Saratoga Brewing Company and Tap Room Suddenly Closes

Saratoga Brewing Company which started making beer in 1997 has suddenly closed. The company has been operating out of a property at 131  Excelsior Avenue owned by Stewarts Shops.   SBC has brewed beer for a number of companies here in New York.  This is the story from the Saratogian January 17 edition.

The reason for the sudden closing in the story was confusing.  This story from the Press Democrat in Santa Rosa, California cast more light on the situation.

The local Saratoga brewery is part of a larger empire run by Vijay Mallya whose corporate headquarters are in London.  Mr. Mallya is fighting extradition to India over charges of fraud and money laundering.
