Saranac 12 Beers of Winter

Saranac recently released their 12 Beers of Winter pack. Saranac releases a different 12 pack each season with each box featuring two of each of the six different beers. Saranac usually uses this mixed pack to introduce new beers and this years winter version features four new beers. The Saranac Winter Lager, Saranac Black Lager, Saranac Rye I.P.A., Saranac Big Moose Ale are all new and join the Saranac Maple Porter, Saranac Belgian Ale.

To celebrate the release of the 12 Beers of Winter, Saranac graciously invited many of the local and national beer bloggers to visit the brewery for a private tour and beer dinner, as well as putting the bloggers up in a local hotel. Yours truly was unable to attend but summaries can be found on several of the better beer blogs. The crew over at 2BeerGuys did a three part series (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) chronicling the event. Our good friend Blake from The Brew Authority dedicated a blog post and a podcast to the dinner.

While, I did not attend the dinner, you know TheFoamingHead is the place to go for the best beer ratings, and have provided my thoughts and scores on the 12 Beers of Winter. Check back daily for more ratings.

Thanks for the podcast shout-out. It was definitely a fun trip, sorry you couldn't make it. Definitely appreciate your beer reviews, always very fair and balanced.
