Honey Brown Lager Joins Genesee Specialty Line

Sick of Pumpkin? Sip on Honey Brown

Genesee Brewing Rebrands and Relaunches Honey Brown Lager Just in Time for Fall

Rochester, NY – Are you sick of pumpkin but not yet ready to commit to gingerbread? Introducing Honey Brown Lager, a new kind of fall favorite.

A gold award winner at the World Beer Cup, Honey Brown lager is brewed with pure clover honey with no preservative or artificial flavors and has 4.5 percent alcohol-by-volume. It has a golden color and a distinct, subtle sweetness, making it the perfect addition to your apple picking adventures and game day celebrations.

“We love this time of year and all the fun fall festivities, but we’re tired of pumpkin everything, so we’re offering a new fall option: Honey Brown,” said Inga Grotte-Ebbs, Genesee brand director. “Made with a hint of pure Manitoba White Clover honey, Honey Brown has a unique and refreshing taste profile perfect for the season.”

First introduced in 1994, The Original Honey Brown lager, known for its subtle, sweet taste, became an overnight success in the late 90s. Now more than a quarter century later, the Genesee Brewery will relaunch the iconic beer, this time under its brewery label: Genesee Specialty.

Honey Brown is available now in a variety of packaging options.
