American Red Cross Battle of the Brews at the Saratoga Race Course. Friday, August 24th - Noon - 4:30 pm A "pint" sized competition will bring big brewers to the backyard on the eve of the 143rd running of the Travers Stakes as Saratoga Race Course hosts the 15th annual "Battle of the Brews." A frothy backyard battle, patrons 21 years and older will have a chance to sample some great microbrews and then and then offer critiques in categories like "people’s choice," and "judge’s choice." Admission to the Battle of the Brews is $30. Proceeds benefit the American Red Cross Adirondack Saratoga Chapter.
