Spa City’s Whitman Brewing Named Top 10 In USA Today Ranking
SARATOGA SPRINGS — Whitman Brewing, located on Lake Avenue in downtown Saratoga Springs, was named among top new breweries in the country by USA Today’s “10Best” ratings.
In its rankings, USA Today explains: Craft breweries are opening in record numbers in the United States, hundreds each year. USA TODAY 10Best wanted to find the best new breweries in the country, ones founded in the past three years, so we asked our readers to vote for their favorites. A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.
Walt & Whitman Brewing Company in Saratoga Springs ranked #8 overall.
Opened just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the brewery has navigated the last year, creating a safe environment for its patrons. Integrating its craft beer menu with a distinctive food menu that features Detroit style pizza, the brewery also features a full coffee shop.
Will Crager, co-owner and founder of Whitman says: beer at Whitman is not just something you can have a discussion over, but something that you can have a discussion about. It will challenge you to think about beer in a different way – as a foundation of culture and conversation. Conversation will not end here. It will extend into discussions on the space and the vibe. Stories of the photos on the wall. Discussions about music, history, art, poetry, and politics. Discussions amongst friends and family. And, yes, even discussions with the stranger sitting to the left or right of you at the bar.

Whitman Brewing Releases First Canned Beer
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Whitman Brewing is excited to announce their first can release, New World Water.
Four-packs of this Hard Seltzer went on sale this past July 30 at the brewery, located at 20 Lake Avenue in Saratoga Springs. The new canning line was scheduled for setup by the manufacturer, Cask Global Canning Solutions, based out of Alberta, Canada, just days before the border was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This delayed the first canning run, but after many calls and video meetings with Cask, Head Brewer Nick Meyer had the machine up and running.
The first release is New World Water, a 5.14% ABV Hard Seltzer conditioned with over 200lbs of puréed strawberries, giving it a subtle pink hue and a slightly tart fruit flavor.
“We are thrilled to finally be able to offer our loyal customers a packaged product. Hard Seltzer seemed like the perfect choice for summer, since it pairs well with outdoor cookouts and boating.” said Brewery Director, Keegan Dombrosky.
