Following up with my post yesterday on the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, I thought I’d show some of the fine beers one can get that are brewed right in Cooperstown.

There’s the Cooperstown Brewing Company which features a number of beers with baseball themes such as the Nine Man Ale, Old Slugger Pale Ale, and Benchwarmers Porter (all pictured).  If you look closely you can notice the bottle caps of these beers are little baseballs.  If you hit up a bar/restaurant in Cooperstown which has these brews on tap, you will notice the tap handles are tiny baseball bats.

There’s also Brewery Ommegang: "Based on traditional Belgian farmhouse architecture and set on a former
hop farm in upstate New York, Brewery Ommegang was born with the
philosophy that truly unique ales must be built from the ground up."  The two bottles pictured are the Rare Vos Amber Ale and the Three Philosophers Quadrupel.  I haven’t tasted either of the Ommegang brews yet, but have sampled some of the baseball ales and enjoyed them quite a bit.
