In 2013, Éric Montagné carried out work so that his brewery would reflect the image of the great ASB.
La Coupole is known as the restaurant of Biterrois rugby. Éric Montagné, owner of the establishment, created the place for friends from Biterrois for rugby and ASBH fans.
He explains : “I want a restaurant with our values of respect where everyone can come and eat a menu with fresh and homemade products at a more than affordable price.” Today, he is making his dream come true, with 200-dish days with “the same audience as in the stadiums”he smiles.
