Brewery Ommegang to Host Bill Murray-Themed Beer Fest in August

(Brewbound.com)

Cooperstown, NY —  Recognized annually as one of the best and must-attend beer festivals in America, on August 5 and 6, 3,000 lucky guests will enjoy the opportunity to taste hard-to-find Belgian import brews as well as Belgian-style ales from all over North America. More than 100 breweries will be on-hand pouring while festival-goers fully immerse themselves in a wild and wonderful space fueled by the legendary actor’s best known movies and characters. Tickets go on sale to the public April 1.

As always, BCTC promises more than just great beer – gourmet food vendors, live music, on-site camping and fireworks make the weekend truly special. And of course, surprises! The entire event will be designed to emulate the creativity and spirit of Bill Murray, and what could be more Murray-like than an “anything is possible” attitude and expectation.

Festivities begin on Friday at 6pm with a five-course beer-pairing dinner for VIP ticket holders. Festival grounds open at noon on Saturday for patrons holding camping tickets. Tasting begins at 2:30 pm for VIP ticket holders and 3 pm for general admission. Tasting ends at 7 pm. Live music runs from 3 pm until midnight. On Sunday morning, breakfast will be served from 8 am until noon. The brewery will be closed to the public Friday and Saturday, August 5 and 6, but reopens for regular service on Sunday, August 7.
