Mat Murdock from King FM made a visit to Saratoga’s very own Snowy Mountain Brewery and here’s what he had to say! We absolutely loved having Mat and his wife at the resort, and we appreciate all the kind words.
My wife and I made a trip to Saratoga for a few days of relaxing at the resort in town. I’ll tell you one thing, if you need to recharge from the craziness of what 2020 has done to us, this is a pretty good place to do it. Even the drive was enjoyable and aesthetically pleasing as we cut through Medicine Bow and the Snowy Range. One of the advantages for us to stay at Saratoga Hot Springs Resort was, you guessed it, there’s a brewery at the resort!

Snowy Mountain Brewery had a lot of beers to choose from on their menu, IPAs, Ales, Stouts, you name it. The beer I enjoyed the most and deserves the most love, in my humble opinion, was their Scottish Ale, Beam Me Up Scotty. I’ve never really been into Star Trek, but the Scottish Ale was worth the Trek. See what I did there? Why do I hear crickets. Anywho, this ale is very tasty, a little boozy at 5.8 ABV, but not bad.
Here’s how they describe it:
Beam Me Up Scotty. This elevated Scotch Ale is malty, hearty, and rich. Perfect summer beer.
While I agree with the descriptions, I think this beer would pair better in the cooler months due to the bite from the ABV, but that’s just my opinion. This was such a treat to drink in the beautiful backdrop of Saratoga. If you want to take the gorgeous drive from Cheyenne, I recommend stopping and grabbing a pint, or more.
