Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale Brewed by the Matt Brewing - Utica, NY

Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale Brewed by the Matt Brewing Company Utica, New York  

Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale is a traidtional blonde ale with a kick of juicy blueberry. You'll notice a light golden haze from wheat malt and oats and a low hop bitterness, which really shows off the fruit. With a medium-light body and fresh blueberry flavor, we're sure we've captured refreshment in a bottle! Malt: 2 Row, wheat malt and oats. Hops: Saaz. ABV:5.0%. IBUs: 18

Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Pours a hazy light golden, clear color. Lots of little bubbles rising up from the bottom. Relatively aggressive pour leads to a big 2 finger head that sticks around and leaves sticky lacing all the way down the glass.

Aroma: Malty nose hits first, some hoppy bitter hits next, biscuity nose follows next, followed by a nice little whiff of blueberry. It's not an incredible smelling beer but it's definitely nice.

Taste: Follows the nose, good malt backbone, nice lingering hop bitterness and a really nice little blueberry twist comes in and out of the taste on this.

Mouthfeel: Creamy feel, perfectly carbonated.

Overall: Really solid beer. Easy drinker, nice blueberry flavor. Can see myself putting a bunch of these away on a hot summer day or during a camping trip.

F.X. Matt Going Green - NBR Review 
FX Matt Brewing, a New York-based family-owned brewery at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in Utica, is all set to kick off its $4m brewery expansion.

The environmentally-friendly expansion will include installation of five 35ft long anaerobic digester tanks from Philadelphia, which will break down waste materials into methane and other gases for use in the production of electricity and heat.

The brewery will use the reproduced energy created from new anaerobic digester to clean 80-90% of the brewery's waste water. The energy produced will also be useful for the Utica district and its Varick Street area.

FX Matt Brewing chairman and CEO Nick Matt told Your News Now that they use some geothermal heating, they do a lot of recycling, they capture CO2 from the fermentation and use it in the beers and they do a lot of things to try to be green.

Matt Brewing Company
The Matt Brewing Company was founded in 1888 by German-born immigrant Francis Xavier Matt, or F.X. as he liked to be called. After Prohibition, F.X., then 74, was joined by his sons Walter and Frank. Walter Matt, who served as company president until 1980, is credited with increasing sales and many building renovations, including the model brewhouse and Tour Center.

Today, under the leadership of the third and fourth generations of the Matt family, the brewery still crafts beer to the exacting standards set forth over a century ago.

True to their German brewing heritage, the Matt Brewery Company has earned its reputation as one of the country's most respected brewers of specialty beers. In each bottle of Saranac, you'll find a commitment to quality and patient attention to detail that is the signature of the Matt Brewing Company.
