COVID has led to a lot of changes in the restaurant scene in the Capital Region. Though this wasn’t COVID related, it’s still not something we saw coming!
In 2009, Matt Baumgartner opened up Wolff’s Biergarten to revitalize Albany’s warehouse district. He then, on top of opening other successful restaurants, opened more Wolff’s locations including Schenectady, Troy, and Syracuse.
The Times Union is reporting that changes are coming to these different locations. Baumgartner will be selling the Albany, Schenectady, and Syracuse locations while repurposing the Troy storefront. Baumgartner will be changing the Troy location to a new name to be announced in mid-March and they’re currently refreshing the facade.
Baumgartner said that the reason for the change was the effort he started putting in June Farms. Baumgartner also sold Bombers Burrito Bar back in 2017. “In addition to Troy Beer Garden’s revamped food, its 20-tap draft line will switch to an emphasis on local and regional craft beers, and the inside will be more stylish than the rusticity of Wolff’s, Baumgartner said.”
No word yet on the future of the other Wolff’s Biergarten locations.
