Belgium Comes to Cooperstown. Amazing. Food, beer, tours, setting, it’s awesome. The gift shop is amazing, with hop cheese, cheese spread, mustard, shirts, bottles, all sorts of great stuff. Probably the most idyllic setting for a brewery in the US.

Visited in August when it was like 150 degrees. Loved the free tour as well as the tasting. I realized I’d been consuming most of their stock at way to cold a temperature. I’d love to go back when they build the new restaurant.

Nice looking castle-like building. Friendly staff, awesome festival. Hard workers who enjoy a good beer.

I was just here for BCTC, so my review may be a little slanted - a really beautiful brewery set back in some of the most gorgeous countryside in upstate NY - of course, that makes it really far out of the way of..well...anything, making it not really worth the trip if that’s all you’re planning on doing - however, they do make great beer - they are great hosts - and the beers are waaaaay cheap in the gift shop - don’t go there expecting to find rare beers that they don’t send out to stores, though, because all you’re going to get are their standards - if you’re there for BCTC, though, well, that’s a different story...

This place looks really cool. Stopped here for the tour and that was somewhat mediocre. There were a bunch of Hall of Fame tourists who had no clue what the hell Belgian Beer was. The guy giving the tour wasn’t particularly knowledgeable, so that was dissapointing. They did have a nice little tasting session and they had some pretzels along with their own cheese spreads that were yummy. I think they also had some maple syrup. The best reason to visit this place is that you can find their cave-aged Hennepin there.

Made a quick stop. Short little 15 minute tour. sampled the beers. Beers were all very good. Little selection due to the fact they make so few. Quality over quantity

Another one of those “whoops, how did I never rate this place?” place ratings. I honestly can’t say that I’ve ever been here at a time that wasn’t Belgium Comes to Cooperstown weekend, but that will likely changed next time we’re on a trajectory that puts them within a half hour detour range. In the last couple of years the retail areas and bar areas have been added and upgraded and they are just gorgeous. All of the staff that I’ve come into contact with through volunteering at BCTC and being a customer up there are great. Certainly worth a visit, and especially worth going to BCTC.

I went here on a rainy day this past weekend. The interior is open to the public and tours are given every half hour. All their beers are available to taste, most of which are available on tap. I’m looking forward to 3 years from now when their Biergaarden will be opening on the premises. It will supposedly feature 150 Belgian and Belgian style releases from around the world.

Visited June 21, 2013 for lunch. Very large place really disconnected from everything (although I have not yet visited Hill Farmstead). Although there was room on the terrace, I had lunch inside at a communal table with tourists. My lunch was weird, but delicious, fried chicken on a waffle with pepper sauce and strawberry jam. I only had one beer on tap, Fleur De Houblon, it was very good. I visited their shop, full of beautiful things. But the beer selection has disappointed me, other than their regular products, there were only three houses, I tried all of them. But it is a very cool place, maybe next time I’ll be there for BCTC!?

Visited for the weekend of the Belgium Comes To Cooperstown festival in July, I really enjoyed the beautiful and extensive grounds around the buildings, and the buildings themselves were well-laid out and in good repair. We saw some of the tanks inside next to the store (mostly t-shirts and bombers for sale) but did not take the tour nor try any of the beers in the tasting bar next to it. Over the course of the weekend though, staying on location with our tents like 500 other people, I tried a lot more of their beers than I ever had and all were tasty and good quality. (Note about the festival: Best camping/beer festival I’ve been to, I would say. Met a ton of great people, tried a ton of great beers from all over the States, soaked up the sun, ate delicious pulled pork products and listened to the Beatles blast until 11pm every night!) I would seek out Ommegang’s beers now, partly because of this experience, partly because their beers are really very good. Definitely worth the visit, but I can’t imagine it would be as good at any other time of the year than at their own festival.
