Saranac releases new beer just before start of concert series

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The very first Saranac Thursday is less than a week away and in honor of American Craft Beer Week Saranac hosted a happy hour to debut their new single hop called Belma Ipa Friday night.

This year marks the 15th year for the concert series. A few new things offered for Saranac this year include the addition of a live DJay in between the bands' sets.

But, organizers said, they're main focus is giving back to the community.

"We actually hit the 400-thousand dollar mark last year for the money that we've donated to United Way in the past 14 years," said Meghan Fraser marketing, public relations official. "So for our 15th year, we're just really looking forward to raising even more money and of course having a great event for the community to enjoy."
