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. (1,462 characters)

There's not enough that can be said about how good Ommegang is. Their beers are legendary, but the brewery itself is gorgeous, right in the middle of upstate New York, and their grounds are just lovely no matter what time of year you visit. Their menu is splendid as well and their selection in their gift shop is stellar. Go here! (331 characters)

Went here last winter. Overall the vibe is excellent. The brewery sits on an old farm. Tour was standard, but our guides were very knowledgeable. Tasting proved excellent, with many different varieties on tap. Good variety for sale as well. The bar/restaurant is also very clean and new. Food was good for a brew-pub. (317 characters)

Went for a summer concert, cool experience. Great idea offering camping at the brewery.
Reasonable prices as far as food and drinks. (132 characters)

Have done the tasting tour twice. Both times, was fantastic! A bit disappointed that there wasn't too much variety in their brews for sale at the brewery itself outside of their year-round offerings. Overall, a great tour and operation. (236 characters)

This brewery is a great place to visit. It is in a beautiful part of New York and is on a old hop farm. I have been lucky enough to see some great live music there as well. One of my favorite visits was when my wife's mother was in town from Omaha. We had the pleasure of introducing her to some great Belgium style beers and to top it off saw two amazing performances from Arlo Guthrie and the late Levon Helm. This is a true gem of a brewery! (444 characters)
