Belgium Comes to Cooperstown offers 3,000 lucky guests the opportunity to taste the very best Belgian beer in the world, including hard-to-find Belgian imports as well as Belgian-inspired beers from the top breweries in North America.
The Ommegang, for which the brewery is named, is a renowned festival in the city of Brussels, Belgium. The first Ommegang welcomed Emperor Charles the Fifth to the city, and the celebration is still held annually. While the emperor won’t be in attendance in Cooperstown this year, nearly 100 Belgian and Belgian-style breweries will be, each pouring their best offerings against the idyllic backdrop of the brewery, which was itself modeled after farmstead breweries found in Belgium. As always, the festival promises more than just great beer. Gourmet food vendors, live music, and a chance to camp under the stars alongside some of the world’s leading brewers and fellow craft beer enthusiasts make the weekend truly unique. The festivities begin Friday, August 3 at 6p.

Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure
October 6 | 8am-11am | Empire State Plaza | LEARN MORE
A comment Neighbor Services often hears is from those, in some way, affected by cancer; currently fighting, currently surviving, or currently supporting someone in the fight. And that comment is how our goat milk products have been one of the only things to soothe the skin after radiation or chemo. We’ve heard how soap and water were unbearable, but our face wipes helped clean without hurting. We have heard that our whipped body cream brought unfathomable relief to exceptionally dry and cracked skin.
When we were presented the opportunity to partner with Susan G. Komen, it seemed like the right fit for us and our neighbors. We encourage you to join Team Beekman, either in person or virtually, in the fight against breast cancer.
