Club Update: Saratoga Thoroughbrews

Saratoga/Glens Falls/Albany area

Hi All,

First up, of course, is our monthly meeting this Thursday, October 7th at 7pm at the tap room at OSB. We will be judging catagories 20 and 21, but feel free to bring anything you wish to share.

On October 16th, from 1-5, is the Octoberfest at Adirondack Pub and Brewery in Lake George to benefit the Red Cross. We will once again be manning a table, and sharing our homebrew. Anyone interested in assisting with set-up should be there around noon. Bringing homebrew is encouraged; I will have an English Bitter on tap.

At 9 am on Saturday, November 13th will be our 15th annual Knickerbocker Battle of the Brews at the Albany Pump Station. We are still in need of Judges and Stewards, and others to help prior to the competition. Anyone interested in being a judge or steward, please let me know as soon as possible; please include your BJCP # if you have one, as well as which styles you wish to judge/steward, and which you wish to avoid. Anyone interested in volunteering for other duties, please contact Chris Gersey at: . And of course, ENTER!!

Hope to see you all there,



On October 16th at Adirondack Pub and Brewery, from 1-5, will be their Oktoberfest fundraiser for the Red Cross. Anybody interested in manning the club’s table with me, and/or providing some homebrew, please let me know. I will have an English Bitter on tap. See Adam’s email below for more info.

Our Oktoberfest will be held Oct. 16 from 1-5. As always you guys are welcome to have a table to serve some home brews and to educate people on home brewing. If you guys could be there by 12 so you can get set up and to help anyone else who needs help unloading that would be great

Thanks and if you need any other info just send me an email
