Brewery Ommegang Named As Champion
The City of Brotherly Love certainly showed plenty of love to a local business over the weekend. Brewery Ommegang of Cooperstown was named the champion mid-size brewery and brewmaster at the 2016 World Beer Cup in Philadelphia. Breweries that produce between 15,001 and six million barrels a year are considered mid-size and in 2016, nearly 350 breweries participated in the World Beer Cup competition at that level. In addition, Ommegang's beer Rosetta won gold and both Three Philosophers and Gnomegang captured bronze in their respective categories.
