In 1997, America's most unique microbrewery Ommegang was born in Cooperstown, NY. It has always carried the philosophy that truly unique ales must be built from the ground up. Now brewing five award-winning Belgian-style ales, Ommegang is the place where brewing is an art.

It was clear by the end of the 20th century that America's tastes were evolving; there was a want for something different from the average mass-produced beers. In 2003, Duvel Moortgat purchased this brewery and Ommegang is continued to be produced in New York.
