a mecca destination of sorts on the east coast brewery circuit, and a place I cant believe I waited this long to visit. we stopped in sunday for lunch before the further show in cooperstown, and the place was packed with a cool mix of folks from baseball fans to deadheads to bikers, all were in good spirits. we scored two seats at the crowded bar and took awhile to get served, but were happy with the service once we did get noticed. they has all the usual ommegang suspects on tap, plus some of the duvel and liefmans stuff, which were nice treats for us. I loved the ommegang summer beer, and the food was hand crafted and exceptional. home made sausage, Belgian frites with all sorts of beer mustards, ketchups, and sauces, and lam sliders, all were wonderful. prices on the upper end of reasonable, but obviously the demand is there. I was amazed how small the place is, not that its small outright, but I just expected a bigger facility with how far their beers have gotten. ommegang is a world class brewery and a must visit destination. there is a concert venue out back too, I would love to return to see some bands there. our experience here was fantastic, as close to Belgium as you can really come in the united states as far as I am concerned.

Any day at a brewery is a good day. But the meandering through rural Cooperstown scenic byways culminates in a magical entrance onto the Brewery Ommegang's property and easing through the building's breeze way. A mental transforming goes from Upstate New York and into an authenic Belgian getaway.

Along with a guided tour through the brewery and a concluding beer tasting of all six of Ommegang's flagship brands, the newly erected gift shop and cafe further reinforce the the classy and quirky fashions and traditions of true Belgian farmhouses. Modern amenities, lighting, and proportions complement the rural European woodworking, color scheme, and rustic nature well.

The cafe is cozy and spacious at the same time, and tucked through the gift shop. Seating 15-20 at the bar and additional table seating for maybe 30-40 more is ample and void of clutter. Clean lines, tile flooring, polished woods, and sleek stainless steel create a comfortable and modern space for a casual afternoon of beer sippin' and dining.

Of couse the beers of Witte, Abbey Ale, BPA,Rare Vos Hennepin, and Three Philosophers were well on display; but so were Aphrodite, Chocolate Indulgence, Leifmans Framboise and Cuvee, and Duvel Draft. With several bottles from Trappist brewers and other Authenic Belgian Ales from Achouffe and Maredsous, the cafe boasts a concentrated but array of flavors to sample and enjoy without risk of boredom.

Belgian waffels, crepes, frites, stews, sandwiches, and deserts are all available on their extensive food menu, but I opted for the gruyere and white cheddar fondu with apples, artisnal breads, and gormet sausages for dipping-certainly enough for a light lunch among two. Although a bit on the pricey side, the quality makes up for it- still running in the $12-$18 price range for most dishes.

Stopping in just after the lunch crowd, left us with a lot of one-on-one attention with the bar staff and a brewer on break. The conversation lead to a lot of education about the beers and philosophy of the brewery and cafe, so the knowledge of the staff left us very impressed.

No visit to the cafe is complete without a venture through the gift shop where among tee shirts, bar wares, and chouffe statues are all available for purchase- so are artisinal spreads and cheeses that incorporate the brewery's beers.

All this makes for a charming and delightful day at the brewery. The cafe certainly takes the art of making beer into more than just a quick stopover, but is now a destination spot for those who don't want to leave the brewery, but are in fear of wearing out the welcome. Set on a gentle hillside and on a calming estate, it's hard to want to leave the brewery.

This place is beautiful, both inside and out, but of course it starts outside. The impression is instilled that this brewery is a little bit more grandiose than most around as soon as the looming arch with the brewery's name and bookended on the left by "1549" and the right by "1997," decorated in the Winter with holly and a beautiful wreath. The huge fermenting tanks and the barns are something to marvel at between the walk from the parking lot. The entrance is to the gift shop, or so I think of it, which then leads to the restaurant through a door and a tasting room/bar on the back side near where the building is entered. The restaurant is also beautiful, mostly modern but with some older or antique edges to it and a chalkboard stating the drafts on the left wall. Seating is plentiful in a wide-open space, where tables are ready for small or large groups. The service is good and servers are extremely knowledgeable. They're also friendly, not too chatty but very willing to chat about the beer or food, and quick to the table. Along with the taps, they also serve bottles. The food is also some of the best I've eaten at a brewery, the frites served with a choice of several outstanding aiolis, that sort of thing. The quality of the beers they serve is only top-notch. I really can't say too much good about this place. It's the one place I absolutely have to go to when I visit my family in upstate NY.

