  • The Belgian Beer Project’s US Launch

    April 7th 2018

    The Brussels Beer Project is coming to Chicago and launching their US presence at Hopleaf! It’s a new urban brewery injecting new energy into the Belgian beer world and collaborating with other breweries all over the world! Sebastian Morvan (Owner) and Max Pecsteen (Export Director) will join us in the evening. We’ll have 6 of their beers on tap. Be among the first to experience BBP!

    What is the Brussels Beer Project? “It’s a collaborative project using co-creation to become more innovative & daring and to bring fresh air into a sometimes conservative Belgian craft brewing scene. With their new urban brewery, situated in the heart of a Brussels neighborhood, they move on to the next level in co-creation by inviting brewers from all around the world to come experiment with them and push the boundaries of beer. They brew about 30 new recipes and about 750,000 bottles every year.”

    During the day they’ll be at Half Acre collaborating on a beer, and then afterwards coming to Hopleaf!

    Delta Pale Ale– Saison/IPA hybrid 6.5%
    Grosse Bertha– Belgian Hefeweizen 7%
