Three New Saratoga County Beers to Try This New Beer’s Eve

The April 6 "holiday" celebrates the eve of Prohibition being repealed in 1933.

Bound by Fate Brewing Company's new cream ale, KEGASUS.

Eighty-eight years ago this April 6, American morale was high. The 18th amendment—a.k.a. Prohibition—was about to be repealed, meaning the following day, the drinking public would finally be able to imbibe their first legal drinks in 13 years. These days, April 6 is known as New Beer’s Eve, an unofficial holiday that, in our humble opinion, deserves the same hoopla associated with New Year’s Eve. Here are three new Saratoga County beers to cheers this April 6.

Brewery: Bound by Fate Brewing Company


Type: Cream Ale

ABV: 5.3%

About: Back after a brief hiatus, KEGASUS is a distinctly American pre-Prohibition–style ale, one of the few to survive (more or less intact) into modernity. It has a satisfying body and a soft, dry finish. 

Brewery: Whitman Brewing

Beer: Haze Queen

Type: Hazy IPA

ABV: 5.6%

About: The women of Whitman Brewing teamed up to brew Haze Queen using the Pink Boots Blend from Yakima Chief Hops for International Women’s Day. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Pink Boots Society scholarship funds, which support women in the
beer industry.

Brewery: Artisanal Brew Works

Beer: She’s the Bomb

Type: Fruited Sour Ale

ABV: 6.75%

About: She’s the Bomb’s fruit combination was carefully cultivated to create an explosion of fruit flavors that are both sweet and tart. The pink guava and mango fruit flavors are prominent while the banana adds a thick and creamy texture.
