It's no secret that the F.X. Matt Brewing Company makes some of the best beer in our country, but now a pretty reputable source has ranked them in the top 20 of the top 50 best breweries in 2015. Where exactly did Saranac fall on the list?

The Brewer's Association is a "not-for-profit trade group representing small and independent craft brewers." They have released their list of the Top 50 breweries of last year and the "Utica Club" brewers ranked pretty high on that list. In fact, the only brewery to do better then Saranac on the list was Brooklyn Brewery out of Brooklyn, NY. Did you know F.X. Matt Brewery does their bottling? They ranked at #12 on the list and not too far behind, our own hometown beer producer came in at #17. This is awesome news and a great honor for one of the greatest assets our community has to offer.
