I'm lucky enough to live in Ithaca--it's about 2 hours away from Ommegang. While you're in C-Town, go to Cooperstown Brewing and Butternuts. When you're here, stop by Horseheads Brewing. They're real small, but they're making some fantastic beers right now, as well. When you get to Ithaca Brewing Co, make sure you pick up some Brute. It's their sour, and it's spectacular. Also, we have the BEST bottle shop in the area, Finger Lakes Beverage. THe owner makes personal trips to NYC, PA, and the surroundings to pick up fresh bottles that would otherwise never find their way up here.
