Beerfest Asia 2017

Beerfest Asia 2017

Back for its 9th consecutive run, Beerfest Asia promises to be an event you wouldn’t want to miss. They’re holding it at a new location this year though! This year, the magic will be happening at Marina Bay Cruise Centre. I’d say the only thing stopping me from going would be putting on extra inches to my ever growing waist line.

Standard 1 day tickets are going for $28 to $37 depending on which day you want to go.

What to expect

BEER! Lots of it. I mean duh, it’s a beer festival but you’ll probably never ever see so many different types of beer being sold in one place (other than at the Beerfest of course). 500 different brands to be precise. You’ll definitely spot a couple of beers you’re familiar with and beers that you’ve never even heard of! Some are extremely hard to pronounce so I think if I were to order, I’d just point and go “1 of that please!”.

Female DJs. I kid you not, there’s a whole line up of female guest DJs spinning you tunes the whole night! There are male ones as well but… just look at the line up and you’ll understand why I’m so stoked!

3 Tribute Bands!

Not the actual bands of course but they sound uncannily similar!

Bon Jovi Tribute – Slippery When Wet

They’ll be performing all the classic hits like “It’s My Life”! & “Livin’ on a Prayer”!

Def Leppard Tribute – Hysteria

“Pour Some Sugar On Me”“Love Bites” & Animal” sound familiar?

Guns N’ Roses Tribute – Gunners

Whoa Whoa Whoa Sweet Child of My-ine! Love that song!

I’m particularly eyeing the Mentaiko Quail Eggs by Easy Eggs. Talk about a huge load of calories!

Games

The Beerfest wouldn’t be complete without BEER PONG! I’ve only ever saw these electronic tables on YouTube. Apparently they have LED lights installed and cover almost the entire surface area of the table! Cool!!!!

They’ll also have ELECTRONIC DARTS and a Golf Simulator

I don’t really get the whole golf simulator thing. Alcohol and precision of a swing don’t exactly meet eye to eye.

From the information I’ve seen on their site, I believe only UOB Cardholders are eligible for the VIP Package. If you’re not a UOB Cardholder, tough luck because what they’re offering is SICK!

Free flow beer (of selected brands)

A VIP kit

Access to the VIP area

AND EXPRESS ENTRY to the event

You had me at Free Flow Beer the rest are just added bonuses. Oh and guess who’s a UOB Yolo Card owner? Moi!

That Being Said

That’s it, I was kind of on the fence about whether to grace the event with my presence but, I’m sold. I’m going. Probably on Saturday. See you all there!
