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.

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.
