BBP began commercial operation as a gypsy brewer, making their first beers at Brouwerij Anders. They decided to brew four variants of a Belgian IPA, and put it to a democratic vote for the Brussels locals to choose their favourite.
Delta beat the Alpha, Beta and Gamma versions, and became their first core range beer.
Challenger, Smaragd (new one for me!) and Citra hops provide notes of lychee and passionfruit, backed by a medium malt body and finished with a Belgian saison yeast for a little funk and a very dry, moderately bitter finish.
In 2015 they opened a small brewery and bar in Brussels, just off the main square. But this was just for experimentation and small batches – they continued to brew their production beers at Anders. Plans are underway that by 2020 BBP will open a new 35,000 litre brew house on the Brussels canal and bring all their beers back to be brewed in their new home.
