Saratoga Beer Week 2012 is February 23 – 25 at the City Center, and throughout downtown Saratoga Springs. We’ll be celebrating three days of more than 25 events, beer dinners, The Grand Food and Rare Beer Tasting, and the annual Saratoga Beer Summit.
Unfamiliar with craft beer? The term craft beer refers to beer created by a craft brewer. A craft brewer should be small, independent, and traditional. By small, I mean they don’t produce millions and millions of barrels of beer per year. Local breweries often produce less than a thousand barrels per year. Independent means that no more than 25% of the brewery can be owned by a major brewery like Miller or Coors. Traditional means that adjuncts (corn & rice) are used to enhance the flavor of the beer, not lighten it.