Went here with the wife and a good friend on a Thursday.

A - A mixture of people hanging at the bar working on quality belgian beer and families at the tables. Not exactly a beer pub atmosphere, but the large tables make for conversation with the locals.

S - We had to wait a bit to get seated, but once we did the waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and everything came in the proper glass. Our food came out promptly. Overall was solid.

S - Plenty of great belgian beers. All the year round Ommegang staples, plus Gnomegang and other belgian imports. I had plenty to choose from.

F - Belgian fair, which is great for this place. Frites, crepes, and fondue. Many items made with their beers. I found this added to the experience.

V - For 3 of us, a fondue, 2 orders of frites, a filled crepe, 2 flights of 3 beers, and 3 pints came to $55. I felt that was reasonable. But being from NY I'm used to an average meal beig pricey.

Overall this was a fun experience. I was looking to try this place for a while. Highly recommended, and 6 miles from the Baseball Hall of Fame.

I think this place is pretty new. When you go thru the entrance, you are in the brewery store. Not huge, but a good selection of glassware, shirts, signs, etc. You can purchase warm bottles of beer only. I tried to get a cold one to go, but I think due to some law in relation to the cafe, they can't allow it.

The cafe is not that large, but it is nice. The bar has about 15 or so seats. There are a half dozen or so pub tables. Then, 2 long communal tables. You order from the bar and they bring your food and drinks to you. A bit chaotic perhaps, but the waiters did a good job and were on top of everything.

Obviously, the beers are Belgian style. Aside from the Ommegang selection, there were was Duvel on tap and others bottled. The prices ranged from $4.50 and up. Of course all was served in the proper glasses, as you would expect.

Finally, the food was good. A larger menu than I thought. Fritis was several choices of dipping sauces. About 10 types of crepes. they also had sandwiches, cheese, etc. All pretty reasonably priced.

Overall, a good time. Nice people and well worth the stop.

I visited a friend in NY during the summer of 2013, and we made the drive up here to visit.

The Atmosphere is beautiful. Unlike most breweries that reside in industrial parks, this brewery is set in the middle of beautiful countryside all by itself. The brewery and it's surrounding area is awesome.

The Quality was great. They serve fantastic beers here.

The Service was perfect. The waitstaff was really friendly, knowledgeable about their beer, and they frequented our table just in time to re-fill our glasses. Top-notch.

The Selection was very good. They offered 1-2 Duvel beers, numerous Ommegang beers, and also a couple from Liefmans. They offered a couple summer-oriented beers that were delicious. I was also able to purchase some beer to go along with a shirt as they had a nice selection of both beer and swag to take with.

They served food that looked great, but we had eaten shortly before stopping. Next time I'd like to eat here.

I greatly enjoyed my visit here, and if I'm ever in the area again, I'll make sure to stop by.

Visited 2 times...Grounds and overall atmosphere were great.. very luxourios and hands down the best looking brewery I've personally been to. Everything in the store and tasting room were nice, clean and very ritsy... good selection of there regular lineup plus they have other beers from there other companys... about $1-$3 cheaper on bottles than local stores but you obviously save a ton by buying cases... diddnt try the food but selection and price were on par with similar resturants... nothing crazy... high priced on things like bottle openers, growlers(empty) and the little knick knacks... busy ss hell both times we went... and both times we arrived 45 min before the tasting start and it was sold out and thus we waited for an additional 45 minutes..for a place like that they can have on like 1 or 2 more staff members to assist and make things run smoother... world clsss yes and a must visit

