“Fun & Interesting, whether you like beer or not”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

The brewery has been there for over 100 years and some parts of the building and decor go back to the 1880's. The tour of the brewing process and the bottle line is interesting, (bring a sweater - the brewing rooms are cold!) At the end you are rewarding with a tasting and if you don't like beer, they have Saranac sodas which are luscious. The gift shop is full of interesting steins and related history, and beers and sodas to take home.

“A must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Producing some of the finest beers and ales around...F.X. Matt gave us Saranac, and you just have to try this if you haven't already! Many specially-blended flavours for every season.

I like the tour and at the end you get a couple of drinks. I also like the gift shop.

“The home of Saranac”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

The brewery presents not only Saranac Thursday nights but sponsors the Boiler Maker 15k road race. One of the best races in the country. Come on the second week in July to see for yourself.

“Take the Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Its a basic tour that ends at the bar. The only way you will get fresher beer is to jump into the huge vats of beer. I love the Black Forest.
