Genesee Cream Ale is a cold fermented, alcohlic beverage produced by the Genesee Brewing Company in Rochester, NY. It is a light bodied ale. It was first introduced in late 1960. Genesee's brewmasters take an extra step of kräusening, a process in which finished beer is primed for carbonation with wort instead of sugar.

Genesee Cream Ale won gold medals in 1990 and 1991, silver medals in 1987, 1988, 1993, 1994 and 2005, and bronze medals in 1995, 2002, and 2004 at the Great American Beer Festival.[1]

The brewery was known as High Falls Brewing Company from 2000 to 2009.

According to urban legend, consuming large quantities of Genesee Cream Ale results in severe flatulence often colloquially referred to as "Genny screamers."
