Additional Information

The history of PALM Breweries goes back to 1686. At that time Theodoor Cornet, estate manager of Diepensteyn Castle, was the proprietor of an inn opposite the church in Steenhuffel. He brewed beer and distilled jenever (Gin) there for his guests, also brewing a heavier "Counts beer" for the Lords of Diepensteyn, Counts of Maldeghem-Steenhuffel. In 1747, Anne Cornet converted it into a small top-fermentation village brewery, selling beer to the inhabitants of the village. She dubbed her brewery Den Hoorn, most probably after the Dutch translation of her French surname Cornet. In 1974, the brewery changed its name to PALM Breweries.
It now owns several different Belgian breweries.
The Boon Brewery since 1990
The Rodenbach Brewery since 1998
De Gouden Boom Brewery since 2001
In 2014 De Hoorn Brewery a Microbrewery on the Palm site was set up in honour of the Cornet family.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.

Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
