I am somewhat torn over this review. Maybe the winter weather has taken its toll on the brewery, but the buildings themselves were looking a bit tired (as opposed to the pictures on their website).
The tour took about 10 minutes and seemed perfunctory. I understand that maybe The tour is geared towards the novice...so on to the tasting. Six beers were poured (maybe three ozs per) And the individual giving the tasting was quite knowledgeable. Tasting cost $3.00 apiece and we received a souvenir glass.
My wife and I ate at the cafe and the food was okay, but nothing really stood out. My entree actually came to the table cold. Our waiter apologized, took it back to the kitchen, and returned with the same entree which had obviously been microwaved. I was comped one of my beers for my troubles.

Here's the real kicker of the evening, and consequently the primary reason for my low score. My wife purchased a glass of Liefmans Cuvee Brut on tap. Of course I tried a sip and it seemed overly sweet compared to the bottled version which I was quite familiar with. When I mentioned this to the bartender, he said "yeah, I know what you mean. They use the same line when they switch out the Fruitesse. " His cavalier response really threw me. I expected a greater attention to detail from a brewery of Ommegang's caliber. If I lived nearby I would come often to drink at the bar...but for those making the pilgrimage; well I hope your experience is better.

As much as I like the beer from this brewer I need to be critical of their customer service. My wife and I had a trip planned up to the Baseball HOF one weekend in the summer. We carefully laid our itinerary to make sure our trip went smoothly. We wanted to visit this brewery and even went as far to call them to make sure we could bring our underage son on the tour. We told them which weekend we were coming up and even checked the website to make sure we had their hours straight. Well when we got there there was a huge festival that shut down the whole facility. If you didn't pre-buy tickets you couldn't attend. They wouldn't even let us visit the shop to buy a bottle of beer. The employee working the gate simply shrugged their shoulders and told us to come back another weekend. After driving 6 hours to get there this isn't a real option. Now this is where we get really upset. We sent a certified letter to them expressing our dissatisfaction about what happened to us. Even if the website mentioned the festival it would have helped. Well our letter went unanswered. So unfortunately I can't promote this place.
