I have taken many tours of facilities like the brewery, but none were like this one. Our guide was very personable and knowledgable. The opportunity to see this facility is an experience I will remember for a long time. The memorabilia in the building was outstanding. Where else could you rub elbows with the CEO? It actually happened. An admission... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from matt's, I know it's a big brewery that do a lot of contact brewing. But I was pleasantly surprised. The beer is obviously made with a lot of care, and the tour was great, very informative. The tasting at the end was good lots of stuff to try. The decor too is very gentlemans... More

The value in this tour is insane - 5 bucks for 2 pints and unlimited additional samples! Oh, and a really interesting tour of the building and brewery family history... and the tour guide was fantastic... and the beer was really good (and I'm picky about beer!). Even the retail store was cool. If you are ever in Utica (for... More

We were very impressed by our tour of the F.X. Matt Brewing Company. Our tour guide was very well-versed in the brewery's rich history. The tour takes you through the entire brewing process, and we were lucky to see the bottling process in action, which we were told is unusual for a Saturday tour. Only disappointment was not receiving a... More

We visited this brewery one Saturday afternoon. Only $5 per person and it was great. Our tour guide was very informative and seemed as if he enjoyed his job, which made the tour more fun. We got to learn about the different types of beer and received tickets for the bar afterwards. I would highly recommend this place to anyone,... More

The tour starts and ends in the gift shop, our guide Ryan was very personable, humorous and informative, he recited a FX Matt the second poem, sang in the elevator too! The temperatuve was 93 so the best part of the tour is when you go through the areas that are a lil chilly! Felt like heaven! All beer is... More

As I travel quite a bit I have been on many factory and brewery tours but this ones stands head and shoulders above all the rest! They charge $5 which isn't bad and we were greeted by Ryan, the tour supervisor. He was fantastic, knowledgeable and a real asset to F.X. Matt Brewing Co. The tour involved a very detailed... More

We visited this brewery tour during our family trip to Maine. The staff are very friendly and the tour guides make the tour interesting and fun. You can enjoy several beers (or good bottled soda like rootbeer or orange creme) at the end of the tour. We did visit another beer tour during our trip, but this one was our... More

Decent small-time brewery with decent products. One bad thing about my visit is having to come after hours when the packing machinery is off for the day.

We've toured several breweries and always enjoy ourselves but this one gives a couple of unique features. First off the history of the family owned brewery and what they've done over the years is very interesting. Secondly, the pub at the end of the tour is the best we've been to in a brewery! Thanks Matt family.
