Stained glass windows

The name OMER. stems from an era before brand names were used. When Omer Vander Ghinste started the brewery in 1892, he gave his beers his own name, as this was common in those days. He promoted his beers by placing stained glass windows with the words “bieren Omer Vander Ghinste” in the front windows of the pubs.

5 generations

 As these windows were very expensive, it was no option to replace them at every change of generation. Therefore every firstborn son was baptised ‘Omer’. A tradition that is still honored today, 5 generations ahead.

The authentic stained glass windows? These can still be admired in the streets and also served as inspiration for the look of OMER. Traditional Blond!
