The Fourth Annual Saratoga Beer Week is taking place this week and beer enthusiasts are gearing up for a five-day, city-wide beer celebration with dozens of beer-centered events scheduled.
One of our favorite events is at Henry Street Taproom, their 3rd Annual Beer and Oyster class on Saturday February 21st from 12 – 1:30pm. This year, they’re pairing beers from Stone Brewing Co. with some of their favorite oysters. HST’s own Oyster Whisperers – Andras Janik and Ryan McFadden – will be talking about the oysters, while Stone will be handling the Beer side of things. Click here for tickets (their other events are already selling out so I recommend you do it asap!).
The big hurrah of the week is the Beer Summit at the Saratoga Springs City Center on Saturday, February 21st. Tickets are $40 in advance ($50 at the door) and you can sample over 200 releases from more than 80 of America’s best craft breweries. There are two beer summit sessions:
