Beerfest returns with a bang

Beer lovers, you won’t want to miss this for the world.

Returning bigger and better than its run last year, Beerfest Asia is back for the second time with promises of thrills and spills with even more beers on tap, rousing entertainment and – to top it off – live screenings of the World Cup. Held again at the Marina Promenade, expect lots of rowdy revelers enjoying their ice-cold tipple in the balmy, al-fresco setting by the bay.

Be spoilt for choice with over 250 different beers from all over the world to select from, under the canopies of three marquees. There are both commercial and craft beers from an international selection, and this is one occasion that guarantees to never leave you high and dry

Adding to the festive atmosphere will be live stage performances by rock outfits Queen tribute band “Killer Queen”, The U2 Show - Achtung Baby, and AC/DC tribute band Hell’s Belles, plus giant screen broadcasts of the World Cup and an outdoor bazaar with a wide range of food and games for all to enjoy. Other performers include 53A, Jayson Norris, Reverie, Goodfellas and Rockafellas.

Some of the exotic brews on tap include the award- winning EFES beers from Turkey, chocolate-flavoured Imperial Choklat Stout, the 1488 Whiskey Beer matured in Tullibardine whisky casks, Hole Hearted (voted the best bottled beer in Britain), and the Vollmond Full Moon Beer, which is brewed from organic raw materials only on full moon nights, resulting in a more intense and full-bodied flavour.

And if you’re not quite a beer expert, and can’t figure your ales from your lagers, then bulk up on beer knowledge (plus lots of tastings) with specially-arranged beer clinics on the grounds (registration is necessary). A beer auction will also be held on the last day of the festival, where visitors get a chance to bid for featured beers at insanely rock-bottom prices.