I traveled to Cooperstown this last week for a tour, and afterwards stopped by the Cafe Ommegang for lunch. The cafe seems to be fairly new, and is decorated beautifully. Very colorful, w/ the reminder that you're in a brewery that's owned by Duvel. The service i had was fantastic. Advice when I wanted it, and very attentive while I was there. The selection of food and beer was really good of course. The menu generally features Belgian style faire, and my meal/dessert was amazing. In addition to Ommegang's brews, there are several from Belgium/Duvel as well. Duvel on draft of course. Prices were also pretty reasonable for what you got. I was extremely happy w/ my visit to the Cafe, and have been raving about it to anyone who will listen ever since.

I've been to ommegang brewery twice before before the cafe opened, so this was my first time eating there. First off, the food prices are very reasonable. A plate of pei mussels for $10 I thought was a good deal no matter where you go. I felt his way before ordering and after receiving our food, my opinion was only solidified. A heaping pile of mussels that could rival anywhere else. The frites and the dipping sauces were amazing. My wife had the seafood chowder and a friend had chicken and waffles. Both were excellent. They had a full a ray of their beers on tap along with with other beers from Belgium. Those same beers were available in the gift shop. This was a great experience for us and look forward to going back, wished it was closer.

Wow the food was so good at the cafe and to pair it with Ommegang beer is awesome. The menu is very Belgian inspired with Mussels and Frites, Cheese Plate, and other beer cooked food items. Really clean and sharp looking inside, big bar, high def tv, and long tables. I would make this place a destination for the combination of good food and good beer. I think they have 6 or so beers on tap and a guest beer or 2 in the mix. I wish I lived closer to Ommegang because I could see this place becoming my fave local bar.
Cheers

I drove about 200 miles here from NJ because one of my coworkers whose favorite session beer is Rare Vos told me that visiting Brewery Ommegang was on his semi-bucket list of things he wanted to prior to leaving NJ. I also dragged a friend of mine that lives in Philly because his gf had gone home for thanksgiving break and had nothing else to do. The end result? I ended up driving 3.5 hours both ways while all the two of them did was talk about the online game League of Legends non-stop. It would have been nice if they would have offered to drive for a few hours or minutes, or even maybe chip in for gas. But hey, I guess life isn't perfect.

My friends and I left at the crack of dawn to get to Brewery Ommegang around 10am. The Brewery itself is out in the middle of nowhere outside of Cooperstown on what looks like an abandoned farmstead converted into a brewing facility. The facilities are very well decorated and organized -- you walk up to the sales counter and pay for a tour/tasting which starts every 15 minutes, wait either outside or inside the store where they offer all of their year-round brews and whatever seasonal is available at the time; and then a tour guide leads you on a very informative 20 or so minute tour around the facilities after which you come back into the store front for the tasting.

We didn't get to sample the food here because the wait for the cafe was ungodly, but my friend was able to replenish on all his three major food groups here at the brewery store (beer, cheese, and pickles); whereas i was disappointed that even after the long drive back I couldn't find some of Ommegang's harder to find selections, they did sell everything at much cheaper than retail price (or maybe it's just NJ/PA that overprices everything) and they did have some harder to find offerings when I went such as Chocolate Indulgence and Call of the Wild.

All in all a very enjoyable experience, but it probably helps immensely if you're an Ommegang fan or have never been to a brewery before. Other than that, the brewery experience here isn't exactly magical or life-changing, but excellent, nonetheless.

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.

Café Ommegang at the Ommegang Brewery outside of Cooperstown is worth a side trip in and of itself, even aside from the brewery. It's in the visitor's center / tasting room / brewery shop complex behind the brewery, and man is it good.

The atmosphere at Café Ommegang is good: the lighting is comfortable, the tables and chairs are nice, the decorations are interesting and whatnot, and it's a decent-sized space. It felt a little cold and empty when I was there, but I could imagine the place being excellent when traffic picks up a bit. Also, service at the café was excellent. The hostess was friendly and helpful, and the waiter was very helpful, as well. Great service, actually.

