Matt’s is a brand from F.X. Matt Brewing, also the brewer of Utica Club,Fort Schuyler,and other contract brews.
Genesee is still independent, last word I heard it was being purchased by the workers.
There is also a western NY cheap brew known as Fred Koch’s Golden Anniversary beer out of Dunkirk,NY-about $2.50 a six pack.
"Little King’s" are out of Cincinnati,OH. 7 oz.’ers
Truckers used to bring in cases of the "original" Stroh’s from Detroit- in the 80’s every bit as good as the original Coors, then came the buyout by Schlitz, and the quality and mystique was never the same, and the brand died out.
