Grosse Bertha is halfway between a Hefeweisse and a triple because its 7% alcohol content is much higher than the usual 4-5%.

On the nose, you can notice aromas of citrus, spices, yeast, coriander and wheat. The German yeast also gives it the aromas of banana and clove.

Grosse Bertha was the winner of the 2014 prototype challenge. Brussels Beer Project proposed four wheat beers and 31% of Brussels beer lovers voted this beer to be the best. 

Grosse Bertha became a successful beer due to its low hoppiness but high alcohol level. Thus, it is loved by both amateurs and beer experts.

Brewery Brussels Beer Project

Brussels Beer Project is a successful Brussels brewery that was born from the meeting of Olivier and Sébastien during their ERASMUS in Canada.

Wanting to boost the Brussels market, which at the time was limited to three or four breweries, they wanted a brewery where crowdfunders would have a say in beer production. Several tests and tastings are organized each year to give the floor to crowdfunders.

Innovation and co-creation are at the heart of Beer Project's DNA which took shape from the beginning with the "Beer for Life". More than 800 crowdfunders joined the adventure in the first year and agreed Olivier and Sébastien to give up their respective jobs after collecting 30,000 via crowdfunding.

Initially the beers were all brewed at Anders! To guarantee a large production capacity. This is still the case for a few beers, in particular their classic beers (Delta, Grosse Berta, etc.), but all the so-called ephemeral beers are produced on Avenue Dansaert, a stone's throw from the canal.

It is this philosophy that led them to open their brasserie in the heart of downtown Brussels. Located in a neighborhood that is gradually becoming more gentrified, they have been able to place themselves at the crossroads of the different populations that populate the capital.

The number of brews produced per year in this small production unit is phenomenal. They brew between three and four times a week compared to once or twice for other breweries of this type.

This also involves a lot of collaborative brews with other breweries but also with various and varied partners such as restaurants, artists and producers of all kinds.

In the near future, the brewery will expand to Anderlecht with a view to recovering the production of the classic beers made at Anders!

There is no doubt that this company promises surprises for the future.

Brussels Beer Project Jobs

Brussels Beer Project announces a record wave of recruitment for the second quarter of 2021 to strengthen its teams as part of the opening of its new "BBP Bailli" taproom and the launch of its new brewery "Brussels Beer Project Anderlecht". BBP's workforce will almost double, going from 35 to 55 people. It is therefore mainly profiles of brewers and bartenders who are sought for this wave of recruitment.

Brussels Beer Project Bailli

Brussels Beer Project will open its second bar in Brussels at the corner of Avenue Louise and Rue du Bailli. BBP thus takes possession of the former Irish pub "Michael Collins", an institution in the Bailli district.

The BPP team had wanted to open a second taproom in Brussels for several years after the 3 successful openings in Paris (2) and Tokyo. Indeed, many people do not go to the BBP taproom located in the city center at 188 rue Antoine Dansaert.

BBP Bailli customers will be welcomed by around thirty pumps offering BBP beers as well as a selection of craft beers produced by friendly breweries. The atmosphere of the place will not be totally distorted because the television transmission of sporting events will be maintained. To eat, the recruitment of two experienced pizza makers is on the program.

Olivier and Sébastien, the 2 co-founders have also opened up the capital of the BBP Bailli to 49 employees who can also benefit from the great financial success of the Brussels Beer Project.

BBP soap from Savonneries Bruxelloises

It is an original Brussels collaboration that took place at the end of 2020 with the launch of a beer soap. The Savonneries Bruxelloise thus produced the BBP soap which contains spent grains from the Beer Project brews. Dregs have their usefulness as an exfoliant alongside hops which bring an aromatic dimension to the soap. At the same time, BBP released a beer called "Shower Power" which fortunately is not a soap beer. Produced at only 1000 units, BBP soaps are available via the brewery's e-shop.

Brussels Beer Project Anderlecht

The launch of the new Brussels Beer Project brewery in Anderlecht is scheduled for the end of 2021. Located along the canal in the Biestbroeck basin, the new brewery will have a production capacity of 35,000 hectoliters per year, or 10 million bottles per year.

