Second picture

I'm almost every week in Bruges, sometimes twice.
The carriage with two great horses caught my attention.
I'm not a beer drinker, so I do not make advertising for my beer brand.
In fifteen minutes could not be more picture taken there because all the tourists wanted to take a picture with their children beside to the horses.

I don't know but I think a publicity stunt of the brewery, but two lovely good maintain horses, and a specially coachman.

History of the brewery OMER

The roots of our brewery date back to May 1892. It was a time when every brewer brewed its own special beer. It was no different in Bellegem, a rural village in West Flanders within a stone’s throw of the French border. In that same year, the first barrels of "Ouden Tripel", what is today called "VanderGhinste Oud Bruin", rolled across the cobblestones in Bellegem and were renowned as far as French Flanders.
The fact that the brewery has been continuously in family hands from its early start to the present has become a rarity.
Influenced by the new "Pilsener Type" from Czechoslovakia, the brewery develops its own type of pils under the name "Ghinst Pils". That’s why, in 1929 the construction of a low fermentation tower was necessary.
The year after its construction the tower was already operating and now still dominates the rolling countryside of Bellegem. From the highway that connects Kortrijk to Tournai, one can clearly see the tower rising next to the church of Bellegem.
