It joins such destination breweries as San Diego’s Stone Brewing, St. Louis’ Schlafly Bottleworks and Denver’s Wynkoop on the list.
Ommegang opened in 1997 as a Belgian-style farmhouse brewery, specializing in bottle-conditioned Belgian-inluenced ales. It recently completed an expansion that boosted its production capacity and added a cafe specializing in Belgian food.
Here’s the thedailymeal.com had to say about the Ommegang experience:
New York’s homage to Belgian brewing offers complimentary tours of its 136-acre facility, plus tastings of up to six of the award-winning, house-made ales. Located on a former hops farm in the Susquehanna River Valley, the brewery happens to be a mere four miles from Cooperstown’s Baseball Hall of Fame. In spring 2013, Ommegang brewmaster Phil Leinhart is launching a series of Game of Thrones-inspired brews. First up? Iron Throne, a blonde ale as smooth and sultry as an Emilia Clarke clone.
