I stopped in for a visit after a long business meeting in Cooperstown and was pleasantly surprised to find they were going to be open later than usual because they had live music. I went on a brewery tour which was a little over-scripted but pleasant enough. The tasting afterwards included seven of their beers on their back patio. In addition to sampling the seven beers, they had several taps at their inside bar with a number of other beers available. I had a glass of Duvel on draught, Liefmans Cuvee Brut, as well as a new beer from Ommegang called Aphrodite. The staff were all friendly and the place had a definite charm to it. I would have rated Ambiance a 5 except that the stench from their dumpsters overwhelms you as you walk through their parking lot. Other than that, my visit was delightful.

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

Driving about yesterday we stopped by the much spoken of Ommegang Brewery. A pleasant drive up and thru to the parking area delivered us to a few minute wait till the next tour began.. Smaller than I had expected, this place must be running at 100% to meet their distribution range. the tour was given buy an enthusiastic youth in a serious need of a videotaping to inform him that HE DOESNíT NEED TO FOCKING YELL AT THE TOP OF HIS FOCKING LUNGS TO GET HIS POINT ACROSS!....Jerk. He also needed a haircut, yet he kept the tasting moving thru the seven selections...hoping for the Beer De Mars but alas I was crestfallen. The chocolate addition with their 3 Philosophers was a nice serendipitous discovery. Prices on norm but nothing special.

If you live in America and say you love beer and never attend BCTC, then I will call you a liar. The brewery itself does not offer a tremendous selection, but itís in a beautiful valley, and man, is it ever a great place for a festival.

Itís hard to believe this little "farm house" brewery puts out enough beer to distribute to 48 states! If you are in the area then it probably means you are here for baseball - either for the Hall of Fame or the Dreams Park tourney, or both. Either way, sneak over here for a tour and tasting. Itís free and oh so good!

After a high stress drive trying to find the place we walked into this picturesque little brewery and asked a young gentleman at the counter if we could take a tour. We were informed that if we ducked into the tasting room that the prior tour would be tasting in five minutes, that we could get in on that then heíd take us on a tour and do another tasting. Suffice to say this guy was awesome enough. The first tasting did a side by side with fresh Ommegang Abbey and the Cave aged counterpart which was dramatic and awesome. The tour was nice and itís amazing to see the output of this little brewery. The second tasting was filled with much beer talk, invitations to Belgium comes to Cooperstown, offers of bottles of Duvel and plenty of delicious chocolate and cheese. The gift shop is nice and plenty of fine glassware and cave aged ales can be had there.

Visited on a weekend trip to the hall of fame for the boyfriendís Christmas gift. The drive through the rolling hills in the snow was precarious but beautiful. We were the only people there that day so we had an intimate private tour. The staff was super friendly and we ended up just hanging with some of the workers for the rest of the afternoon over several brews. I spent some money there but we headed back to Worcester with a car full of goodies.

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 Iíve 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 Ommegangís beers now, partly because of this experience, partly because their beers are really very good. Definitely worth the visit, but I canít imagine it would be as good at any other time of the year than at their own festival.

To say I was disappointed would be a profound understatement. The tour was a crushing letdown, though. The "guide" mumbled, seemed worked up that he actually had to give a tour at this, arguably the best brewery on the continent, and that, God forbid, we may actually have questions that required substantive answers. As pointless as the tour at Capital Brewery in Madison, Wisconsin, but with a chip-on-the-shoulder attitude that was really disheartening.
Hereís a hint, Ommegang. You act as though the beer is the only thing thatís important, that you donít have to care about your customers, and you wonít have to worry about either for much longer. Act as though you donít need me, that there are more important things than being happy for the fact that I drop 900 miles to visit your brewery, and you wonít have to worry about me darkening your door again. I walked out before the tasting, without trying a single beer or purchasing a single product, and visited (and deeply enjoyed) Cooperstown Brewing Co. instead. I converted many of my friends to Ommegang over the years, but, on one sunny July afternoon, Ommegang lost a devoted and loyal fan for life.
