The Olde Saratoga Brewing Company is the wholly-owned subsidiary of Mendocino Brewing Company in Ukiah, California, and has been bringing you the highest quality, fresh, traditional, all malt craft-brewed lager and ales since 1997.
Brewing the five legend ales, the Mendocino Brewing Company was established in 1983 as the first brew pub in California, and the second in the United States. It is known today as the fourth largest brewery in New York state, and a great place to visit. (Since 2001, Saratoga has been the sole brewery for Kingfisher in the Northeast United States, celebrating over 150 years of brewing. Their Premium Lager is enjoyed in over 55 countries and is the world’s #1 Indian beer.)
Your favorite Beer of the Month Club is more than proud to be bringing you two of the top sellers from Olde Saratoga:
Saratoga IPA exhibits the perfect balance between Cascade and Fuggles hops, and the bold Munich Malt which gives this beer its clean, crisp, full-balanced flavor. It’s refreshingly delicious!
The winter seasonal, Saratoga Oatmeal Stout, has a flavor profile replete with nuances of bold dark chocolate and black coffee with a tint of a hint of creamy caramel. These are well-balanced by the nutty biscuit-like notes, a result of the more than generous use of rolled oats. The artful use of hops makes for a suitably pleasant dry and lingering finish.
THAT’S FAST! Olde Saratoga brews 70,000 BBL’s per year in their 125 BBL Brew House. Their Krones filler can bottle 200 beers every minute, and their KHS kegger fills 15.5 gallons per minute, giving Jimmy Johns a run for the title of speediest delivery!
