We haven’t been able to get Mississippi Mud for awhile, a Black and Tan beer which came in a cute brown jug with a handle. (Little brown jug, how I love thee!) So my rep told me about Saranac 6 packs and we brought them in. Everyone who has tried it really likes it. It is a dark brown beer with a bitter twang that many people find pleasant and refreshing.
Here are the tasting notes from Saranac Black and Tan.
A beer lover’s dream! This classic Irish stout and amber lager blend is malty, yet pleasantly bitter with many complex flavor notes. Look for a deep brown-black color and full-body.

Saranac is family owned by Matt Brewing Company in the Adirondacks. Founded in 1888 by German-born immigrant Francis Xavier Matt, or F.X. as he liked to be called. 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.
