Belgian beer from Brewery Ommegang

ommegang gift pack

Not just beer -- Ommegang beer.

On day five of AOA's holiday gift guide -- a little holiday cheer.

What?
The 2008 gift pack from Cooperstown's Brewery Ommegang: three 750 ml bottles (one Hennepin, one Three Philosophers and one Chocolate Indulgence Stout), plus a special Ommegang glass.

Who it's for?

You're kidding, right? Pretty much any beer lover would flip for this. Ommegang is some of the smoothest, best tasting beer we've ever had. If you can't find someone to give it to, we'd like to remind you that we've been very good this year.

How much?

$25.99

Where can you get it?

You can take a trip to the brewery, (656 County Highway 33 in Cooperstown) or
call them at (800) 544-1809. Some items are available on line, but this doesn't seem to be one of them. In any case, the virtual store isn't the easiest thing to maneuver.

Tip:

If you're ordering for the holidays, do it soon. They can't guarantee delivery before Christmas on orders placed after December 16th.

If not this, what?

Ommegang lets you create your own gift basket by selecting from their beers, Belgian chocolates and glassware. Baskets start at $25.99.

Cheers.

This is a FANTASTIC gift for a beer-lover, but if you purchase it online, make sure that the recipient lives in New York and that you have a New York license-- there are restrictions on shipping. I learned the hard way when I wanted to send this pack to someone as a gift earlier this year, and cried a little as a result.

(So in short, you're going to have to drive it directly to my house to give it to me.)

Where is it in the store? I'm having trouble finding it.

I actually don't see any gift baskets online (but i do see now where it said above this wasn't online)

After seeing your suggestion I was on the phone with them this morning. The woman told me, "You're the most articulate person who's ever called to place an order here..."

Dang nammit looks like tha devil is temptin me again with that evil juice of his, get outta ma computer devil! Curse u! I demand dat u b gone and stop possessin ma internets!

Oliver's beverage on Colvin Ave has a few of the packs too. Great gift!

The insane amount of lakes we have. When I left this area for a bit I was so confused that I couldn't just drive for 10-15 minutes and find a lake.
