Brewery Ommegang opened in 1997 to craft-brew fine Belgian-style ales. Ommegang brews eight ales year-round, as well as an extensive and imaginative range of seasonal and specialty ales. Their brews have won a national following by beer connoisseurs and are distributed in 43 states and internationally. Ommegang is located on a 136-acre farmstead in Cooperstown, NY that offers free daily tours and inexpensive tastings as well as a well-stocked brewery store and an annual calendar of public events. The 100-seat Cafe Ommegang offers a menu featuring Belgian-inspired delights and many locally grown ingredients. Ommegang is open every day of the year except for Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
