“Excellent beer under construction”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We have learned to travel with an empty growler and to seek out local breweries in hopes that we will happen upon a good one. And we certainly did at Blue Line Brewery! At first, we weren't sure if we were visiting a brewery or a construction site, but the owner waved us in, put down his power tools and invited us to sample some beer. He apologized for the mess and for having only two brews available; it seems he can hardly keep up with demand - the construction project is to enlarge the brewing facility and the tasting room. Both beers were rich and flavorful but my husband and I both thought the Black Fly IPA was the more interesting of the two, so we chose it to fill our growler The owner saw our growler from another excellent New York brewery and asked if we would swap it for one of his. Why not? He added our growler to his collection and we added another excellent brew to our list of favorite craft beers. So glad we stopped in!

“The newest Adirondack microbrewery!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

The Blue Line Brewery is a new start-up in Saranac Lake and it is just what this town needs. Mark, the owner and brewer was great to talk to and very knowledgable about his brews. The sampling room was informal but a welcoming atmosphere. You can learn all about the brews on tap and have samples at no charge (so far). You can also purchase a growler of your favorite. Mine was the Black Fly IPA (what an Adirondack name). My wife enjoyed the 6er Ale. If you don't know what a 6er is, just ask.
Good beer is now available in Saranac Lake! There are a number of restaurants in and around the Blue Line that are carrying these beers now. One more reason to love a trip to the Adirondacks.
