Kevin Patricio

Basque Beer CEO

We are the Basqueland Brewing Project, a micro-brewing operation bringing better beer to the good people of Donostia-San Sebastian and soon the world. More commonly referred to as BBP, as in “BBP bitches!”–we brew beers in the West Coast-style (USA) with the discerning palates and culture of the Basque people in mind. Our beers are always balanced, bright, with great depth of flavor, a long finish, and almost too much pride.
