Avant-Garde Artisans Brasseurs was born in 2016 from the joint imaginations of two young men determined and talented, tortured at times, but no less cute: Renaud Gouin and Shawn Duriez. Bringing together all the necessary qualities to give birth to a major brewing phenomenon, they first courted a little timidly then, noting the almost perfect match of their ambitions and the complementarity of their personal abilities, have united. Today they hold the galloping reindeer of a hypothetical empire of fermentation and claim with optimism that, I quote: “the fruit of our genius is absolutely ripe and its flesh supple and pulpy. Its assimilation by the human of tomorrow will be great, and its digestion will bathe a dazzling light and warm future civilizations. »(Reference) In addition to time and space, their only constraint is to create what they want. So they go from beer to beer according to the seasons, patiently materializing their vision of a better world. In 2018, Avant-Garde merged with Jukebox – also founded by Renaud Gouin – to build from scratch a superb production brewery next to a chic chic tasting room in the premises of the late Bingo Hochelaga, the hottest bingo in town.
