An official Path Through History Site! Tour the FX Matt Brewing company where Saranac beers and soft drinks are created. Learn the history of this legacy brewery (FX Matt Brewery was the first brewery in the nation to sell a beer at the end of Prohibition in 1933!) and the Matt family's German heritage. Stop in the 1888 Tavern after the tour or anytime as they are open to the public for sampling or purchase. Brewery tours are offered on Fridays and Saturdays.
