What better way to absorb a little local history than with a beer or wine in hand? That’s the goal of the 8th Annual Night at the Brewseum on this Friday, April 12 at the historic Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs. From 6-9:30pm, guests will get to mix the rich history of the Canfield Casino with spirits, ciders, wines and beers from more than 30 vendors representing the best brewers, distillers and winemakers in the Capital Region.
Some local favorites will be represented on Friday night including Druthers Brewing Company, Saratoga Winery and Saratoga Apple’s Hard Cider. In addition to all the libations, there’ll be a selection of vendors from local restaurants as well, including Harvey’s Restaurant and Bar and Mama Mia’s Pizza and Cafe.
Night at the Brewseum is hosted by the Saratoga Springs Lions Club, a local nonprofit that provides Spa City residents with a range of services, from helping the blind and deaf to funding youth initiatives and community development programs. All proceeds from Night at the Brewseum will go back toward funding the Lions Club’s ongoing mission. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Mama Mia’s bar on Ballston Avenue.
