Brussels=beer, so it’s an obvious choice to write about brewers and a taproom. To be honest, it took me a while to find out about the existence of an actual Brussels Beer Project taproom. I kept seeing their awesome beers in bars and grocery stores, ordering my fair share of Grosse Bertha, one of their best-sellers. I eventually realised that they had an actual venue located in St-Catherine (of course, as that’s where anything trendy in Brussels is).
What’s cool about the Brussels Beer Project is that their beers resemble the abbey dense traditional Belgium beers, but with a modern twist and are somewhat lighter – still no less delicious though. Their beers are brewed right there on the premises and makes for an excellent postcard photo from BXL.
The taproom is a hip venue where you can enjoy small or big glasses of what’s being produced at the moment – their usual classics and some seasonal beers (I am obsessed with their stouts, especially one called the Night Drift). If you don’t drink beers, you can still enjoy a visit, as they also have non-commercial non-alcoholic beverages. So go what Brussels does best – beer!
PS: The BBP organised a Craft Beer Festival every year (September/October). A great opportunity to discover local breweries from different countries. It’s an awesome event and an added reason to schedule your Brussels trip for next fall…
