November 27, 2020 – 12:25 pm Comments Off

Spotted this beer at TMC Warehouse at Bangsar, tips courtesy of a friend. So when there I bought 2 to try. Always excite me to see new beer in town. I called the supplier up to see I can get them for Ales & Lagers but I received bad news from them as they no more importing the beer.. If you want to try them better get them fast.

1942 Dark Lager A Murrays Craft Brewing & Hunter Beer Co Collab Brew!

November 25, 2020 – 8:04 am 3 Comments

A special brew created for Newcastle Craft Beer week by two of Australia’s finest brewery’s Murray’s and Hunter Beer Co.  It no secret the favorite beer style here in the Hunter for generations is good ‘ol dark ale, described as mothers milk to some especially on tap! I’d like to think brewers Shaun Sherlock (Murray’s) and Keith Grice (Hunter Beer Co.) considered this fact when crafting this tasty brew for this beery week.

I got my growler/s filled at Murray’s Brewery here in Beaut Port Stephens Australia yesterday afternoon and didn’t even consider having a taste test as I am as many of you know now…… I am a massive fan of dark lagers and  have a lot of faith in these brewers to create something spectacular! And I tell ya they haven’t let me down at all!

Pours a sensational dark brown body with awesome creamy white head!  Served this abit colder than my regular ales due to the style.

On the nose a delightful hoppy aroma along with some malty notes- definitely the best of both breweries on showcase here! NZ hops come to mind and some chocky malts.Yum!

Going down very creamy head and quite a full body for a lager very satisfying almost like a porter style but with the drinkability of a lager  -Malty goodness followed by a somewhat subtle bitter dryish finish with a slight hoppy hit. Very refreshing— I likey!

I must say very well done to the Brewers on this special one off brew it really is that good! Keith’s passion for German style lagers and Shaun’s expertise in using New Zealand hops really is well displayed in this brew for the good people of Newcastle and visitors alike! Grab one while you can!



‘Where’s The Party?’ Delivers An Epic Adventure!

November 21, 2020 – 2:17 pm Comments Off

Carlsberg’s unique ‘Where’s The Party?’ event recently brought its entourage to the Pearl of the Orient – Penang for the one-of-its-kind party this year. Action packed with a marathon of games, assembly of international music maestro’s and ice cold Carlsberg beer, and the event was a rally of energetic vibes from beginning to end.

The distinct party series offers young party-goers the ultimate party experience. The mystery event hones in on consumers’ natural fascination with the unknown and challenges the curiosity of those who are bold enough to step out of their comfort zone for greater excitement and rewards.

According to Soren Ravn, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia, the ‘Where’s The Party?’ series is a counterweight to the commercialization of how most music events happen these days. “This event is gaining immense popularity in Malaysia and is being stamped as an iconic party experience. The platform allows our consumers to get down with an edgy vibe that is completely unique. Coupled with the unknown adventure factor; ‘Where’s The Party?’ offers a complete experiential journey that you would definitely not get anywhere else.”

“Every detail of the party is meticulously brewed together. Consumers were transported on an epic crusade as soon as they made it onto the guests list, ensuring the experience remains extraordinary,” Ravn added

Entering its third wave this year, the first ever 3-Nation party saw 1,200 guests from Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore finding themselves on the shores of Hard Rock Hotel’s beachfront.

Partygoers congregated in droves at Queensbay Mall before boarding their respective buses to the hotel where they were greeted by a welcome crew of hostesses and percussionists. After check-ins, the event kicked-off with enthused guests darting towards the event site.

To keep spirits on a high-note, beach volley ball, a tug-of-war zone and a limbo-rock area occupied invitees as Twilight Action Girl spun a slew of hypnotic electro dance beats. DJ Nikki soon took over the decks rippling out chill-out house anthems, building the momentum for the main party zone.

