Daan Samson was the second participant in Couplet 2.0, a project of the Concordia art center in which a visual artist is always linked for three months to a resident from the city of Enschede. Samson chose Andrei Haret (managing director of Royal Grolsch) to be his project partner. From September to December 2019, the two went running, enjoyed art and got to know each other better during a cooking workshop. Their alliance came to an end with the presentation of a joint work of art.

In harmony Samson and Haret created a sparkling beer, in which elements of what they find important in life are summarized. The art edition was named 'Grolsch Couplet 2.0 - Andrei Haret & Daan Samson' and was released in an exclusive edition of fifty numbered and signed copies. The arts beer is intended as a tribute to the themes of prosperity and friendship.
