7. Ommegang Brewery
Location: Cooperstown, New York
Year Established: 1997
This Belgian-style brewery started out as an independent American brewery but they made their Belgian-inspired beers so well, it caught the attention of Flemish brewery Duvel Moortgat. Soon the European brewer was in control and driving Ommegang as they continued crafting high-quality brews. The recent Ommegang Iron Throne, a beer brewed for HBO series Game of Thrones, introduced the brewery to an entirely new audience.
