On Thursday March 31st at 5:00PM, the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating the Grand Opening of F.X. Matt Brewing Co.'s Saranac 1888 Tavern & Tasting Room.
While previously operating as a tasting room only available to patrons at the conclusion of their brewery tours, the Craft New York Act of 2014 now allows the brewery to operate as public bar as well.

The Tavern & Tasting room will now be open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays from 12 to 8 pm until Memorial Day. After Memorial Day, it will be open Monday thru Wednesday from 12 to 6 pm in addition to Thursday thru Saturday until 8 pm (schedule may be subject to change due to spring/summer concert dates).

"Our Brewery has been making beer in our area for four generations" said Nick O. Matt, CEO of the F.X. Matt Brewing Company. "Now, due to Governor Andrew Cuomo's groundbreaking legislation designed specifically to enhance business in New York State, we can offer beer lovers more opportunities to drink our beer right here at our brewery."

The event is open to the public. You can RSVP to the event by calling 315-724-3151 x228.
