Greg McShea

I've got a long connection to the Mohawk Valley, having attended Utica schools and graduating from Utica College with a B.S. Degree in Public Relations. I've hosted a number of radio programs, and my voice has been heard on the local airwaves through the years. When I'm not broadcasting, I enjoy reading science publications and sci-fi novels, traveling to some favorite vacation spots, and anything "Star Trek". I am a native of the Utica area and have many friends and family members in the area.

Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest Beer Now Available [VIDEO]

Another Octoberfest beer is now available in central New York...Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest, from the Leinenkugel Brewing Company of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I still don't know why some breweries call their fall brew Oktoberfest with a "k" or Octoberfest with a "C". The brewer's with the "k" probably think it looks more German.
