Welcome to the Saratoga Thoroughbrews homebrew club. We are located in the historic thoroughbred horseracing town of Saratoga Springs in upstate New York. The Saratoga Thoroughbrews is a club of dedicated home brewers, whose mission is to educate and to inform its members in brewing techniques, tasting, and judging beer. As a club, we engage in enjoyable social activities focused on brewing and the appreciation of beer.
If you would like to join, or just learn more about home brewing, please contact us by email or come to one of our brew club meetings. Club meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month from 7:00PM-9:00PM at the Olde Saratoga Brewing Company upstairs tasting room.

We hold an annual BJCP/AHA sanctioned homebrew competition, the Knickerbocker Battle of the Brews. This year’s competition will be updated closer to this year’s event at The Albany Pump Station (C.H. Evans Brewing Company). In addition to giving entrants feedback about their beer, mead, and cider, we usually have a great selection of prizes available for the winners. We are always looking for judges to help on the day of the competition as well as, of course, entries.
