It was a celebration of all things beer and chips in Saratoga County.

The Saratoga chips and beer festival was held today at Brookside Museum in Ballston Spa.  

The famous Saratoga chips are the feature of the museum’s current exhibit, “In the Saratoga Style: Potato Chips and Their Regional Folklore.”

Potato chip expert Alan Richer says the timing of this event could not be better.

“The country sometimes politically is divided, but the two things that unite the country are obviously chips and beer, so it’s a good thing right after the elections.”

There was also live music, a campfire, a s’mores station, a silent auction, and a game of potato chip trivia.
