'Tis the season for holiday and winter brews, and my friends at the F.X. Matt Brewing Company have just debuted a brand new winter seasonal beer...Saranac Long John Lager. I've tried it and give it two thumbs up! Here's more.

According to saranac.com:

"Saranac Long John Lager

Availability: 6 packs, 12 packs, Draught, 12 Beers of Winter

Long John Lager is a robust yet easygoing Dunkel Lager. The caramelized malty sweetness is nicely balanced by a toasted nuttiness that’ll surely light up your taste buds on a winter day.


Dunkel Lager

MALTS: Pilsener, Munich, Caramunich, Carafa

HOPS: Hallertauer Mittelfrueh

ABV: 5.5%


Hearty fare, including stews and roasted meats, barbecue, and sausages"

As I mentioned, I tried this new seasonal Saranac and thought it was exceptional. It's got a good malty flavor and not as hoppy as some brews! I'm sure it will be a new winter favorite. Cheers!
