A must do in Utica. The Saranac Brewery Tour.
Our Brew Tour Group
Beautiful crystal chandeliers - photos especially for Jenny
Loads of stunning stain glass windows, this one in the Speak Easy....ie Prohibition drinking room
The beautiful old original (100 years plus) Brass Kettle fermentation pots
The concertina thing that squashes the malt etc
The squashed out malt etc
Cold rooms with huge aging tanks
And yes, besides all the ‘normal’ beer, they make ‘Pumpkin Ale’ for the Fall (Autumn).
In town, we were surprised at the number of beautiful old buildings. This church was stunning and old.
Our mooring, at the Utica old Lock, now disused and closed to all water traffic.
Bicycle/walking paths from our mooring into town - we saw loads of joggers, dog walkers, bikers, motor/scrambler bikers along this pathway
