Brussels finally has a Beergarden, opening this weekend with ‘grande pompe’

Written by Leon Gabriel

A few months before the opening of the long-awaited “Beer Tempel” which will take place in the stock market, this weekend we are inaugurating the “biergarten” (in German, or “beergarden” in English) of the Brussels Beer Project this weekendend of May 21 and 22 along the canal in Anderlecht.

Adorned with multiple colours, this vast space of 1,000m2 is inspired by the brewing gardens found in Berlin, London Rotterdam or even Copenhagen and Paris.

It was at the edge of the Biestebroeck basin that the brewing equipment arrived by barge in September 2021. Under the roof in the colours of its flagship labels, the Brussels Beer Project hopes to produce up to 20,000 litres per day.

But the project leaders also want to attract amateurs and tourists as close as possible to the fermentation vats to offer an experience that is still unique in Brussels, since the place has more than 200 seats and a beautiful terrace.

If you are planning a trip to Anderlecht, the brewery is easily accessible by bike from the centre, since it is bordered by the cycle path along the canal.

“Inauguration of the Beergarden BBP Port Sud”, on May 21 and 22 at Quai de Biestebroeck 23, 1070 Anderlecht. Admission will be charged: €7/day, €12/2 days.
