SARATOGA SPRINGS -- One of the most anticipated weeks for Capital Region beer lovers kicked off on Tuesday night.
Saratoga Beer Week started on Tuesday with an event at Olde Saratoga Brewing where the first Beer Week keg was tapped, and Mayor Joanne Yepsen read a proclamation.
The nearly week-long event celebrates craft beer in New York, which is the sixth largest beer producing state in the country.
Beer Week ends Saturday with the Saratoga Beer Summit featuring more than 150 different brews from around the country.
