ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Genesee Brewery, one of the oldest and continually operating breweries in the United States, is asking the President to make it a Genny.

"We think it's great that the President is getting together over beers to have an important discussion. A lot of good solutions have surfaced when people can relax and talk over a couple cold ones," said Rich Lozyniak, CEO of The Genesee Brewing Company. "We just hope the next time the President has a beer, he chooses an American beer, made by American workers, at an American-owned brewery like Genesee."

The Genesee Brewery has a great American story

In its heyday, the Genesee Brewery made millions of barrels of Genesee Beer. For the past couple of decades the brewery has struggled to stay in operation against increased foreign competition. Recently, the brewery was purchased by an American private equity firm KPS that created North American Breweries -- saving nearly 400 American jobs in Upstate New York. Since then, NAB provided nearly $16 million in private investment in the brewery and its brands.

"This is the ultimate American story. We represent everyday men and women who clock in and out and take great pride in their work," said Lozyniak. "We're proud that Genny's an American beer made by great American workers."
