This is the newest beer bar in Saratoga and when I first had read about it here on BA, I thought it was an old place that had been renovated and then enhanced with a bigger beer and drink menu. That is not the case. It is located in what was previously a coffee shop near the corner of Henry street and lake ave---so its basically accross the street from the outdoor section of The Parting Glass.
Decor is nice hardwoods and brick and its kept pretty dark in here but what lighting it does have turned on is quite pleasant. The draft list was about 20-25 all craft beers but unfortunately, I felt like many of them were too high in ABV for me to order especially after drinking at the racetrack all afternoon. I got a Left Hand Milk stout which was quite tasty. The bartender was as friendly as can be and had a lot to do with why I came back shortly afterwards with the wife for a few more beers. Upon returning, I was greeteed with a "welcome back" and a smile and asked if I wanted another Milk stout. I saw there was a Bear Republic pilsener on tap which I had never heard of and I love most everything I've had from Bear Republic--this was no exception as it was excellent. The wife had a Schneider Weisse and that tasted spot on as well.
Didnt order any food but the food I did see looked quite good. I'll be going for a little longer stay in Saratoga in 2 weeks and this place is definitely a must stop. Overall, a great addition to the neighborhood.

Went to Henry St. Taproom two nights in a row - once for just drinks and the other for dinner. It's a smallish space, very comfortable, decent sized bar, a few high tops and then some other tables. Nice fireplace in the corner.
Taplist features 16 offerings. Good variety of styles. Nice mix of local options (multiple Captain Lawrence, Rushing Duck, Ithaca etc). Bottle list was good too including the same mix of styles and some rarer offerings (Cantillon and Tilquin geueze). Good turnover too, there were 6 different things kicked between the two nights we visited. Granted this was on a holiday weekend with a big concert in town, but still impressive.
Service was good overall. Better at the bar than at the tables which looked a little understaffed when we were there. The only issue was when the waitress brought me a Tilquin instead of a Cantillion geueze - BA problems - but it was quickly corrected.
Prices seemed fairly reasonable. The draft offerings came in varying sizes so that everything fit in the $5-$7 range. Some bottles seemed marked up a lot more than others, but nothing outrageous. Food prices might have been a tad high, but quality was good.

Great beer selection that rotates on a regular basis. The happy hour beer flights and cheese pairings are a great value and a great way to taste a few beers for little money. Nice friendly neighborhood atmosphere mixed in with visitors from local hotels.

Very nice little taproom, wood bar, brick, and a nice fireplace in the winter. 16 taps rotate very often. The beer selection is always top notch, you won't find anything on tab (or bottle) that is not a top shelf microbrew.
Best beer bar in Saratoga.

About 15 top of the line beers on tap from the best breweries with a broad and wonderful range. Recent addition to the Saratoga scene, and the best beer bar in town. The crowd is smart and interesting. Also, wonderful menu. Tried the quail and slaw tapas at the bar - as fine as you could find in Manhattan.
