Additional Information
The Matt Brewing Company was founded in 1888 by German-born immigrant Francis Xavier Matt, or F.X. as he liked to be called. After Prohibition, F.X., then 74, was joined by his sons Walter and Frank. Walter Matt, who served as company president until 1980, is credited with increasing sales and many building renovations, including the model brewhouse and Tour Center.


The Matt Family of Brewers
Today, under the leadership of the third and fourth generations of the Matt family, the brewery still crafts beer to the exacting standards set forth over a century ago.

True to their German brewing heritage, the Matt Brewery Company has earned its reputation as one of the country's most respected brewers of specialty beers. In each bottle of Saranac, you'll find a commitment to quality and patient attention to detail that is the signature of the Matt Brewing Company.

    Long Family History and very deep selection for any taste. Almost never see below the mid-atlantic and would love to get them more involved in the south. NOt too crazy of their core beers but do like a few of the imperials.
