Ommegang tour was great!
Made it up to Oneonta/Cooperstown yesterday/today. We went to Old Slugger in Milford (a nice little local brewery worth checking out) when we got in to town yesterday as we missed the last Ommegang tour by 5 minutes!
Nevertheless, we got to Ommegang today and it was a great tour and tasting. Knowledgeable guide, nice tasting room, samples of their mustards and cheese with pretzels, and six of their tasty brews too.
The whole brewery was quite nice- giftshop, the actual brewery (smaller than I imagined), the employees, etc.
What impressed me though, which I did not expect, is how picturesque their setup is. The countryside, the "farmhouse" design of the brewery itself... not a bad place to spend a few hours.
I highly recommend the tour if you are anywhere close to Cooperstown!
FYI they also have a Scotch Ale coming out soon... they just bottled it up and have to wait a couple weeks for it to condition before they distribute it. They had two bottles out I tried to purchase, but no go. So be on the lookout for that.
