I’ve been a fan of Saranac beer for a long time. It’s good brew and the company is topnotch (they once shipped a case of free beer to a friend of mine who had written them a letter asking where to find a certain style for his wedding…and personalized it by wishing him well at the wedding.
Unfortunately, the brewery took a hit somewhat recently. A fire destroyed its canning building. So, it’s good to see them back up and running:
The news is also good about this beer. I picked up a six at the Alex Bay Mart the other week for a pittance – made more pittanced by the wave through by the lad at the border. This beer pours a orange-chestnut with a white rim. Medium bodied with dark cherry and vanilla malt cut by tobacco hops. I had the occasion last weekend to consider this brew with a wee dram of decent bourbon, Woodford Reserve and the combo was a natural. Plenty of BAer respect.”

Support a great beer maker and purchase some Saranac Black Diamond Bock this weekend.
