Saranac Adirondack Lager ( Utica, NY )

Saranac Adirondack Amber is a classic German amber lager which has a perfect balance of caramel malt sweetness and hop bitterness. It is characterized by a rich, amber color and medium body. This was the original Saranac beer.

The origins of this company are in Sapporo, Hokkaido during the Meiji period, where the Hokkaido Development Commission (Kaitakushi) established many businesses. Seibei Nakagawa, a German-trained brewer, became the first brewmaster of the Kaitakushi Brewery in June 1876, and the first Sapporo Lager was produced at that time. Privatized in 1886, the Sapporo brewery became the centerpiece for the Sapporo Beer Company.
