I recently traveled to Cooperstown, NY with Gator to visit Brewery Ommegang.

Ommegang, which began brewing Belgian-style ales in 1997, started up in a purpose-built building based on a traditional Belgian farmhouse, set on a former 136 acre hop farm in the Susqehanna River Valley, four miles south of Cooperstown, New York in the Town of Middlefield.

After filling some growlers and grabbing some "750's" at the gift shop, we ventured downtown and imbibed at some local establishments. We passed a Chinese restaurant called Foo Kin John. I toyed with the notion of stopping in and demanding a "Foo Kin egg roll", but opted for a burger elsewhere.

Whilst in Cooperstown - "a drinking town with a baseball problem" - we also paid a visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

It was a great trip. I wish that I had more photos, but there were camera issues.
Oh well.