As may be expected at a place like the Café Ommegang, the selection was good, but not "excellent," per se. They had a number of fantastic taps and bottles, but of course it was all Ommegang, Duvel, Maredsous, Liefmann's, Brasserie d'Achouffe and De Konnick. Not exactly the place you'd go for a Miller Lite, or a Lagunitas on tap for that matter, either. If you're there, you're expecting good Belgian beer–probably connected to the Duvel family–and that's exactly what you get. On that note, that's exactly what they've got, and lots of it. I think they had 8 taps there, including the standard Ommegang line-up (plus Aphrodite!) plus Duvel "classic" and "Green," and one or two Liefmann's on tap, as well. Everything else they've got in bottles, but they've got plenty of it! The quality of the beer there is unreal. So, so good, and fresh as can be. Definitely the place to go if you're looking for any of the above-mentioned Belgian beers, and since Ommegang and the Duvel family are so wide-ranging in terms of style and taste, they've got plenty for just about everyone.

This is all well and good, but the food absolutely cannot be overlooked! The food is excellent, and they do have a number of vegetarian options (though, sadly, gluten free and vegan options are hard to find). They've got traditional Belgian food (check out the Ommegang website for a pdf of the menu there), plus meat and cheese plates, and desserts. Waffles and crepes, both sweet and savory, top-notch cheeses with a variety of tasting accompaniments on the side (like honeycomb, gherkins pickled radishes to accompany an aged goat cheese I had there), wonderful soups and stew, and inventive desserts like their fried crepe sundae with Three Philosophers ice cream and chocolate sauce. I mean, honestly.

And finally, the value is reasonable, I'd say. You can spend a few dollars, definitely, but what you're getting is fantastic: both the beer and food you're receiving–via excellent service, I might add–will leave you satisfied and wondering when you can get back. I'm still drooling over that cheese plate and the tomato bisque I had with my Houblon Chouffe. So yeah, the value is really quite good, when you consider what you're getting for your money.

In short, Café Ommegang is great. It's a great value for what they've got there, and they really aren't skimping anywhere. I personally can't wait to go back, and enjoyed it at least as much as the brewery tour (which I've done four times now, I believe) and the gift shop (which has grown, and is definitely the cheapest (and freshest) place to get Ommegang and Duvel family products). Go to Café Ommegang, plan on having at least one meal, and enjoy yourself!

I thought the prices were a little on the higher end but i was very satisfied with their beer. They had lots of great beers and the staff is very knowledgeable. This has now become must go when ever i am in the area.

Had the opportunity to spend some time at the Ommegang Cafe on three consecutive days while visiting Cooperstown. If you're in the area, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Parking right next to the cafe is very limited, and will fill up quickly. But their is extended parking out in a field in an adjacent lot, just a short 3 minute walk from the cafe, so if you can't find parking at the cafe you aren't out-of-luck.

Don't necessarily go by the Cafe hours as printed on the website. During my visit, the website said hours were 12-5, but at the door they were actually opening at 11. Because of this, I'd recommend calling and inquiring if the hours on the website aren't to your liking.

Atmosphere: The place was always busy. All the time. But nobody seems hurried/rude, like you'll see at other crowded bars. Giant oak tables, seating 6 on all fours sides, cover the floor of the cafe, so if you aren't at the bar you will almost certainly be seated with some strangers, and possibly make some new friends. There's two seperate sections of outdoor seating: one rectangular tent, with traditional pull-out chairs and metal tables from which waitresses will serve you food, and the other a large rounded tent furnished with larger/softer patio furniture. You're responsible to get your own beers from the bar while seated in the rounded tent, which is something I rarely mind.

Quality: Top-notch. Glassware is always clean and pristine. Beers are served at proper temps. My entire family never once noticed a bad poor from a bad line. These are all things you'd expect... and expectations are met.

