Saranac summer comes to a close, but autumn is beautiful in the Adirondacks

It’s been a busy summer for Saranac, with the ever-popular Saranac Thursdays and a robust schedule of live music at the brewery. But the season has simmered down, and autumn has arrived, bringing with it colorful foliage and seasonal offerings.  Here’s a peek at what’s available to you on supermarket shelves.

Each season Saranac throws together a new 12-pack offering.  You probably have already seen 12 Beers A Falling at the store for a couple of weeks now.  Inside the box:

  • Irish Red Ale
  • India Pale Ale
  • Black Forest
  • Pumpkin Ale
  • Octoberfest
  • Caramel Porter

This is a solid offering and definitely worth picking up.  You can find more on the 12 Beers A Falling at the Saranac site

Pumpkin Ale

You probably noticed this listed above for the 12-pack. A few years ago, I hadn’t even tried a pumpkin ale.  Now there seems to be a mini-explosion of craft brewers offering them.  Saranac’s is pretty good and it won’t break your bank.  It’s available in a six-pack, but if you’re unsure, get the 12 Beers A Falling before you commit to more.

Octoberfest

It’s October and drinking Octoberfest just makes sense.  Saranac describes their Octoberfest as a medium bodied, copper lager with a rich, malty taste balanced by Saaz and Tettnang hops.  Available in 12 Beers A Falling or in a six-pack.

Saranac Blog

A lot of breweries start blogs and other “faddish” Web presences, ultimately drying up from a lack of content and updates over time.  Cheers to the Saranac blog, which has been fairly consistent in offering new material, hopefully a continuing trend.  The latest entry is a video tasting with Nick and Fred Matt of the FX Matt Brewery as they sample from 12 Beers A Falling.
