Beer In Ads #2810: Genesee In The Jungle

Wednesday’s ad is for Genesee Beer, which was founded in Rochester, New York, originally along the Genesee River, but in 1878 they moved up into Rochester proper. Their Genesee Cream Ale, in the simple green can, was one of our go-to beers when I was in high school. Since 2009, the brewery has been part of North American Breweries. This ad, from the 1970s, is a poster done in the style of French post-impressionist painter Henri Rousseau, specifically his many naïve or primitive paintings set in the jungle.
