Brewery Ommegang (Cooperstown, NY) loves Belgian brewing styles. Every offering by the brewery has a Belgian influence – Belgian scotch ales, Belgian winter warmers etc. One of Ommegang’s most recent offerings was Zuur, a Flanders ale brewed in collaboration with Liefmans. Building off of Zuur’s popularity & the love of all things Belgian comes Ommegang’s newest collaboration “Gnomegang”.
Gnomegang pairs Brasserie D’Achouffe (Achouffe, Belgium) and Brewery Ommegang. As mentioned yesterday, Ommegang will close at the end of January to undergo a few internal improvements. Ommegang and Brasserie D’Achouffe will brew this beer on site Cooperstown, New York.
This delectable blonde ale is a co-creation of two famed farmstead breweries: Brewery Ommegang and Brasserie d’Achouffe. It employs five fine malts, two noble hops, and both of the distinctive Chouffe and Ommegang yeasts. You’ll enjoy the smooth drinkability, fruity aromas and flavors, and warming finish
