Beer Event: Belgium Comes To Cooperstown, Day 2 (Morning)
2006 Belgium Comes To Cooperstown Festival It would be nice if I could accurately describe to you the beauty of waking up on Ommegang's farm-like property during a weekend-long beer festival. I'll try, but I'll probably come up a bit short. So, here goes. I wake up and wander out of our RV around 8am. Adam follows shortly behind. We look out over the rolling property. It's a bit damp, and it actually turns to a light rain after an hour or so. Fortunately, we were able to get the large screened-in tent erected just in time for the rain. The RV is spot-cleaned and the sixtel of Sierra Nevada is checked and adjusted. Bagels, fruit, coffee, gatorade, water are all in order. That doesn't last long though as the real breakfast of champions, Brooklyn's Black Chocolate Stout, is poured to give us an excellent start to the festivities about to begin. More later today as time (and connection) permits.....
