Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2014

We are really excited that tickets for “Belgium Comes to Cooperstown” 2014 go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday, April 1) at noon! BCTC is our annual celebration of Belgian and Belgian-style beer, food, music, and all-things-fun. BCTC is August 8 and 9 at the brewery (which will be closed to the public on those days) and we’re transforming the grounds into “Sin City” for a Vegas-themed event.

Tickets will be available through,, or by clicking the link on our Facebook event page.

A new feature we’ve added this year is a Game of Thrones Experience. While we JUST released Fire and Blood Red Ale, this experience at BCTC gives guests the first chance to receive a bottle of our not-yet-named fourth Game of Thrones-inspired ale, slated for release in fall 2014. This experience also includes a commemorative Game of Thrones glass, and your photo on a replica of the Iron Throne from the show.  This experience is included in all VIP ticket packages, and a limited number of upgrades will be available for General Admission and General Admission + Camping ticket holders.

VIP tickets sell out very fast, and all other tickets typically sell out the day they go on sale.  If you get a VIP ticket, the Iron throne is yours! If you are joining us with a General Admission or General Admission + Camping ticket, you will have a chance to upgrade your ticket during check out for only $25.

If you’ve been part of BCTC in the past, we hope you’ll join us again. If you are new to BCTC, we promise it’s an experience unlike any other. It’s not the biggest beer festival in the world, but it’s the most beautiful and the most fun.

Here are videos from BCTC 2011 and BCTC 2012 to get you pumped for the event. Good luck with ticket purchases tomorrow and don’t forget to “join” the event to be looped in for BCTC details.

    I am unfortunately (as I’m sure many are) looking for one Camping/Tasting Ticket for BCTC 2014 for a good friend of mine that regretibly was stuck at work around noon today when tickets went on sale. I made it perfectly clear to him how fast the tickets sold but the jam he got in at work was unavoidable. We have a hotel booked the night before and several other arrangements etched in stone that were money out of pocket, figuring him securing a ticket was not going to be an issue. I know how hot this event is but by some act of God a ticket becomes available please let me know. Not only do I not want him to lose money on the arrangements we already spent on but I also would not want him to miss such an incredible beer festival. Any info on a possible ticket that becomes available would be greatly appreciated. My email again is Thank you & Cheers!

      Hi, Mike. Sorry to hear your friend wasn’t able to get a ticket. Here are some ideas to help him find one:
      Post on the BCTC event page ( and on beer forums like Rate Beer and BeerAdvocate that you’re looking for a ticket.
      Keep posting! Plans change and every year we see people looking to sell their tickets because they are no longer able to attend.
      Volunteer to work at the event. It doesn’t allow for camping but at least he could attend BCTC with the group. Email for volunteer information and do it soon! Volunteer slots fill up fast.
      Hope that helps.
