Ommegang began brewing Belgian-style ales in 1997. It was founded by Don Feinberg and Wendy Littlefield, owners of Vanberg & DeWulf beer import company and three Belgian breweries including Duvel Moortgat. Ommegang started up in a purpose-built building based on a traditional Belgian farmhouse, set on a former 136acre hop farm in the Susqehanna River Valley, 4mi south of Cooperstown, New York, on County Route 33 in the town of Milford.
Since its opening, Ommegang has grown rapidly; in early 2005, its owner said they have been unable to meet demand for their ales and as a result would add 40 percent to their production capacity over the next year.
By 2003, the Belgian breweries had all been absorbed into large corporations. Feinberg and Littlefield sold their share of Ommegang in 2003 to Belgian brewer Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat, brewers of the world-renowned Duvel Golden Ale. Duvel Moortgat brewed limited amounts of beer for Brewery Ommegang in 2006 to help meet demand, but has not brewed any since then.
Brewery Ommegang currently distributes its beers in 46 states and the District of Columbia, including Alaska and Hawaii but excluding Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, and Mississippi. Ommegang has also begun exporting to Canada, the US Virgin Islands, and Mexico.

One of the nicest, if not, the nicest brewery that we ever visited. The building is quite amazing and the grounds are just beautiful with a very large space. Dining is both indoors and outdoors...

Beautiful brewery; you know you’re somewhere special. The ambience inside was nice and the beer itself was amazing. The caramel apple cider was good enough to get a 4 pack to take home. Got some appetizers which were good. Poutine was unique and brussels sprouts were tasty. The sandwich and burger had good flavor, but the corn salad I got was a little lacking. Just dry leaves with some mush in the middle. My biggest knock was the time it took to get everything. We were told they always fill up within 15 minutes of opening so you would think they would be prepared to accommodate. Took about 30 minutes to be seated and didn’t see our first app for over an hour. Still need to stop if you’re in the area for sure.
We saw BLEACHERS here and it was a lot of fun. Plenty of parking. Plenty of space and easy to see stage. The food truck options were really good and we tried a few of the beers and were very happy with Neon Rainbow and the Cider especially!
