"I always hate it when I see a place that hasn't had any reviews in years, I know places like this are pretty consistent but it doesn't hurt to put another more recent review up.
This place has some of the greatest beer of all the places I've been. They have the Belgian style down to a science. The Rare Vos is great, the Three Philosophers will get you going, and the Abbey Ale is a staple. I was in for a visit when they were doing taste testing not just of their regular ales but also when they had their Bretty beers and another time when they had their cave-aged beers. Their Bretty beers are great, a nice spin on their regular recipes. The cave-aged beers are superb, I never knew aging this type of beer would make such a big difference, but wow the young and aged beers are totally different in texture and taste. I even tried my hand at it and bought some Three Philosophers and Abbey to age in my very old and cold basement for a few months and they came out great.
I take friends and family here every chance I get to show them not only the process of how beer is made (being a homebrewer myself I love to share the wonders of fermentation) but also to show them that there is great tasting beer out there (not just the MGD and Bud they are used to).
I would recommend, if you can, to go for a tour and tasting in the winter during the off-season... we went there this last February and we were the only visitors there and we got a very in depth tour (more than the other times I've been there with big groups of people packing the place), and the tour/beer guide didn't feel rushed so he took his time going through the taste testing of al their regular brews, their cave-aged brews, and their seasonal brew at that time, and he gave us however much we wanted.
This is a must if you are anywhere near Cooperstown, NY (or even if you are in Syracuse or Albany)...
Their shop has a great variety of their beers in all sorts of mixes, from buying just a single traditional 25 oz bottle or a six pack of 12 oz bottles to a mixed six pack of the 25 oz bottles and great gift boxes with two or three 25 oz bottles and two of glasses to serve it all in. Plus they have cheese dips made with their beers that are great as well... to go with the pretzels and mustards.
and if you are a beer lover don't forget to bring a growler of your own for them to fill, because you'll definitely find at least one beer you'll want to take home (if you don't want to buy a bunch of bottles)... I've forgotten so many times and kick myself each time.
I haven't made it to the Ommefest (usually in september) but plan on it this next year... and they have other events throughout the year.
Rumor has it that they're thinking of putting up a pub at one end of the facility, not sure on this though... but it would be a great addition to this already superb place.
