Welcome to the village of OMER.
Since 1892, the Omer Vander Ghinste Brewery is situated in the picturesque town of Bellegem, near Kortrijk. The 28 meter high brewery tower, built in 1929, is a beacon in the surrounding landscape.
The tower was initially built to brew pils beer, but is used today to brew beers of spontaneous fermentation. Besides OMER. Traditional Blond, a beer of high fermentation with refermentation in the bottle, we also brew beers of low fermentation and spontaneous fermentation. This is unique and makes a visit to the brewery worthwhile!
