All the way back in 1888 a German-born immigrant by the name of F.X. Matt started up this family brewery, and ever since the brewery has been owned by his descendants. The brewery has a very large variety of beer types, and today it has become a rather big regional institution. The word Saranac is a native Indian word meaning "Cluster of Stars." And in this context, the word has been borrowed to describe one of the most beautiful parks in the area, Adirondack.