The collaboration with the Limburg brewery "Anders!" which produces the permanent BBP beers thus comes to an end. This was necessary because the 2000 hectoliter facilities at Dansaert were far too small to meet the growing demand for Beer Project beers. The temporary beers produced in Dansaert will also be produced in Anderlecht and will give way to more experimental brews such as those intended for aging in barrels.

The new BBP brewery in Anderlecht will also make room for a 900 square meter beer garden to welcome local residents and the many cyclists who ride along the canal every weekend.

Electrical collaboration between BBP and Bolt

BBP and Bold are teaming up to bring you BBP beers to new Bolt customers. Brussels Beer Project is already a customer of Bolt, which offers to source electricity directly from a clearly identified producer. Once the new BBP brewery in Anderlecht is in operation, BBP will become a net producer of electricity with its 250 square meters of solar panels. You can then join Bolt and ask to become customers of the electricity produced on the roofs of the Brussels Beer Project. In the meantime BBP is offering a pack of beers to new Bolt customers.

BBP Smells like Brussels Spirit

Several Brussels breweries have joined together to produce Brussels Smells like spirit from unsold barrels due to the sanitary closure of bars following COVID. These are the Brussels Beer Project, En Stoemelings and La Source breweries.

Creating brandy from brews of undrinkable beer is common among craft breweries but the COVID crisis has extended the transformation opportunity to all expired beer kegs.

All Together

Brussels Beer Project participates in the All Together solidarity project in which more than 550 breweries from 40 different countries participate. The principle is that each brewery brews the same recipe and donates the profits to a charity as part of the fight against COVID. Beer Project has therefore chosen the non-profit association "Horeca Come-back" launched to support HORECA establishments hard hit by health restrictions linked to COVID.

GDP Shop Dansaert

Since the opening of BBP Dansert, it has been possible to come and buy BBP beers on site during the opening of the bar, but since 2021, a shop has been opened in the adjacent premises where "La Fabrica" was located. It is open Thursday to Saturday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

BBP Canal Saint-Martin

Just one year after the opening of the first BBP bar in Paris in Pigalle, Brussels Beer Project is opening a second beer bar close to the Saint-Martin canal. The concept is the same with a maximum of beer available on tap and a catering offer that makes it an ideal place to have lunch on the weekend.

BBP Pigalle

Brussels Beer Project opened its first Parisian bar in March 2018 at 1 rue de Bruxelles (yes, you can't make it up) in the tourist district of Pigalle, a stone's throw from the famous Moulin Rouge. BBP craft beers are of course available on tap in pints or half pints. For the inauguration, a bus was even prepared from the Brussels capital to fill the Parisian bar with Brussels aficionados of the brewery.

STEKAT’ Brussels Beer Project

Brussels Beer Project creates the surprise by launching in October 2017 the STEKAT in collaboration with Father Jérémie of the Sainte-Catherine church, located not far away.

Olivier and Sébastien, the two co-founders, hesitated at first when Father Jérémie approached them the first time. Especially since BBP's slogan is "Leave the abbey, join the playground".

Finally, STEKAT was an opportunity for BBP to offer a revisited abbey beer with a nice presence of aromatic hops. The launch of STEKAT, which took place during a sound and light event on the church square, was an opportunity to take legendary photos with Father Jérémie.

Finally, the STEKAT was brewed several years in a row in order to allocate the profits to the renovation of the church and the financing of a trip to Puy-du-Fou in France.

BBP Tokyo

Brussels Beer Project opened its first beer bar in May 2017 in Tokyo, Japan. The project is an initiative of the Japanese importer of BBP who also owns several bars. After Soleil Levant beer, created especially for Japan, BBP is strengthening its ties with Japan (the brewery's second export market) by opening its first beer bar there. It includes exclusive beers brewed at Dansaert as well as "Beer for Life" packs which can be picked up on site by crowdfunders.
