1st Saratoga Brewfest draws a sommelier

18 Apr

BALLSTON SPA, NY — The inaugural Saratoga Brewfest is being planned for the wide open spaces of Saratoga County.

The Ellms Family Farm, at 448 Charlton Road, will be the site of the Saturday, June 19, event which is split into two parts.

The event will begin with a noon to 1:30 p.m. VIP Tasting and lunch with the brewers.

Greg Engert (right), beer director/partner at ChurchKey-Birch & Barley in Washington, DC, will be the guest speaker. In March, Food & Wine magazine named Engert one of its “Sommeliers of the Year,” the first time the magazine ever selected a beer professional for the honor.

Then, from 2 to 6 p.m., the general session will be held, which will included craft beer tastings and live music.

Tickets will go on sale May 1.
