Druthers Brewing Company Launches “HorsePlay” Beer to Support Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga

Saratoga Springs, NY (July 9, 2024) – Druthers Brewing Company proudly announces the release of a special brew, “HorsePlay,” dedicated to supporting the noble cause of  Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga (THS). This refreshing beer is a Blonde Ale brewed with Peach Tea from The Whistling Kettle, expertly crafted for the summer season. It offers a light and drinkable option that will surely delight beer enthusiasts while contributing to a meaningful cause.

HorsePlay represents a collaboration rooted in community and support. Each purchase helps provide essential care for the horses at THS, which in turn supports the mental health services these horses provide to our community, making every sip more than just a taste experience.

“We are thrilled to introduce ‘HorsePlay’ as a tribute to the incredible work done by Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga,” said Chris and Scott Martell, co-owners of Druthers Brewing Company. “This partnership represents our commitment to giving back to the community and supporting initiatives that make a real difference. We invite everyone to join us in raising a glass for a great cause.”

HorsePlay will be available at all five Druthers Brewing Company locations, at the Saratoga Racecourse, and a variety of other vendors around the Capital Region ensuring accessibility for patrons eager to support Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga. Every purchase of this special brew will directly contribute to funding the essential care and well-being of the horses involved in therapeutic programs.

“We are deeply grateful for the support of Druthers Brewing Company and the launch of ‘HorsePlay’,” expressed Meg Koloskie, Development Manager at Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga. “This initiative not only raises vital funds for our organization but also raises awareness about the transformative power of equine therapy. Together, we can make a meaningful impact on the lives of individuals in need.”

“In addition, we are honored to have nationally recognized artist, Frankie Flores, contribute the beautiful artwork for the HorsePlay can. His art perfectly captures the spirit and essence of what we aim to achieve with this initiative,” said Koloskie.

“Many thanks to Druthers and Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga (THS) for inviting me as a local artist to be a part of this amazing effort” stated Mr. Flores. “Giving back to the Saratoga community through my equine and jazz art is very important to me. I love that the Horse Play artwork, as prints and the label on Druthers’ beer, can help raise funds for THS to provide aftercare and repurposing of our precious racehorses, but also promote Saratoga as a city of the arts.”

THS also wishes to offer special thanks to DeCrescente Distributing Company for their invaluable support in distributing and backing up this beer.
