This tour was very interesting, history of the building, brewery, explanation of how beer is made and two pints of beer or soda at the end. Totally worth it and have been told each tour you learn a little something different.

I have not been on this tour for over 30 years. However, I was thrilled! The tour itself was about 45 minutes and our guide Cullen Was outstanding! It was so nostalgic for me. The difference this time was that I could actually drink the beer instead of root beer lol. $5 gets you a tour ticket and two large... More

Stopped for a tour of the brewery. We decided not to take the tour, 45 minutes, and a lot of walking and stairs. Elderly aunt with us and she could not do all the walking, so we decided to sample in the tasting room. Two tickets for two samples are $5. I was hoping to sample a many different beers,... More

A great tour to do in Utica. You can learn a lot about the brewing process, and the beer is quite good here as well. Worth stopping!

I've been on a lot of brewery tours, and the tour part is all pretty much the same. Graciously, this one did not demand you take taste tests of various varieties of raw barley or take deep whiffs of raw hops and instead stuck to the history and brewing process. The history of the brewery proved interesting, the brewing process... More

I was never much of a beer drinker but my husband loves craft brews, so we like to take tours when we can. We were in the area so we stopped in on a warm Friday afternoon. Uticaclub was a favorite of our fathers, and now it brews the Saranac line so we decided to try it. The tour was... More

We are big beer nerds, so we knew we had to stop at FX Matt as we passed through Utica. I am so glad we did! It was the best brewery tour we have been to in the US. The place is huge! The guide was great as he led us through the history of the brewery and the collection... More

I was so excited to introduce Jon to my early childhood in Utica/New Hartford; part of that includes touring the FX Matt Brewing Co! It's so funny to think that we used to do the tour as part of school and Girl Scout activities in the 1970's! It's just as I remember, the sights and smells. A great way to... More

Was slightly confused at first with all the different names on the signs......Saranac, Utica Club, FX Matt. So glad we dropped in for the tour. Was extremely interesting to hear the history of the FX Matt brewing company and all the ways they have grown over the years. They were pioneers of the craft beer movement. The tour was reasonably...

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
