R.S. Taylor and Sons Brewery is based in the small, Washington County town of Hebron. This independent farm brewery grew out of the idea that beer is an agricultural product and should be enjoyed by beer drinkers as such. Founder and brewer, R.S., believes that in order to truly appreciate the beverage in your pint glass, you need to see, feel and smell the ingredients that go into it. So, R.S. decreed that the only appropriate place to brew his fine ales was in farm country. In 2017 the family run brewery expanded and opened the Saratoga Taproom giving son Owen an opportunity to become more involved in the family business.
