Snommegang Breweries and Bands

It’s been a busy and exciting week at the brewery: announcing details of our new beer Nirvana IPA, announcing a new summer concert featuring Pixies, and finalizing the details for Snommegang, our winter invitational beer festival. Happily though, it’s Friday, Pixies tickets are on sale, and we just printed out the final table sign for the Snommegang breweries. Here’s who’s pouring at the event tomorrow:

While you’re enjoying  delicious beers from these breweries you can enjoy the musical stylings of:
The Woodshed Prophets-a perfect mix of riff-based rock and roll and NY-roots folk music, The Ruddy Well Band-Americana folk and rock with strong harmonies and high energy, Bella’s Bartok-purveyors of a highly danceable brand of pop that borrows from many a direction and incorporates everything, and The Revenuers-playing songs you know and songs you’ll be glad you discovered.

Snommegang is Saturday, February 28 from 2-6 PM on Main Street in Oneonta. The event is open to the public and tickets for the tasting portion of the event are available online for $50 in advance. Tickets at the door are $55. Discounted student tickets are available at the event for $40 (must have a vaild student ID.)

Pixies are coming!

We can’t imagine a better way to kick off Memorial Day weekend than with a cold beer and a concert under the stars on the brewery’s back lawn. Happily, that’s exactly what’s going to happen on May 22 when indie rock legends Pixies with special guests TV on the Radio and John Grant visit the brewery for the first time!

Refreshing Ommegang beer, non-alcoholic beverages, Cafe Ommegang favorites, and local food truck treats will be available for purchase at the event. Bring a chair or a blanket for relaxing on the lawn. And be sure to pack your rain gear if the weather looks iffy.

The Avett Brothers and John Prine

We’ve been dreaming about the 2015 summer concert series since Neutral Milk Hotel’s last song drifted away from the brewery on the breeze in September. We’ve missed the crowds, the music, and the ambiance these past few months so we’re excited to tell you that the first (announced) show of our 2015 summer concert season will pair longtime regional favorites and the massive draw of The Avett Brothers with the consummate songwriter and legend, the one and only, John Prine!

This match-up will happen just twice this summer and will surely never be forgotten. Join us and delight in the Ommegang concert experience, pairing music and craft beer in a perfectly intimate venue under the stars. On-site camping will be available for the first 1000 to purchase camping passes with a general admission ticket. In addition to great beer, there will be plenty of reasonably priced local food options on site. Additional information will be available soon at
