This summer plan ahead if you want Utica Club. The F.X. Matt Brewing Company has announced that there will be a UC beer shortage this summer. 

According to the brewery, the cause of the shortage is due to a packaging problem. There will be a shortage in 12-ounce bottles and cans for a little while. According to, the brewery announced the shortage due to a transition period that didn't go as well as planned.

"We are making some adjustments to a couple of our packages and the transition didn't go as smoothly as we had hoped," Matt said in a news release. "While our sales are strong, it's frustrating to get caught short again and leave our drinkers thirsty."

Enjoy your ice cold Utica Club when you can, don't waste a drop.
