Legacy IPA
Our founder’s century-old IPA recipe is full flavored, hop forward and blends our breweries past and present. We use lighter malts which allows the hop flavor to shine through. We’re proud to share our legacy of great beers.

Pale Ale


Why this beer is a true Pale Ale …

This beer was brewed to be the flagship Saranac beer. The recipe is a true English Pale Ale – rich and fruity, yet finishes crisp. It embodies our brewing philosophy to brew distinctive and drinkable beers.

 

Our exclusive new Hop Infusion Process maximizes hop-to-beer exposure, resulting in a fresher taste that recently took home gold in its first competition post-HIP. Taste the difference for yourself.

Legacy IPA


When our founder began brewing back in 1888 a few things were different, like the significantly lighter grains he used in his first IPA (we agree – he sure was ahead of his time brewing IPAs back then).

 

The lighter grains resulted in a noticeably lighter color in the beer, which allows the hop flavor to shine through. We’ve re-crafted his original creation, staying true to his technique, but we’ve modernized the recipe with the most innovative hops available today.

 

We’re proud to share over 125 years of brewing expertise with you: our Legacy IPA.

Gen IV


Gen IV is a hop-forward Session IPA which embodies four generations of Matt Family brewing – Nick and Fred helped pilot brew the winning recipe so it must run in their blood. We’ve used Amarillo and Citra hops to deliver big tropical and citrus aroma and flavor, and wheat malt for a sturdy backbone to hold onto more hop character without driving up the ABV.

 

How did we do it? Well, we wanted to pack an uncanny amount of hops into this beer so we used White IPA which beer experts consider one of the best in craft. And we wanted to pack an uncanny amount of hops into this beer so we used our Gas Chromatograph to measure essential oil concentrations of hops so we precisely selected Amarillo and Citra to deliver the best aroma and flavor. We’ve taken our learnings and brewed a flavorful and easy drinking delight. Enjoy!


Brewer’s Notes

Style: Session IPA
Food Pairings: Salads, Seafood, Mexican
Cheese Pairings: Brick, Chevre, Camembert
Malts: Pale, Wheat, Munich, Carapils
