Stopped by last summer on my way through the area - after the Baseball HOF. Set on beautiful farmland, made to resemble an old Belgian farm house. FREE tours, every hour or so. Wonderful gift shop with chocolates, brews, glassware, apparel, etc. To my dismay, much of the equipment was being cleaned... in between brews. The tasting room was neat. Staff was very friendly. Worth the visit if you are in the area.
Went to Ommegang the other day while passing through the region. It was easy to find with the "Brewery Ommegang" signs at every turn from when you get off the highway. Very nice building, and super friendly staff. At the end of the tour you get to sample all of their available beers. I wish I lived in the area to take advantage of the big events they have here a few times a year. I agree with someone else who posted below, that it would beautiful during the foliage season.
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.
one of the most beautiful breweries if not the most beautiful in the US. if you go in the fall when the leaves are changing its unbelieveable. then there is beer inside. a bit off the beaten path but if in the area a must.
Got a very nice tour. Our (very attractive young lady) tour guide answered every question she could and made sure she got the answers to those she didn’t know. We got all teh tases and sample at the end that we wanted, perhaps as an inducment to buy stuff (it worked).
Everyone we encountered here was friendly and seemed eager to please. Looking for ward to going back again

Very idealic setting for a brewery. Excellent free tour with samples at the end. Worth seeking out if you are anywhere nearby.

Very cool brewery tour, free and they pretty much cater to whenever you show up. Set in a big field, the scenery is awesome. If you are going to the baseball hall of fame, go here too!
Good tour with an amiable young dude. It was BCTC weekend, so there was a sense of mayhem everywhere. The festival was fantastic despite the abusive heat. The beers are available warm or cold on the cheap and the store is pretty good for a brewery off the beaten path. The employees and volunteers at the fest really busted ass making the best of an almost out of control situation.
This was my first brewery tour so I don’t know what to compare it to. The building was small but nice to see. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and helpful. You get to try the whole lineup, which isn’t very long. The food there is basically cheese... yay. Despite being in the middle of nowhere it was fun.