Decked with a massive LED paneled stage, the central zone was outlined with a flow of streaking, spinning colours and a dance ‘cage’ in the middle of it all. Opening with Soren Ravn, jet-skiing into the party zone; the grand entrance made for a great kick-off introduction, followed by a beat boxing battle between Shawn Lee and the charming MD himself aka Star Rapper. Guests were throwing out constant cheers before celebrity hosts Joey G and Patricia K took the stage.

While a visual playground of lights danced across the sea of people, and pyros made for stimulating retina-seduction, Mad August a.k.a Crossfire had music lovers jumping around with enthusiasm. Rubberband then brought the house down with a 45 minute-set of no-frills Cantopop tunes, while the famous Love Cubic dancers from Korea chugged out hot moves to commercial favourites.

Genre-defying Dubstep and electro house pushed the tempo as DJ Inquisitive took on the wheels of steel causing dance mayhem in the ‘cage’. The tribal, percussive beats that cannot quite be classified left hands in the air and feet on constant overdrive.

Focusing more than ever on dance music with hits that flowed like a DJ set, left-field R&B and hip-hop diva Kelis was next on the line-up, and made her mark with pop-dance hybrids that left partyers craving for more. Throwing shape-shifting instrumental segues into the mix; the set brought the party into full swing.

Bringing it back to the eclectic sounds of Dubstep and electro house, producer and DJ Norman Doray surfed in and jacked-up the audience with a melodic treat of progressive sounds. DJ Mayumi then closed the night with superb hip-hop tones that left everyone shaking like a Polaroid picture.

The night ended on an astronomical level as revelers made their way back to their respective rooms in high-spirits and audible chatter. Making yet another experience an epic one, Carlsberg’s ‘Where’s The Party?’ showcased one of the most entertaining parties to hit punters, and the anticipation is already bursting at the seams for the next chapter.

The knowledge and awareness amongst consumers on the significance of responsible drinking is Carlsberg Malaysia’s top priority. The brewer deployed employee-ambassadors to encourage consumers to party and consume beer in moderation as part of its efforts in advocating responsible drinking.

Full Moon Dark Ale

November 19, 2020 – 9:04 am Comments Off

Continue my tasting in Full Moon Microbrewery in Jungceylon, Patong. This ale appear to be dark amber, with full nice white head.

Smell malty sweetness, roasted malt. A deep sip, this ale has some nutty, fruity, and chocolate roasted taste, caramel sweetness, medium carbonation, mouthfeel is dry toward the end, and little hop bitterness.

This ale appeared to be brewed by four exoti blends of Australian Caramel malt, Chocolate malt, pale crystal malt and Thai black sticky from Sao-Hai rice field in Thailand.

The after taste finish some roast nut, the taste kind of also reminds me of the Old Speckled Hen.. no offence.. just the taste struck me with this english ale.

a life less ordinary had a Sunday roast (and beer!)

Dude, if someone told me that we’re throwing a party on the afternoon of 11.11.2012, I’ll be amazingly excited.
If someone told me it there’s beer in the party, I will run around in circles in excitement.
If someone told me not only it’s not just beer, but craft beer, I’m gonna throw up from excitement.
If someone had the sanity to marry the craft beer with a fresh roasted lamb for the party, dude, I’ll probably will not show up because it’s not possible to be that cool.

(A)Les and Largers did just that. Those basterds.

Since I wanted to know how to throw a proper underground beer party, I arrived there at 12.00pm to help (drink – All I did was be a pretentious prick and tell people what to drink.). Then everything went fuzzy because I am lousy drinker like that.

(So, here’s what I remember vaguely!)

There were older blokes,

There were some friends,

There were total strangers that came with some chicks,

some chicks came with more chicks,
and there was probably a Husky, but of course things were fuzzy so it could be a hairy friend with an tendency to bark at you, but he’s not a licker.

As promised, there were some cool craft beers, and holy shit, the lamb came free with every RM30 spent. WHOA.

Then there was this topless Indian gentlemen from Sri Lanka.

Finally there was free flow keg of Weihenstephaner weissbeer that everyone drank from the tap.

Because we roll like that.