Service: Exceptional. The waitresses have to work hard to keep up with the crowds, but they do the best they can. They had unique/original opinions on both the food and beer menus, and were very attentive regarding placing "the next round".

Selection: If I were to make any criticism at all, it was that the selection, while very good, didn't have much of anything *rare* or *hard-to-find* from Ommegang or the larger Duvel family. As others have said, Duvel owns Ommegang, and as such, the beer menu is limited 10 drafts and about 30 other bottles, all of which come from the Duvel family of beers (Ommegang, Duvel, Maredsous, De Koninck, Achouffe, and Liefman's, if my memory is correct). Being familiar with most of these breweries/lines, it was a fairly short list of offerings that I hadn't had before. However, I'm a huge fan of Ommegang, have always been a fan of Duvel, Maredsous and Achouffe, and became a fan of Liefman's because of this visit, so an afternoon spent with a list of 30ish beers from them is a good afternoon in my book.

Food: The food was all very good. We ate lunch here three days in a row. We sampled a variety of appetizers, we ordered a couple of different soups, we had a couple sandwiches, ect, and only one of the many things we tried did we feel was subpar.

As far as value, I don't think anyone that knows anything about Ommegang/Duvel was expecting "dollar drafts" or anything like that. The price isn't cheap, but after three consecutive visits I never once felt like my bill didn't properly reflect my level of satisfaction.

A highly-recommended stop while visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame.

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!

Ommegang is a gem. From rolling up the driveway to the store, tasting room, and cafe, even the bathrooms, Brewery Ommegang is as aesthetically pleasing as can be. Staff are friendly, there's music playing, and obviously, plenty of beer - both for purchase and for consumption on site.

The beer Ommegang makes is world-class, and the fact that they have all of their sister companies (Duvel, Liefmans, Chouffe, Maredsous) only increases your options.

Service is awesome. Both in the cafe and store, these people know their beer. Food in the cafe comes out quick despite the cafe being jam-packed.

Selection is not vast, its only Ommegang and Duvel family brands, but those brands are all awesome, and the reasoning here is understandable.

Food is the best yet. I haven't tried it all, but I assume it's all awesome. The frites are fantastic, as is the strawberry arugula salad, and probably everything else.

The prices aren't too bad, just not dirt cheap.

Skip the hall of fame, head to Ommegang.

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.

Best damn brewery in the U.S. in my book. A very special quad, 3 Philosophers, my favorite dubbel, and in walked Hennipen, what a beer. I also love the Winter Adoration Ale among others. What a bright beer that is. Art of Darkness another nice choice.

Don't forget to check out some of my favorite glassware too.

I think the first thing that anyone needs to know going in is that Brewery Ommegang is committed to their Belgian constitution. You will NOT find hoppy beers and cheeseburgers here. I drove out for the day to get an early release of Fire and Blood red ale. Although my initial opinion of the beer was not a great one, it was nonetheless unique. My only complaint was the tour. Our guide flew through it. It was not entertaining and it was hard to feel involved; but it was free so what can I really complain about. During the tasting they offered an assortment of dips and spreads that were all made with their beer, which were fantastic. We had lunch in their cafe. Perfect bar atmosphere, lots of space, and the food was superb. The food and beer are a little expensive, but if you've ever bought an Ommegang brew you know what you're getting yourself into.

Cafe Ommegang is located in the vister center beyond the beautiful arched entry of the brewery. The gift shop carrys all the Ommegang stable of beers and an occasional special selection. I say the selection is good simply because the all the Ommegang beers are at the very least decent plus they have Duvel, Maredsous, Liefman's, and Chouffe. The Cafe has many of the beers on tap. There are several large tables for seating plus some smaller raised tables running around the perimeter of the room. The bar is large with seating for 15 or so patrons. The food is generally outstanding. There are a variety of crepes, soups, cheese/cracker/meat trays, fondue, frites, and waffles. The only down side being the concrete floor that negatively affects the acoustics of the room. Still it is well worth the trip for great beer and a quality lunch/early dinner if you are visting the Cooperstown area.
