What happened to the annual Saranac Thursday summer concert series in Central New York?

For years, Central New Yorkers looked forward to Thursday night. That's the night everyone gathered at FX Matt Brewery for beer and live entertainment. But not this year. Saranac Thursdays have changed.

The Biergarten

The Biergarten is now open at the Brewery. You can enjoy a cold beverage, play games and even bring your dog.

Come relax with a cold beer in our family and dog-friendly atmosphere and enjoy the lawn games and weekly new pilot beers.

Saranac Concert Series

There will still be music at the Brewery. Moe has been announced as part of the Saranac Concert Series on June 9 and 10. Collective Soul will perform on August 18.

While you're there be sure to take a picture with the UC letters. They are the same ones that used to be on top of the brewery and light up at night.
