From beer to biscuit & biscuit to beer
We don't know about you, but it took us a few spicy beers to deal with this swift end of summer. Two or three later, we had forgotten all about the bad weather and came up with a pretty daring idea. What about starting a project with our favourite brewery, Brussels Beer Project?
If you've never heard of it, Brussels Beer Project is a brewery born with the grand ambition of giving Belgian abbey beers a new lease of life. In their Brussels playground, they've been inventing some turbulent and highly spirited beers for the past six years.
Inspired, we set our heart on celebrating a circular economy. Together, we dreamed of collaborating to a greener system and decided to give a second life to our own soon-to-be-thrown-away products.
To do so, we intended to create something tasty with our leftovers. Our unsellable speculoos, shattered somewhere along our production line, took the direction of Brussels Beer Project brewery. Meanwhile, we welcomed in our atelier the residues of cereals used during the cooking of the beer: the draffs.
So, can you guess what we've been up to? Brussels Beer Project made a beer with our broken speculoos while we created a brand new biscuit with their draffs. Tough Cookie came to life.
The next step was to give the traditional Brussels Beer Project bottle a makeover with the valuable help of the trendy Dandoy dots and to restyle our packet of biscuits accordingly.
Let's go over it once more for those who didn't follow: our speculoos give beers which themselves give biscuits. All this to celebrate local products and overcome useless waste.
There is a Belgian saying that goes: "Where the brewer comes, the baker doesn't". It means that one doesn't need to eat when he/she's had a beer. Well... You might not need to, but you'll definitely want to.
