Beery Christmas Jour 9 : BBP Grand Soif

The history of Brussels Beer Project

Ah Belgium, it's not for nothing that it was able to put its beer on the UNESCO world heritage list! It's strong, it's sought after and compared all over the world, but you know what's wrong with it? It is that not all Belgian breweries have the goal of making THE classic Belgian beer par excellence. As you can imagine, that's what's going to be in your glass in a little while, but before that, we'll explain the why and how.

First of all, who? Brussels Beer Project of course! Located in the center of the Belgian capital, the microbrewery was born in 2013 under the guidance of brewers Sebastien and Olivier, two enthusiasts who wanted to dust off the "Belgian beer" style by giving it a new lease of life and remove the label of traditional beer that sticks to the skin of all Belgian beers. The adventure began in 2013 with our two founders and their first craft beer, Delta IPA, which was brewed with the help of crowdfunding, which means that many people actively participated financially in the development of this little marvel. Recently, Delta IPA has also been put in cans in order to be appreciated by the largest number of people, but also because many craft breweries say it: the can is the future of craft beer.

The tasters are conquered and the brewery project will always grow. Its DNA is based on three essential values, namely impact, collaboration and experimentation, and the team is growing fast too, with today more than 50 collaborators working around beer, with the desire to build something unique that will make this beautiful city of Brussels proud, to become one of the best breweries in Europe. Nowadays, BBP brews more than 50 pop-up beers a year within its two breweries in Brussels and develops many circular economy and collaborative projects with actors across Europe, so it's no surprise to find it in your Beery Christmas 2022 with a new nugget, the Grand Soif! 

BBP - Grand Soif

The Belgian brewery BBP wants to relieve all the beer lovers who have a dry throat and a gullet in need of hops. For this purpose, they have brewed the Grand Soif, a light and thirst-quenching beer, hopped cold. When a beer is cold hopped, raw hopped or dry hopped, it means that hops are added after the primary fermentation, in order to have more aroma, since after boiling, many of the aromas from the hops disappear. Through La Grand Soif, BBP wishes to interpret the famous Grisette, a beer emblematic of the miners of Northern France and Wallonia. It is named after the dusty grey faces that used to emerge from the ground, looking for a cool and refreshing beer after a hard day's work.

Once poured into a glass, it has a clear yellow color with an airy white head and aromas of malt, spices, pepper, herbs and citrus. Light and thirst-quenching, it is a soft and delicately bitter beer, with malty and hoppy flavors and a predominance of citrus fruits, notably orange peel. It has a relatively watery texture with a low carbonation, for a light finish, which does not linger on the palate. It should be tasted at a temperature of 6°C, with old cheeses, ribs or entrecote with French fries.
