They got the perfect feeling from this one, and partnered with the Vibes to create an exclusivebrew to be served at this year’s event. Saranac fans and members of the “Vibe Tribe” were asked to help name the beer, and the suggestions and votes came flowing in. The overwhelming winner was Saranac Liquid Vibes.
The new official beer of Gathering of the Vibes will be a refreshing lager, perfect for this laid-back summer event. Saranac Liquid Vibes will be sharing space in the beer tent with Saranac IPA andSaranac Summer Ale.
