“Lance’s Brewery Tour” will visit Brewery Ommegang from 3 to 5:30 p.m. today as part of a national tour for a book and film of the same name. 

Lance Rice, an autistic beer expert, and Aaron Rice, Lance’s nephew and director of “Lance’s Brewery Tour,” will visit the Cooperstown brewery for a tour and tasting, which will be filmed as part of a documentary.
