Brewery to host soft launch of The Biergarten

UTICA — Saranac fans will soon be able to get a first look at the brewery’s latest venture.

F.X. Matt Brewing Company, 830 Varick St., will welcome the public today from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. to its soft launch of The Biergarten, an outdoor experience where people of all ages will be able to dine and drink at the brewery.

The Biergarten will have a full bar and food service available for patrons, as well as yard games, a family-friendly atmosphere and even photo opportunities with the U and C letters that were once prominently displayed on the original Utica Club sign. In the near future, patrons can also expect special events and live music to happen throughout the year.

“What we wanted to do is, aside from trying to revitalize a little bit of our neck of the woods on Varick Street and improve the appearance and clean it up a little bit on our end, we wanted to create a space where it’s family-friendly,” said Tara Ritchko, visitor experience manager at F.X. Matt Brewing Company.

The Biergarten’s tentative hours of operation are scheduled to be 3 to 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays.

“We’re excited to get it open and get things rolling and get everyone in,” Ritchko added. “It’s new for us, but the team that we have brought on have been doing this for a long time at different places and we’re just excited to start here.”
