As the YUMM Festival Kirchberg will take place right in the heart of the Place de l’Europe, all the venues surrounding the square have been invited to participate in this festival. Thus, the restaurant of the Hotel Meliá offers a fine selection of cocktails at its stand, while the bar-restaurant of the Philharmonic, the Tempo, will serve the visitors a range of gins at its gin bar. Last but not least, there will be exquisite wines served at the wine bar run by la Table du Belvédère.
And since it was impossible to create an event without beer – a local passion –, the Italians of the Birrabus will help visitors discover the best what Italy has to offer in terms of craft beer.
Italy has not just pasta, pizza and Chianti to offer! It also has craft beer! That is why Loris created this amazing and educational concept of a beer truck to share the little known delights of his country. By playing with the concept of a school, he transformed a school bus from the eighties into a beer bar. Equipped with seventeen beer drafters, he travels through Europe to have people try the best Italian craft beers. And as the Italian cuisine should not be neglected, the Birrabus will, in the best Italian tradition, serve a wide range of antipasti to go with each sampling of craft beer: cheeses, cold cuts and other regional delights.
Why participate in the YUMM Festival Kirchberg? Even if he will not be competing, that does not mean that Loris will not set the bar high. He is indeed very proud and honoured that he can be part of this new kind of event.
His strongest asset? A careful selection of specific brews and snacks to match the meals prepared by the contestants.
His truck? More vintage than a former school bus? Impossible! The Birrabus definitively attracts attention with its gold yellow colour, a homage to its favourite brew.
