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 great 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 the 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 enjoy what Brussels does best – beer!
PS: The BBP organises a Craft Beer Festival every year called WANDERLUST* (September/October). It’s a great opportunity to discover local breweries from different countries. An added reason to schedule your Brussels trip for next fall…
