The grounds at Ommegang are top notch. Beautiful fields and surrounding woods. Hop vines, classic Belgian farmhouse architecture and gardens. Tap room can be busy, and seemed understaffed when I was there but excellent selection of beers, including selections from breweries under the Duvel umbrella, Lindemann's, Maradeous, and A'Chouffe. They have a great merchandise section. Solid food and so close to the Baseball Hall of Fame you can surely fill a couple of days in the area. This is a must visit beer traveler.

Fantastic beer and great people. The witte is an easy drink for those not as adventurous. The Hennepin (Saison style) and Rare Vos (Amber Ale) are more complex and interesting and then there is Abbey Ale, Three Philosophers for true beer enthusiasts. If wanting to visit consider going in the summer when they have a concert. We attended the Cake concert there in June '12 and had a blast. Definitely in the middle of nowhere and finding a place to stay in the summer time will cost you (Cooperstown baseball tourism drives up the cost. It is a beautiful area of New York and Ommegang is like an oasis worth visiting!

Stopped on the way to NH. We were really pressed for time so we couldn't go on the tour or hang out. We were hungry so we decide to get something quick to eat. Belgian beers are typically not my style but they paired well with the cheese soup we had. They have a gift shop where you can buy the usual offerings. We purchased a few bottles & a heavy duty bottle opener. I'd like to stop here again when we have time to take the tour.

Ommegang is an interesting brewery located near Cooperstown, and is a very worthwhile stop for anyone in the area. I was there over the summer, and it was very crowded so we didn't go on a tour.

Even while tasting, people were lined several layers deep at the bar. It was a bit overly hectic, and made the whole process less enjoyable than it could have been. The beers, though, were all good and interesting. I'd just suggest visiting on a day when it isn't going to be as crowded.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

Finally had a chance to visit Ommegang! Very cool brewery. A couple points of interest in the brewing process-

The primary is an open fermentation process in the traditional Belgian style. Before being transferred to the secondary, they top harvest the yeast. The beer is then lagered at 32deg F for two weeks- rather unusual for an ale. At this point, it's back to the basics- warm the beer, add the harvested yeast and sugar, and bottle condition.

Both the store and cafe offered all of the Ommegang beers plus a sampling of their "sister" beers from other Duvel owned breweries. Very nice selection.

The food was good, but rather pricey. The service was great, but being the end of November, it wasn't very busy. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly.

A very cool and very different brewery located in rural upstate NY. Brewing based on Belgian styles. Not my most favourite styles of beer, but what they do here they do very well. The tour was free and the guides were very knowledgeable, especially regarding what makes them different from other breweries as well as about the history of the company. It was also nice because the tour group was relatively small so it was easy to ask questions.

Well this brewery doesn't need to be propped up. It is Ommegang! The day I was there it was crowded and can get cramped in the tasting room.

Great little tour with plenty of samples of all there styles afterwards. It has a nice gift shop with all the Belgian beer six packs, four packs and 750ml bottles. Also t-shirts, glasses including the "Duvel Tulip"

It located outside of Cooperstown so it would be a nice side trip if visiting the BB hall of fame.
