Genesee Brewing Announces Winner Of Its First Ever Specialty Beer Chosen by Its Fans

For the first time ever Genesee Brewing has allowed their fans to help them pick the next specialty beer. And the fans have spoken!

Coming in November, will be the Genesee Brewing: Specialty – Citrus Pils. Genesee Brewing is saying Citrus Pils will be a cousin their beer – Ruby Red.


After months of voting, and over 10,500 Genesee fans voting – a winner has been selected in Rochester, New York.

The Genesee for ’23 Campaign promoted a crowd sourced approach to selecting and choosing (via voting) their next Specialty Beer. This was the first time Genesee Brewing put it up to vote and let their loyal fans decide the fate of the next specialty beer. So now, Citrus Pils will sit on the Genesee Specialty Beer line right alongside fan favorite Ruby Red Kolsch.

We are so excited for the community to get their hands on the beer that they helped create. As we head into winter, Citrus Pils will offer a bright and refreshing drinking experience during a frosty time of the year.

Citrus Pils

Citrus Pils is kind of like the winter cousin of Ruby Red, out of 10,500 votes, this flavor won by a land slide. Genny fans can’t seem to get enough of our citrus beers!

Named after the winning flavor profile – winter citrus – Citrus Pils is a pilsner style ale that will deliver bright flavors of tangerine and lime; pulling you out of your wintry blues and right into a warm summer’s day.

Citrus Pils will be available in 12 packs of 12 oz cans starting the first week of November (2023). Citrus Pils will be available across NY, PA, NC, VA, MA, FL, MD, NJ, VT and OH.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
