Wonderful tour -- our guide was friendly, and the tour was exactly as long as it should be. Surprising how small their actual facilities are, but quality over quantity!
Food at their café was excellent, and reasonably priced; paid about $8.50 for an amazing sandwich that went perfectly with their Abbey Ale. To get a flight of three different brews (each 5oz) costs $7.50.
The tasting was lovely, too -- costs $3, and you get a nice souvenir glass from it. You get to try 6 different Ommegang brews, and the staff gives you histories and all sorts of other interesting info. My only complaint about the whole experience was that the tasting was a little bit crowded, which made it hard to get to the palate-cleansers and get fills. The later tastings that I saw were much less crowded, though.
Would recommend going to Brewery Ommegang to absolutely anyone, regardless of their enthusiasm level about beer or brewing.

This establishment is top notch. Founded in 1997, the premise looks like a House of Champagne! Maybe it should be renamed to "House of Ommegang" :P The decor is splendid, the atmosphere is superb. Put it this way: it feels like you are in Europe, in Belgium in fact! The beautiful area of Cooperstown is fantastic. After visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame, I headed here as I love Belgian-style brews, and Ommegang makes them as good as ANY Belgian Brewery. Here, I was able see Ommegang's brewing technique and taste many beers that I would have not found in my local bottle-shop. The cuisine is also amazing. You can't go wrong here!
Here lies the best brewery in America!
