Fire-Damaged Upstate N.Y. Brewery to Restart Beer Production

June 4, 2008

Draft beer will be flowing again at an upstate New York brewery following a fire that caused $10 million in damage last week.

Operations were halted at F.X. Matt Brewing Co. in Utica following last Thursday’s fire, but President Nick Matt says the brewery’s production facilities were not affected.

He says beer production will resume Tuesday, the brewery’s first new batch of brew since the fire.

Meanwhile, fire investigators are scheduled Tuesday to release the results of their formal investigation into the blaze. Officials previously said they believe the fire was caused by a welding project being done on the company’s canning line.
