If you're looking for an alternative to Varick Street after the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Utica, Check out the party at Woodland Farm Brewery in Marcy.

Avoid the lines and the rowdy crowds by heading up to Woodland Farm Brewery on Saturday, March 11.

The guys at Woodland will be opening up early - at 8 a.m. for a little bit of a liquid breakfast that's brewed right here in town.

If early morning beer isn't your thing, they will be offering a brunch spread until 11 a.m. with live music from Above The Dam.

Of course what would a St. Patrick's Day celebration be without a good stout beer?

Woodland will feature their delicious oatmeal stout on nitro(no carbonation = smooth rich texture) and will have samples available all day.

After the parade is over the party doesn't stop either, enjoy more live music, food and locally brewed beer all while taking in a beautiful view of the Mohawk Valley and avoiding the craziness that is Varick Street on parade day.
