Originally only available on tap or as a free bonus pint in specially marked, limited time packages of award-winning Pale Ale, White IPA and Trail Mix, the new four-packs will be hitting store shelves in late November.
“We’ve been overwhelmed with requests for more ways to get Legacy IPA,” said company President Fred Matt. “Who are we to argue with the masses? Our customers know what they want so we’re going to give it to them.”
Legacy IPA was born of a recently re-discovered original IPA recipe by company founder F.X. Matt. That original IPA recipe used the most innovative ingredients available at the time, and inspired current brewers to adapt it in homage to the company’s history. The current Legacy IPA features a blend of historic, traditional and innovative hops for a heavenly aroma and full-bodied flavor.
“Who knew one of Saranac’s newest beers would be from a recipe so old,” said Saranac fan Donald Lindhuber of Liverpool, N.Y. “When I found the Legacy IPA in my 12-pack, I knew this was going to be good. The inviting aroma of hops with a taste to match…This beer needs a pack of its own!”
F.X. Matt Brewing Co. was founded in 1888 and today is actively run by third and fourth generations of the Matt family, Nick and Fred Matt.
