Most people think of baseball when Cooperstown, New York comes up in a conversation. After all, this is where "baseball was invented" and is home to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Beer lovers, however, will refer to Cooperstown as the U.S. home of Belgian beer. Duvel Moorgat USA, based in the picturesque town in upstate New York imports Belgian brands Duvel, Brasserie d'Achouffe, and Maredsous. It also houses brewery Ommegang, where over a half dozen different Belgian-style ales are crafted.

The good people of Duvel and Ommegang invited a small group to Michael's Genuine Food & Drink for a five-course pairing dinner.

Chef de cuisine Bradley Herron was tasked with creating dishes to work with each ale. Herron told diners that though he worked carefully on the right flavor profiles for each dish, he preferred to let us taste and talk amongst ourselves. With that, the first course was served.
