A trip to Cooperstown, NY, with its classic Main Street and iconic Hall of Fame, is like a trip back in time. And the trip to get there is timeless – rolling hills and sparkling waters far from the interstate.
Whether it’s across the country or in your own backyard, this quiet corner of New York state will transport you.
Nestled in the bucolic beauty, you’ll find Brewery Ommegang. The hop bines that line the winding driveway signal you’ve arrived at a destination for craft beer fans, who are greeted by the farm-style building’s signature arch when they arrive.
It’s here that some of the finest Belgian-style ales in the country are crafted – here, among these humble surroundings that include a small hop yard and a large field that doubles as an outdoor amphitheater in the summer.
Ommegang was established 20 years ago on a former hop farm – the first farm brewery founded in the U.S. in more than a century at that time. Nearby aquifers supply the brewery with one of Central New York’s best water sources. Carefully selected hops and grain create world-class beers.
Brewmaster Phil Leinhart has been the steward of these resources for the past 12 years.
