If you want to take a great weekend getaway, this is it. A weekend at The Inn at Cooperstown in NY with a tour and 5 course food and beer pairing at Brewery Ommegang. Friday night at 8 pm we met up in a cozy fire lit room with a bunch of other homebrewers and other beer enthusiasts at the inn. Everyone brought their homebrew or just beer they enjoy to share with all in attendance. Great evening, the inn keeper himself is a homebrewer as well and furnished a good portion of beer for all to enjoy. Saturday, after a great day of taking in rustic Cooperstown, we boarded a trolly which shuttled all to the brewery where after a tour of the brewery we then enjoyed what seemed to be an endless tasting of all their beers including the soon to be released Seduction. Then came dinner, a 5 course pairing with some delicious food in the brewery's restaurant. Bottles of beer just kept showing up on the table, so much that even the trolly ride back to the inn seemed like the brewery on wheels. Both nights we met with and drank well with brewers from Ommegang. They're a terrific group of guys and I would definitely do this again. On top of all this, included in the package, one Jeroboam bottle of abbey ale(over 3 quarts of beer!) two t-shirts, two ommegang glasses, and discount coupons for restaurants in town. Worth every cent!

Sounds like a fun weekend! This reminded me of an article I read a while back on some similar deals:
