Drove to Cooperstown from Syracuse to visit Brewery Ommegang.
Did the brewery tour, tasting, shopped in gift shop, and ate/drank in the Café.
The café had recently been opened/renovated from what I was told. We sat at the bar which was very nice. The atmosphere of the café was excellent: dim, large heavy wooden tables, chalkboards in the back with Brewery events and seasonal brew details, along with tasteful beer art (wooden Maredsous signs, etc.)
Beer selection was excellent: a variety of usual Ommegang brews, Duvel, Maredsous 6 and 8, and a few Chouffe taps.
The food menu had an excellent selection with a wide variety.
I had the house oysters and a La Chouffe and Ommegang Three Philosphers. My girlfriend had Ommegang Hennepin and we shared some ice cream. The ice cream was some sort of roasted coffee caramel something. I can't remember exactly but it was great!
Service was good, the bartenders were a little hard to get a hold of for another beer at times despite not being very busy. But one was able to stand and talk beer for a few minutes when it slowed down, which was nice. We were given a heads-up that the food would take a little bit longer than usual because they only had one chef working, which we did not mind at all, we were just happy to be there enjoying our beer.
Definitely worth a trip out to visit Brewery Ommegang and the Café. I had a blast and will definitely remember the experience fondly now that I have moved back to Texas and most likely won't be able to visit again.

Nestled in beautiful Cooperstown, NY is Ommegang. My family did a brewery tour here a few years ago and were blown away by the attention to detail and the brewing process in general. It was out first brewery tour and a damn good way to start. The tasting room is where the magic was poured. We sampled 4-5 of their mainstays and bought a few 750 ml bottles to go. I'd recommend that anyone within 5 hours drive (NYC, Boston, Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, Albany, etc.) of this brewery go and visit. Skip the baseball hall of fame and go right for this world class brewery. I can't wait to go back. You'll have more fun in a larger group of 5-8 people. Share the beers they generously pour and everyone will have a great time.
