Saranac and SA are my two go to commercial brews. My wife has been picking me up up Saranac's summer sampler every week when she does her shopping. Just about time for that to go away and move on to thier fall sampler packs

I just got one of their sampler packs (lager, black & tan, ipa, pa, black lager, brown) and am pretty impressed so far. Drinking the lager right now and loving it. Will have to look more into this brewery.

Pritty decent brews, they all seem to have this same background bitterness (very slight). I am absolutely in love with their Pumpkin ales and find that it's one of the best around.

Saranac brews are pretty solid. Their regular and summer sampler packs are the best! Their winter sampler is usually way over the top. I hear the Vanilla Stout in this year's winter pack was awful.

Their O'fest is good.
