UTICA, N.Y. – Two Saranac beers were gold medal winners in the European Beer Star 2020 competition held at the BrauBeviale trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany.
“Two of our beers, Saranac Pale Ale and Saranac Legacy IPA 2.0, have been recognized as two of the best beers in the world, reflecting the world-class beers we are brewing right here in Utica, N.Y. It is an honor to win and to receive this much-deserved recognition,” said Fred Matt, president of Saranac brewer, F.X. Matt Brewing Company.
More than 2,000 beers from 42 countries entered the contest this year, which is the 16th annual European Beer Star 2020 competition.
