From the press release:
Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, The Head and the Heart co-bill on Tuesday, June 5th is the latest addition to 8th Annual Brewery Ommegang Summer Concert Series in Cooperstown 
Tickets on sale Friday, January 26th. 

Nathaniel Rateliff  & The Night Sweats will return with Tearing At The Seams this spring, setting their sophomore album for a March 9 release on Stax Records. They’ve shared soothing lead single “You Worry Me” alongside the announcement—video below.

The Denver-based octet recorded Tearing at the Seams in part with producer Richard Swift (The Shins, Foxygen), with whom they worked on their acclaimed self-titled debut, released in 2015. In his review for Paste, Eric R. Danton called Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats “an engrossing album,” writing that “while the singer and his band are drawing on a classic form, their interpretation makes for an exciting and contemporary sound.”

The Head And The Heart’s 2011 self-titled debut album captured a nascent but undeniable creative partnership between six strangers thrown together by little more than a shared love of music. It became one of Sub Pop Records’ best-selling debut releases ever, and rocketed the band to acclaim well beyond its then-home base in Seattle. The formative experiences that followed both on and off the stage heavily informed the 2013 follow-up “Let’s Be Still.”

When the Head And The Heart regrouped last summer in Stinson Beach, Ca., to start writing together again, “it almost felt like we were a new band, trying things we hadn’t tried,” bassist Chris Zasche recalls.  That renewed sense of purpose can be felt throughout “Signs Of Light,” the group’s first release for Warner Bros. Records. Recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant), “Signs Of Light” crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of the Head And The Heart’s finest work.

BOARDING HOUSE REACH sees Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. Written and conceived while holed up in a spartan apartment with no outside distractions, White replicated the identical environment and used the same gear as when he was a 15 year old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation) to pen sketches of the album’s songs. The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain — crunching rock ‘n’ roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country — all remapped and born anew to fit White’s matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation. BOARDING HOUSE REACH is a testament to the breadth of Jack White’s creative power and his bold artistic ambition.

BOARDING HOUSE REACH is heralded by the rapidly acclaimed new single, “Connected By Love” b/w “Respect Commander,” which is available now digitally worldwide and as a physical 7-inch vinyl single pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit.

“Connected By Love” is accompanied by a brand-new music video from director Pasqual Gutierrez — watch it here. The single was greeted with rapturous global applause upon its arrival, with Billboard declaring the song “a classic White confessional blues burner,” and Entertainment Weekly calling it “a searing, organ-lined plea to a former flame.” NPR’s Bob Boilen wrote, “it’s a blend of old guitar blues that is simultaneously on the edge of rock’s horizon.” “The four-year wait is over,” says Rolling Stone –– Jack is back with the “blistering first single” from BOARDING HOUSE REACH.

Snommegang 2018

Snommegang logo

Our Snommegang Invitational Beer Festival is a celebration of the passionate pursuit of perfection shared by brewers across the country. To celebrate this noble endeavor, we proud to announce that in March 2018, we’ll host Snommegang in two locations: the inaugural Snommegang Lake Placid, and the fifth annual Snommegang Oneonta. For the Oneonta event, we’ll once again partner with America On Tap, the country’s leading producer of premium craft beer festivals, to expand this increasingly popular beer festival this winter in the City of the Hills.

Snommegang Lake Placid is Saturday, March 3 from 2-6 pm at the beautiful High Peaks Resort and will feature some of America’s best breweries, their medal-worthy beers, and hors d’oeuvre stations. Enjoying these delicious beers will be all the better thanks to the breathtaking back drop of Lake Placid, a truly dazzling winter landscape where visitors can experience a one-of-a-kind cross section of awesome beer, delicious food, and world-class alpine sport. Beyond the pour, visitors can enjoy Saturday late-night specials at area bars and Sunday hair-of-the-dog brunch specials around town.

Snommegang Oneonta is Saturday March 10 from 2-6 pm on historic Main Street in Oneonta, NY and will also feature around 30 breweries from across the United States. The beer tasting is accompanied by live music, food and activities – all within heated tents along Muller Plaza and surrounding businesses on Main Street. Music and activities in Muller Plaza are free and open to the public, and tickets are only required for the tasting portion of the event.

Both Snommegang events are for guests age 21+. Tickets for both locations are on sale now. Snommegang Lake Placid tickets are $50 each and available on TicketFly.com. Tickets for Snommegang Oneonta vary in price depending on group size and purchase date. Visit Snommegang.com for more details.

America On Tap Beer Festivals is the first and only national live event series dedicated to showcasing specialty and craft breweries from around the globe, while also delivering authentic, craft beer-focused experiences filled with live music, great vendors, and delicious local food. Ommegang is pleased to continue their partnership America On Tap in 2018.

“As a proud Upstate brewery, we take great delight in celebrating our long, snowy season, embracing the beauty of this winter wonderland,” says Doug Campbell, our brewery president. “To add such a storied location and a fantastic partner as Village of Lake Placid to the Snommegang schedule represents a great evolution of the very strong event we’ve already built with America On Tap in Oneonta.”

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Brewery Ommegang and couldn’t be happier to see the Snommegang Festival expand to an additional location” said Brittany Gilman, Marketing Manager, America on Tap. “The Snommegang festival experience and reputation will only strengthen now with two weekends of overflowing fun and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”

We hope to see you at Snommegang this winter!

Harvest Weekend Experience 2017

Brewery Ommegang and The Farmers’ Museum have teamed up for a Harvest Weekend Experience in the village from Friday, September 15 until Sunday, September 17. The multi-faceted event includes a New York State Farm to Table Dinner at the brewery on Friday night from 6-9:30 PM and a harvest festival at the museum on Saturday and Sunday. The dinner will also serve as the launch event for Hopstate NY 2017, an IPA brewed with 100% NYS-grown hops. Local lodging properties have created packages to host out-of-town visitors for the weekend.

The brewery’s NYS-inspired, grown, and raised dinner is an all-inclusive, three-course, family-style beer pairing experience on the brewery lawn bookended with charcuterie and dessert hours. Guests will have the opportunity to wander in the Ommegang hop yard, and mingle with NYS hop growers and farmers who contributed ingredients for night’s meal. Each course of the meal is paired with a different Ommegang beer including the brand new Hopstate NY 2017. Each guest will also receive a discount voucher for the brewery store for redemption that weekend. Tickets for dinner are $135/person (includes tax) and attendees must be 21+ to attend.

The Farmers’ Museum’s 39th Annual Harvest Festival is a regional favorite, bringing together a wide range of performers, artisans, and exhibitors. Guests will enjoy hands-on activities, artisan demonstrations, live music and dance performances, wagon rides, crafts and more in addition to the museum’s outstanding collections and interpretative exhibits. The festival is from 10 am to 5 pm, each day. Admission is $12/adults (13-64), $10.50 seniors (65+), and $6/children (7-12). Children (6 and under) are free. The event is all ages.

A few local hospitality properties are offering weekend packages for the Harvest Weekend Experience.
