Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2007 (Ommegang's "Smaller is Better" event)

I don't know about you, but after reading Ommegang's "new rules" for this year's Belgium Comes To Cooperstown event in Cooperstown, NY, I'm even more stoked than I was before the announcement was made. What am I talking about? Well, tickets are on sale, and you better take action if you want a piece of the, uh, action. Sales will be strictly limited this year, with the VIP tickets likely to be the hottest buy. Go check out the details and come back to finish up. Done? Now see? Am I right or am I right? If you took the time to read the details, just think about it...I don't believe they're wrong. It is a good deal. Weekend camping on the premises, Friday night dinner, Saturday afternoon festival, brewery tour, bottle of Ommegeddon and accompanying glassware, and probably some other goodies that I'm leaving out. All this in a more controlled, less overcrowded environment for enjoying some of the best and hardest to find beer out there, especially from Belgium. Don't you just love their title? Smaller, in this case, is indeed better! So, as you can tell, my suggestion is to make a weekend of it. Get the VIP tickets while they last. If you go up on Friday morning, you might be able to spend some time at the Baseball Hall of Fame, approximately 5 miles away in downtown Cooperstown. Oh, and by the way, if there's any doubt that this is one of this country's top beer events of the year, check out our material from last year's installment. Have any questions?

Jackie (my wife) and I are planning on going this year. I think we will be ordering tickets tomorrow after we confirm a few more details with work and all. I am excited for the Ommegeddon... we tried it at the Tria beer and cheese tasting earlier this year and loved it!

I can't guarantee you'll have a good time, but, if you don't there might be something wrong with you ;-)

Seriously, why does it have to be in July? I can't wait!

Bryan said...

That's great to hear that J&J are gonna go too. The more friendly faces the better! It truly is a premier event!

Adam, you and I will have to push our enthusiasm into a lot of teaser posts in these next 80 days leading up to BCTC 2007!


Adam said...

Agreed, but, how often can we write stuff like.

"Ommegang BCTC Rocks!"

I figure about 3 times a day ;-)

Bought VIP tickets for Jeremy & I today. I think we should all get TEAM BREW LOUNGE t-shirts for the trip.
