November 1, 2016 Business No Comments

NEW HARTFORD — After several weekends of “soft” openings, the Canton couple behind Brewery Legitimus will host two special events this weekend, including a grand opening celebration on Saturday Nov. 5.

For its grand opening, which takes place from noon to 9 p.m., the brewery, located at 283 Main St. (Route 44) in New Hartford, will feature at least five of its own beers, several guest taps, a food truck courtesy of Christie Caters LLC and, from 6 to 9 p.m., the music of Blind Smudge.

Additionally, on Nov. 4, the brewery will host a formal ribbon cutting with members of the New Hartford Business Council and other invited guests. The ceremony begins at 4 p.m. with a ribbon cutting at approximately 4;30 p.m. The public is also welcome to attend.

Chris and Christina Sayer opened the doors “softly” on Sept. 23 to an overwhelming number of people. Since then, there has been a steady stream of customers.

Chris Sayer said the brewery is attracting many people from numerous surrounding towns.

“The local support has been unreal,” he said.

The brewery, which  has a 7-barrel and pilot systems, is located in a 3,300 square-foot space in the former Waring Factory complex.

The taproom features a bar and farm tables with seating for approximately 60, as well as standing room.

The Sayers have hired four employees for its tasting room and plan to hire four more.

The brewery is currently expanding its 8 taps to 16. On Saturday, Chris Sayer, expects to have five – possibly six – of his own beers on tap as well as some guest brews.  Guests can purchase pints to enjoy at the brewery or purchase growlers to take home. Eventually, the Sayers will market their beer to outside locations.

Hours are:
Thursday and Friday – 5 to 9 p.m.
Saturday – 12pm to 9pm
Sunday – 12pm to 5pm
