It is above all a local story. For the 2021 Music Festival, the Espace Avel Vor team organized things in the form of impromptu events at various places in the city. Among them is the Merlin Brasserie, rue Van Gogh, which hosted a group of poets from Asteria for the occasion. It was there that Emmanuel Richard, director of the performance hall, met John Merlin, a brewer.
The collaboration between the two institutions is now taking a new form since the idea of creating a special edition beer in the colors of Espace Avel Vor arose. Emmanuel Richard explains: “Making beer is not a revolutionary idea, but it is in keeping with the times.” The idea is to really get involved in a local approach. The brewery, a stone’s throw from Avel Vor, couldn’t be better.”
