F.X. Matt Brewery helps award winning brewer with bigger batches

By JOLEEN FERRIS

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - He has a background in chemistry, loves to cook and likes great beer. Those three qualities have landed local brewer Carl Woodward to a spot of distinction in the New York State Fair.

Woodward's German brew won him first place and on Wednesday, he let us in on a few of his secrets.

"It's a base German wheat beer with some coriander salt and some souring agent, some sort of lactic acid works nicely. It's just a unique beer," says Woodward.

Now, FX Matt Brewing Company is helping Woodward whip up a bigger batch of his beer for the Great American Brewfest in Colorado this October.

Woodward is from Panther Lake, NY, west of Camden.
