Saranac Launches Locally Hopped Beer
As a former tour guide, I take a keen interest in the new products and activities going on at the F.X. Matt Brewing Company. (Like I’ve always said, beer is thicker than water). On August 28th, the brewery along with friends of Saranac participated in a local hop picking event, and then brewed a special Saranac draft using the local ingredients.
According to saranac.com:
Saranac Wet IPA is a specially brewed beer made with locally grown New York State Heirloom and Cascade hops. The normal brewing process uses dried hops in the recipe, but this beer consists of “wet hops”, or fresh hops that are added to the brew within 24 hours after picking. The result, a very “hoppy” aroma and fresh taste.
Saranac Wet IPA is available on draft only, and to search for locations in your area, just go to their website. Cheers!
