Brewery Ommegang

Brewery Ommegang, between Milford and Cooperstown, New York. October 2012.

When the tree leaves’ colors change, when Americans ready for Thanksgiving holiday and the mad rush of a Christmas season, my thoughts always turn to a few singular brewers. These brewers produce the quality I demand on my holiday table. Brewery Ommegang is one such brewer. Although this photo is from 2012, we first discovered this brewery a few years after it opened in 1997.

Ironically, there’s a fair chance an Ommegang beer will not grace our holiday fest. Two 750ml bottles of Chimay Grande Reserve await, plus a bottle of Unibroue’s La Fin du Monde (which seems an appropriate beer for our times). Then again… (says the thirsty avaricious one)…

One thought on “Brewery Ommegang

  1. The other brewer which springs to mind in holiday times is Lost Abbey in northern San Diego County. It bears a whole post, but who would care except for beer hounds like myself?
