I brought my family and everyone loved it. The tour was quick but the guide was great and added to the whole experience. The only bad thing was deciding which beers to take home!

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.

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!

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.

The best brewery I've visited. The grounds are beautiful and hosts many events each summer. Brew house tours are popular and very informative. The folks there treat everybody very well. And, the food in the cafe is exceptional.
