Me and some of the guys went to Ommegang Brewery near Cooperstown, NY two weeks ago and to say that I had the time of my life would be a huge understatement.
Ommegang is a brewer of one the biggest Belgian beers in the country. It was one of the best times of my life because I’m a beer fanatic! I did the tasting that they had and I tried 5 different beers. We got to smell the hops that the beer is made with and it was so special for me because I have a fanatical passion for craft beer. Going to this brewery only made me a bigger craft beer fan. When we walked into the Ommegang store my face lit up and I was smiling from ear to ear. I was so happy, like you wouldn’t believe!
When we got there and I saw the field of hops my eyes lit up and I was pretty much in beer heaven. We took a tour of the actual brewery and I thought “this day couldn’t get any better right now,” oh but It did. We got to see where the beer is made that was something special for me at least to know how the beer is made and understand the process. We also got to see how the beer is bottled and where it gets transported to. When we were tasting the different types of the Ommegang beers they gave us a glass that we got to keep. I was the only one from our group drinking on the tour but I was fine with that, I kind of figured that’s how it would go because not everybody in our group were as crazy about craft beer as yours truly. Then the tour ended and I really didn’t want the day to end, but I knew it had to and I had one of the best times of my life!!!!!!!
