Another entry in my occasional series of posts about variety 12-packs…
When is a 12-pack not a 12-pack? When it’s a “Brewer’s Dozen” of Saranac beers.
To help celebrate their 125th anniversary, the brewers of Saranac invited customers to have a pint “on the house.” How? They actually stuck an extra tall boy can into their 12-pack box.
Saranac Legacy IPA was inspired by the brewery’s original recipe for one of the first American IPAs. It features a blend of historic, traditional, and innovative hops for an amazing aroma and full-bodied flavor (60 IBUs, 6.5% ABV).
The 12 pack also included:
- Saranac Pale Ale, a crisp, classic English Pale Ale (32 IBUs, 5.5% ABV).
- Saranac White IPA, a Belgian White aggressively hopped with with Citra hops for a citrusy character (50 IBUs, 6.0% ABV).
- Saranac Black Forest, don’t let the color fool you — this German-Style Schwarzbier beer is an easy drinker (5.3% ABV).
- Saranac Adirondack Lager, brewed in the German Lager tradition using Noble hops (5.5% ABV)
F.X. Matt Brewing Company in Utica, New York brews the Saranac line of beers. Congrats to the brewery on 125 years of brewing!
