Following up with my post yesterday on the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, I thought I'd show some of the fine beers one can get that are brewed right in Cooperstown.

There's the Cooperstown Brewing Company which features a number of beers with baseball themes such as the Nine Man Ale, Old Slugger Pale Ale, and Benchwarmers Porter (all pictured).  If you look closely you can notice the bottle caps of these beers are little baseballs.  If you hit up a bar/restaurant in Cooperstown which has these brews on tap, you will notice the tap handles are tiny baseball bats.

There's also Brewery Ommegang: "Based on traditional Belgian farmhouse architecture and set on a former
hop farm in upstate New York, Brewery Ommegang was born with the
philosophy that truly unique ales must be built from the ground up."  The two bottles pictured are the Rare Vos Amber Ale and the Three Philosophers Quadrupel.  I haven't tasted either of the Ommegang brews yet, but have sampled some of the baseball ales and enjoyed them quite a bit.

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
