The first Saranac beer that I tried was their Black & Tan – I was on a “real” black & tan kick so I thought I’d give it a try… pretty impressive. It’s awesome that a brewery has a bunch of different styles of beers that are all pretty good. From their Pale Ale to the Black Forest and Brown Ale – I can’t complain about any of them… and their seasonals, like the Belgian Ale and Vanilla Porter are stellar! Just recently I learned that they even make non-alcoholic sodas: Root Beer, Black Cherry and even Orange Cream – yum!
If you haven’t tried a Saranac, pick up their mixed pack – there’s something for every taste bud!
My husband says this cap probably came from an Old Dominion Millennium Barley Wine, which he says is delicious…. but I’d like to imagine that I saved it from 5 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. Obviously at the time, I wasn’t drinking “regular” beer (although I did crave it), so I became a root beer addict. If you weren’t aware, Old Dominion Brewing makes some superior root beer and ginger ale – and this pregnant woman probably kept their root beer line a flowing! A really like that it comes in a glass bottle, and it has a “bite” that most root beers lacks, not to mention that it’s oh so refreshing. This dreamy drink is also free of caffeine and high-fructose corn syrup!
If you haven’t tried one of these, you really haven’t had a true root beer… so what are you waiting for??
