It is a total surprise that one of the fire investigators didn't come up with the cause of the fire as a burning cigarette, seems most any fire is blamed on a burning cigarette! Why not this one too?

I'm so sorry that there was a fire at the brewery last night. I was devastated when I saw it on the news last night. My hearts go out to the employees of the Brewery. Please rebuild!!

As long as Utica Club beer doesnt raise in price due to lack of availability, we will all be fine. And the moe. concerts better still be on for the brewery lot or ill lose alot of faith in god.

I am so saddened to hear about the Brewery fire. We have a family history; my grandfather worked there, my dad worked there for over 40 years, and we established many friendships. The Matt family and Utica area are in my thoughts and prayers.

I agree that it is sad that we lost such a historical landmark, but as successful as the brewery has become, I'm willing to bet that the Matt family will re-build something new and awesome in it's place that will make the entire community proud.

One of the last few good things Utica had to offer now its gone. Uticans are left with just crooked politics and low paying service jobs. And to Debbie Down your day, NY is now going to recognize gay marriage, reason 26,894 to leave immediately!
