Saranac Pale Ale, Adirondack Lager Take Gold at 2013 United States Open Beer Championship


Saranac Brewing’s Pale Ale and Adirondack Lager were each awarded gold medals in the 2013 United States Open Beer Championship this week in Atlanta.

Judges from England, Canada and the United States evaluated more than 2,500 beers in 68 categories from breweries around the world. They gave the gold to Saranac in the English Pale Ale and Marzen/Oktoberfest categories.

Pale Ale is Saranac’s flagship brew that is rich and fruity with a crisp finish. The brewery recently updated the brewing process for this classic favorite, using their new “Hop Infusion Process” which maximized beer to hop exposure for a fresher taste. Pair it with burgers, bread pudding and cheddar cheese.

The Adirondack Lager defeated the nationally-popular Sam Adams Octoberfest, which finished with bronze behind 456 by Neustadt Brewing. Adirondack Lager is Saranac’s original award-winning beer brewed in the German Lager tradition using Noble hops. Hop bitterness is balanced with caramel malt sweetness, creating the ultimate “round” beer. Pair it with barbecue, sausage and peppers and jack or white cheddar cheese.

“These two gold medals for our core beers just reinforce why we’re so excited about our 125th anniversary celebration packs,” said president Fred Matt. “We’ve always focused on making quality beers that our consumers will choose over anything else – which is exactly what the judges did.”
