are in Rochester obviously. At the brewery and beers of the world. Haven't seen any in cuse yet though. Seems as though the wegmans in cuse got smaller shipments this year as well.

    Has only seen bock in cans or on tap at any bars in cuse? Last year the only places I saw it were nibsys and bull and bear. It's all over on tap I rochester ($2 imperial pints at sticky lips!)
