The Belgian beer tradition has its roots in over 700 years of history, became a UNESCO intangible heritage for humanity in 2016 and is proudly immortalized by more than 125 craft breweries across the territory.
The Brussels beer project, born in 2013 from a crowdfunding project with the aim of revisiting tradition in a modern key, is based on a collective of young people who experiment with different types of beer each year and then trust a community of over 2,000 followers and tasters to decide which ones to market and which ones to discard. Today, it distributes its beers in around 150 bars and restaurants in Brussels and in over 20 European countries: The evening will be an opportunity to taste 6 of the most representative beers and to discover BBP Port Sud, the new headquarters of the brewery built directly on the banks of the Brussels-Charleroi canal in the Anderlecht area, at the Cureghem bridge.
BBP Port Sud, which can be reached from the city center via a pleasant cycle path, is a candidate to become one of the new reference points in the city for beer enthusiasts and more generally to spend leisure time, thanks to a large sunny terrace of 1,000 sqm, equipped with over 200 seats. The structure was born from a redevelopment project of an abandoned area of the city and places particular emphasis on environmental sustainability: the electricity comes from solar panels (250 m2) and other renewable sources, such as heating, while the roof allows rainwater to be collected in a 40,000 liter tank.
A visionary project that has many points in common with Precollinear Park, the place in Turin that will host the event: Brussels Beer Project evening dedicated to beer is actually part of the Torino Stratosferica program, an independent non-profit association , which intends to promote the idea of an innovative city represented through the local creative industry, and Precollinear Park is an example of national expertise in the remodeling of degraded and disused spaces.
The Precollinear Park recycling project was launched in the summer of 2020 to remove the space left by the tracks and terminus of the former tram line 3, located between the Regina Margherita Bridge and Piazza Hermada. Thanks to the work of a community of volunteers, the park is kept tidy and clean to host a range of events, exhibitions and reviews each summer, and in 2021 it was the finalist of the new European Bauhaus Awards, supporting virtuous urban transformation initiatives in Europe. ..
Ursula Jone Gandini, Director of the Italian Tourist Office in Brussels, states: “We are pleased to be part of this initiative, which, also for the place that hosts it, is particularly in line with the unconventional, creative and sparkling spirit. in Brussels. It will be an excellent opportunity to present the city from a tourist point of view: a surprising destination, ideal for a weekend with family or friends “.
