Wolff’s Biergarten is temporarily closing all of its locations amid new coronavirus concerns.

In a statement posted Saturday, franchise owner Matt Baumgartner says they do not feel safe right now as they see a rise in cases within their own teams.


“The model put in place for bars and restaurants just doesn’t work right now,” says Baumgartner.

He goes on in the statement that within the last few weeks of being open, many people didn’t follow the rules and they cannot afford extra staffing to police everyone.

Wolff’s has locations in Albany, Troy and Schenectady.
