Beertopia With An Awesome View

March 14, 2021 – 10:17 am Comments Off

Beertopia is Hong Kong craft beer festival. More then 400 beers to choose from. It started from yesterday (13 March 2021) till Saturday (15 March 2021). I was there early to enjoy the trade session, is fun as we able to meet up with some familiar faces and brewmasters from different parts of the continents! Of course the beer excite me the most!

The venue is perfect to held beerfest. As the view is Hong Kong City centre as the landscape. Waterfront Promenade West Kowloon is the event located. A far bit of walking from the nearest Kowloon MTR took about 10-15 mins walk.

Enough about the venue, let’s stick back to the beer! The selection is wide and Hong Kong craft beer scene is growing at a very fast pace. Even faster then Malaysia that started earlier then them. Local bottle shop and microbreweries came and exhibit their beers. You will be surprise by the selection!

Some of their local brewed beer are very nice. Also have some China microbreweries came and showcase their product too. I reach the venue about 1pm. By 3pm I already try more then 20 beers. The American range is amazing. You guys know I’m a sucker for American craft beers. The best part are plenty of them came with draught!

If you are into craft beer and stay in Malaysia. This kinda event is like a big toy fair except it’s beer. Even at small taster glass, getting drunk at even like this is not hard.

This venue is big and the stall are quite far apart. Which had their pros and cons. A lot walking needed to be done! So you can actually drink and burn far at the same time… Haha. Good excuse to drink more!

The night view is awesome too. If you scared of cold, get a jacket as it will get a bit chilly when the sea breeze gaze by.

By night, there are live band and DJ spinning to hype up the mood! After whole day of drinking, the beat does make you want to dance! More shouting, yamsing and body movement to warm you up during the chilly night! Well, this is day 1 and today and tomorrow will be more awesome as they are expecting a bigger crowd. This place can easily fit 20k people! See you there! Cheers!
